Most people do a 6" because its only 100-200 more than a 4". Also I say go with at least 35" tires

Yup, what the guys above said. Go for the 6". You'll regret it if you don't. And you'll want at least 35's if not 37's

4" and 35's looks sweet and can't be beat for a daily application. I am the minority around here though most will say go big, but having been down that road I say go functional.

Most people can't look at 2 identical trucks 1 with a 4" and 35's and 1 with a 6" and 35's and tell the difference unless they are side by side. If you step up to 37's get the 6".

Seems like the answers you received will still make you confused. Lol
Truly....decide what you're after look and appearance wise and max tire you'll run and make a decision based on that.

Noticed you're in NB, so when you're ready and need pricing on lift me wheels, let me know. We have helped many Canadians on these boards with wither zero duties or minimal duties as we ship from both the US and within Canada as well

I agree with this. I think 4" lift and 35s looks proper. Its what I want.
