    if you get a 4" and add bilsteins its the same as getting a 6" kit anyway, only difference is with a 6" you can always go higher, with 4" and bils that's the max

    Couldn't I get the bils and just keep them at a lower setting for a better ride? The 4" kit comes with bils set at 1" I believe. But I don't say that with a ton of confidence either.

    I'm in the same boat with the 3.21. That's why I am deadset on 35s. Plus I don't want to spend that much on tires for the rest of my life lol

    That's simply the Superlift 4" lift with no Bilsteins to level off the front....so still has slight rake because the Superlift kit lifted 4" in front & 3" in back.

    It was installed through the dealer so completely covered by warranty.

    Superlift is the one I am leaning towards. What was your stock rake? Mine is 3". If I lift the from 4" and the rear 3", wouldn't I still have a 2" rake? I don't want to set my bils that high because my favorite part about my truck is the smooth ride.

    Go 6"
    I went through the same thing. Everyone on here was saying they regret not going bigger. I didn't really take the advice and I went with 4" on 35s.

    I wish I went 6...

    I'm still on the fence whether to get 4" or 6". More pictures would be awesome! I also have the lift narrowed down to Superlift or Zone. Any advice? I only do light offroading (driving through leases and to fishing holes). I do live near the beach so painted parts would be a big deal for me.

    I was the same....3" rake before and 2" now. I don't mind the remaining rake.

    Most people set their Bils for the two lower settings for a level look. As long as the install is done properly you shouldn't have any problem.

    I don't think I've seen a member on here say that tbey wish they would have just done a 4" after putting a 6" kit on.... both look good and just depends on what you're after. Both the zone and superlift kits are good choices. I would go with the 6 unless you have any height restrictions.

    My 4" Superlift with 35s is plenty tall for me. If you have shorter family members you need to take them into consideration as well. My garage opening is 6'11" and my front bils are set at .7. I'm not sure it would fit in the garage if I had a 6" lift.
