4 is as high as any dealership around my area will allow apparently. I've called every dealership within about an hour and get the same answer: 4 inch mopar lift, installed by mopar technician.

If this is the case, why not just grab the SuperLift kit as it will cost you less than the Mopar one which is the SuperLift kit?
Unless they are giving your the 'it will void warranty crap'

You got it. Im getting the warranty crap from every dealership i call. One dealership is going to sell the mopar lift for around 3300 installed with alignment which is the best price I've gotten so far. Still a lot of dough lol

$3300 is a lot
Not sure what other options you got.
You can always get the kit and add Bilsteins (to the front) and rear coil spacers (to the rear) to it to get it higher if you wanted to....

Unless you do our own lift. All they can void is the suspension warranty. Not your complete warranty

So you think the 20X10 -24 would work with 37/12.50X20 as well? Then I'll just need a 1" rear spacer and the Bilstein 5100 for the front, correct? Just not sure yet what route I'm going. I look at all the trucks with the 37's and it does look better I think....

20x10 will fit 100% in those tires. no question about it. offset is irrelevant to the tire. all offset does is control how close or how far you want the wheel in respect to your trucks body/

What lift kit are you going with again?
Also, what is you current rake?
to find this out, park your truck on flat ground and measure your front and rear fenders (from ground to fender)
This will tell you your rake and then you can determine what setting to place the Bilsteins at.
Some dont require a rear coil spacer.
Some trucks have so much rake that even maxed bilsteins still give them a 1" rake.

I'm going 6" BDS. Was gonna go with Fox shocks but I think I'll go with Bilsteins so I can adjust them. I don't know what the rake is, I'm up north working but I'll be home tomorrow then I'll measure it.

With BDS lifts and most members I know with it, typically max their Bilsteins and still have rake.
So rear coil spacers may not be needed at all.

But knowing your rake before lifting helps out tremendously
