4" to 6"?

so im shopping around for lift kits right now and im stuck between 4 and 6 inch kits. i can get them for the same price so that cant exactly be a tie breaker. if i could find someone with the lifts i and take a look at them in person it would be easier, but no such luck. so my question is if i get a 4" lift and end up wanting more, is there like an add a leaf or blocks i can use to make up the next 2 inches? or would it be easier to get a 6" lift and knock it down a bit if that ends up bein too much?

What brand? It should be new shocks and coils to switch between the two.

I added 3 of 4 minipack leveling blocks under my 2.5 RC leveling kit to achieve a little over 4". You can add minipack blocks under a 4" to get 6" but it will ride terribly. I took mine off after about a month and did a shackle lift!

I would do a 4" front shackle lift and if u want to go higher add 2" lift springs. Add 5" lift springs in the rear and remove the 2" blocks which will give u 3" of lift in the rear. U want to go higher, put the blocks back in. But ultimately stay away from that pro comp lift and do it right the first time.
