Default Lift for 2011 questions

Just got a 2011 1500 QC, and I'm thinking about lifting it. My previous truck was a chevy with a factory 4" lift, so I've never done to much as far as setting everything up, which brings me to my questions.
1) What are good brands/methods of lift kits, that are at the low to mid price range?
2) would it be easier/ more cost efficient to do a body or suspension lift?
3) What size tires could I run without running into problems (rubbing etc.) with a 3-4" lift?
4) Any advice for someone who doesn't know anything about lifting a truck?

Thank y'all for your help.

first, you get what you pay for so shopping for price may not be the way to go. i have aev on my jeep, but they have nothing for dodge. might want to check with old man emu. if you haven't put a lift on before research death wobble before you order lift.
just saw you are at camp pendleton, if they still have the auto work bays, i am sure you can get plenty of help from guys that have done this.

Will look into that. They do still have the auto shop, and I'm fortunate enough to be with a maintenance shop as well. Thanks for the advice.
