Deciding what size lift

I'm going to do a suspension lift on my 2002 f250 4wd. I currently have 35's on it and plan on staying with 35's for quite some time.

I'm trying to decide between a 4'' and 6''...I'm concerned the 6'' would look goofy with 35's though (Like the body would be too far above the tires)

The 6'' would give room to grow though if I decided to go with bigger tires, I'm just concerned 35's are too small for a 6''

Looking for any opinions and insight or pictures.
Thanks in advance

What kind of mpg's are you getting on your truck? I'm not too concerned with that, just wanted to get an idea of what to expect.

Definitely go with the 6. 90% of the time people wish they had gone bigger not smaller
