4" or 6" with 35's?

Hey all, well finally got the truck back from the shop!!!!!! Was soo tired of driving the stupid mazda 3. So i had a shop quote me 1300 for a 4" Rough Country lift, and 1400 for the 6". they want 600 for install, which i dont think is TOoo bad.

anyone know anything about the RCX lifts? i know the 4" just came out recently, so not alot of people running it. But my main concern with the 6" is that alot of trucks i see with the 6"/35 combo, well the truck looks too high in the front. im not going to go with anything bigger than a 35" tire, this is still my dd.

Let me know!

The 4" Rancho normally yields about 5" of lift.
I still think I may go with a 4.5" lift on mine some day, but if you think might ever look at yours and wish you had more lift, just go with 6".
For me, I think my truck would do most of what I would want as it sits with 35s and locker, but I want a 4.5" lift to put my front suspension angles back where they should be to get a better ride off road. I could care less if the truck next to mine is taller or bigger or whatever, but that's me.

Go big. I say if the 6 inch is only an extra 100, go with it. I think you will be happier in the end.

From my experience on the Bronco forum, all the guys with 4 inch lifts wish they had gone with a 6 inch from the beginning. When I lift my Bronco higher, i'm going with a 6 inch.
