Default bilsteins maxed out, wanting to add 4"

I have my bilstein's at 2.8 on my 2013 1500, I want to add a 4" suspension lift, how nose high would it make it? Also i'm planning on running 20x12 -44 with 35" cooper stt pros or fuel grippers. would this setup work fine? Any advice is appreciated!

If you add a 4" lift you'll want to drop down the Bilsteins to 1.4" to keep it level (assuming the rear lift is 3"). Anything higher will make it nose high.

If you want to run 20x12 -44 offset and 35x12.5 tires then I'd recommend going straight to a 6" lift to avoid any rubbing issues.

I actually want it just a little bit nose high, and how much trimming would it take if I just got a 4" or would spacers be an option? I figured if I went with a 6" I'd need to get 37's to get that stuffed fenderwell look

With Bilsteins maxed on a 4" lift you'll likely have to trim the back of the plastic fender liner, front bumper valance, and a bit of the inside of the fender flare on the back. Possibly the pinch weld on the back as well.

If you want it 4" in the rear and still level or slightly nose high then you're looking at a 6" lift again...

This is my rig I've got a 1.25" body lift and 4" suspension lift bills set @2.1 and I'm damn near level with 20x10 -12 offset, and 1.75" wheel spacers so pretty close to a 20x12 -44 and they fit i had a bit of rubbing on the front bumper the lower black plastic piece thats it!

Alright Brandon if i got a 6" instead will it still be a tad nose high with maxxed bilstiens? And would 35s look to small on it? That's the main thing Im concerned with, kinda hesitant to throw on 37's

A 6" lift with Bilsteins at 2.8" will be slightly nose high. The most common setup I recommend to be level is a 6" Zone kit with 5" rear coils and Bilsteins at 2.1". So Bilsteins at 2.8" would be about 0.7"-1" nose high depending on how the truck sits stock.

The 35's may look a little on the small side but since you'll be running 20x12 -44 offset wheels that will definitely make it help look more proportional. You can definitely get away with it.
Checkout @matty_srt on instagram. His old 1500 had a 6" lift with King coilovers bringing up the nose and 20x12 -44 offset Fuel wheels and 35's. A very similar setup to what you're thinking about here.
