Default Lift Questions, picts would help!

Hi All,
I've been looking for picts that specify tire size, rim size, and lift size (and brands), and it's a struggle to pull that info together on the net..... so I'm asking for some help. I'm looking for picts on a couple things I think I like...I have a Gray 1500 Crew:
1. A 4" Lift with 35" tires on 20" rims.
2. A 4" lift with 35" tires on 18" rims.

Some 6" lifts look great, and I wouldn't want to go higher than that. I have a 2" leveling kit already. (Would a 4" lift be in addition or does it have to be removed? Do your picts have a leveling kit?) My goal is larger, clean, and proportionate tires to lift ratio. It's my daily driver.

FYI - my WA state dealership quoted parts on the 4" Mopar today @ $2500. I asked them to improve the cost for me, and they dropped it to $2165 in seconds. I have not made a purchase yet.
Here's to Ramforumz - your the best. - Hoops

i believe it depends on what lift and what leveling kit you have. some are compatible some are not (i believe someone correct me if im wrong), when you go to buy lift just let them know what leveling kit you have and they should be able to provide you with a compatible lift kit.
oh and im partial to the 35's on 18's, for 2 reasons, one is the price of the tire is drastically cheaper, second is if you do a lift and actually use it for off roading, it better to have more rubber
hope this helps
