Go ahead and grab a 6" lift as their barely taller than 4" lifts and only $100 more....
Agreed. Once I finally decided to do mine I couldnt be happier.. I installed my lift with around 5k miles on it. Still has under 10k. Couldnt be happier. For reviews, opinions, etc, look at the build thread.

Meh....I'm not a fan of lifted trucks
The truck becomes too tall
Then you'll need bigger wheels

I'd say keep it stock and never mod cause you won't be happy

Hahaha....true story ^^^

But the Bilsteins setting is 1.4 as there is no 1.7
But you should definitely buy for growth or to stay put.
Spacers to level are for members who are on a tight budget, but I would save another month to get the Bilsteins.

You are traveling down a dangerous road here, it can only lead to the end result....LIFT IT! I put on a level kit and 285's for a couple years, but I couldn't take it anymore and just put on a 6 inch and 35's. Should have done it from day one. It rides better than a level kit and looks great. Just admit it, you need to get a lift

You don't need a 6"lift to get 35" tires on.
