Default Lift and Wheels for 2010 1500

I plan on lifting my 2010 1500 in the near future and have been trying to decide on which lift. At this point its between a 4" RCX, Rancho, or Zone. The reason is I will be going with 35 x 12.50 x 20 Nitto Trail Grapplers on aftermarket wheels and IMO 35" look good with a 4". Do any of the kits I mentioned level the truck more than another or do I need Bilisteins to achieve a close to level truck? Also, I was told by a 4 wheel shop that the Rancho is more like a 6". Is there any truth to that?

Another struggle I'm having is to go with black/machine or chrome wheels? I've searched and can't find many pics of a 4th gen Red SLT's with black/machined wheels. The wheels I like are 20x9 Fuel Hostages in black with machined face or helo 835 just worried they might not look good on my truck with all the chrome. I welcome any suggestions and opinions.
