The other issue I'm not thrilled with is that you have to cut that small piece out of the frame of the truck. I wouldn't care on an older truck but when the window sticker says $60,000 (not what I paid) it makes me a little nervous. I'd like to hear more from guys that have the 4"-6" lifts and what sort of vibrations they get, only in 4X4 or all the time?
Truck will be arriving in about 4 weeks so I'd like to make a decision.

6'' rcx lift, 1.25 rcx body lift, adjustable shockas at 2.75 and 1.75 rear coil spacers and i have NO vibrations.. good point above about zone over rcx for 4''... but if youre gunna pay the price for a zone 4'' why not get a rcx 6''? when it comes to lifts its all opinion everyone has a different one. the guys who got suckered into paying that huge price for a bds will be bds lovers... and most of the guys who run rcx love them aswell

Thanks Chadster, hopefully some others will chime in as well. At the moment I have 35" which I hope will look OK if I do go to the 6" lift. It would be nice having the extra clearance in the winter when driving on hard water as the snow can get pretty deep at times.

Ya, I definitely know what you mean about cutting the frame. I'm not a huge fan of that either. But just think about how cool your truck will look once you do it
