Lift suggestions

I have an '03 f-350, right now I have the rough country 2.5" leveling kit on it with 35x12.50 mickey thompson ATZs on 17x9 Mickey thompson classicIIs I have been wanting to go bigger, Was thinking of a 4" possibly 6" this is my daily driver and don't wanna get too big with it. Any suggestions of lifts with tire and wheel sizes? Pictures would be cool too. I do like the Skyjacker lifts as they have some that have replacement leaf spring fro front and rear.

I was between the 4 and 6 inch lift for a while myself. I went with the 6 inch lift and 37 inch tires. I couldn't be happier. It is tall but not too tall and still rides like a stock truck. I know I wouldn't have been happy with a 4 inch lift.

Yeah that's what I'm afraid of honestly that's where I am now I thought I'd be happy with a leveling kit but it's been on it almost a year and I'm not. Your truck looks real good by the way! I like the stance of it a lot.
