    I say it depends on what else you plan on doing. If you put on a 6" lift and do nothing else. It will look silly and out of sink. I would like to go 4" but as of right now I have a 2.5 leveling. I have no rake what so ever. I like the that fine for now.

    The leveling kit was all I did on mine, it was all I wanted on this truck, I have gone big before, but dont want that anymore. I do still drool over a good lift and respect what they did to get it there.

    With your truck, crank the torsion bars up a little. Then add a bock out back to level.

    This is setup like a Jeff Foxworthy redneck joke.

    If you're able to look straight into a 2nd floor Window ... from your pickup truck ... You might have too much lift.

    If your local airport tells you that your truck is a hazard to low flying aircraft. ... You might have too much lift.

    If astronauts orbiting the earth can see your truck with the naked eye ... You might have too much lift.
