6" RC lift or 4" RC lift?
Okay, I'm tired of ***** footing around in my truck. I want to drive it like it's meant to be. i was looking on Rough Country's website, and they have a new 4" suspension lift.
But the 6" is the same amount of money.
My truck is in my signature, stock height so far, with 33"x12.50R18 tires. Tell me what you all think i should do, if anyone has pictures of both, it would be greatly appreciated, as it will help me with my decision.

Well seeing as how they are both the same price, I would go with the 6" lift. I would suggest a set of cast CST 5" lift spindles, but I know that you are going to actually use your truck so I won't make that suggestion. So If you lift it even higher with that leveling kit, won't it make your truck have about 8 inches of lift? If so are you going to get even bigger tires, because your current one's might look small on there. But hey for $1,000 you can't beat that price!2004 Chevy Colorado

That's the only thing that makes me want a 4" lift, is because my 33" tires will look small with the 6" lift, but then when i want to upgrade my tires to larger ones, i wont need to spend money getting the 6" lift. If i want to get bigger tires, the extra $100 per tire is very convincing to get the 33" ones again. instead of the 35" ones.

I would still go with the 6" kit. The 33's could look a little bit on the small side but i know from personal experience that those toyo m/t's will only make it to 20,000 miles if your lucky and if you know how to go easy on tires. I think when it comes time to change the tires you may regret the 4" kit because of the tire size limitations. Personally, I would get the 6" kit and go for 35's when its time for new tires.Michael, 17, CA

Definitely go with the 6"!! If you get a 4", some day your gonna walk outside and say: Man I wish I wud've got a bigger lift!! but If you get a 6" you'll never wish you had got the 4"!! ..If your like me, even with the 6", you'll still wanna go higher!! lol

Get the 6 if your planning on getting at least 35 inch tires but if you want to stick with your tires now go with the four. Either way it will look much much better than the stock stance.
