Awesome, thanks for the break out fastNugly.

I was messing around with the truck builder on the Fuel wheel website.

The "Octane Chrome Chrome" look pretty good, close to stock appearance. I actually like my stock wheels, but realize they won't work with 35's and I'm not risking a spacer. I'd love to move to a less chrome setup like the Ram and Ford gray examples above, but there's something great about having a paid off truck too! I'm leaning strongest toward building mine with the feedback y'all have provided.

Fuel Octanes are nice wheels. I like em too buy the black seems to look dark grey at times and is why I have not gone with it
A paid of truck is much better than payments. I'd go that route for sure

Has anyone documented the various max height (or min clearance) for each lift kit?

I'm wondering if a 4" would be smarter than a 6" to get into some parking garages. Also, is there any functional / performance / ride quality differences between a 4" and 6" ?

This is all preference and what you'll use your truck for.
There is no difference between 4" and 6" other than height difference
Ride is the same and quality is the same.
Max tire on a 4" is 35's
6" can fit 37's

If you type in pro comp, BDS and RCX comparison in google, you'll find a link to a thread. Not on this forum, but another.
I can't mention it here, but it has been document.

i read that comparison a while back, very nice reading material

OP

You will notice some of the 4" lifts actually cost more than the 6" lifts, alot of people i have seen use billstiens, ranch, or prorunner adjustable shocks which get you between 0-2.8" of lift depending on what you set them too, and they they will do an 1.25" or a 3" body lift, and save alot of money just a thought.

Thanks
