Default 2011 ram 1500 looking for advice on 4'' and 6'' lift kit

i'm looking for some advice/ opinions on 4'' and 6'' lift kits. just recently i put a sst 2.5'' readylift lift kit in my truck. it is a nice lift but im just not sitting tall enough. i was wondering if some one cane help guide me on a nice 4/6'' lift kit and how the ride quality is. obviously the qulity is going to be not as good as stock but do you start to run into things starting to break? i know superlift 4'' is so post to be good but idk about the 6'' and if there is a major difference in installation?

There should be no difference really with installation between the 4 and the 6. As far as ride quality goes most members report that ride quality stays the same if not gets a little nicer with a good quality lift. I would bet its because of the upgrade in shocks usually associated with lifts.

Is there anything specifically your looking to raise the truck to use it for? Certain size tire you wanna run? Most guys have really good luck with the RCX lift kits
