Which 4\" lift?

Its finally time boys and girls...As long as I don't run into any snags, I may be finally lifting my truck. After a little shopping around, it will happen this summer. I've been waiting for this moment for soooo long, probably about 5 years ago when I first joined this board, before they went to this new lay out. Back in the days of Bigburb, and Tex was around all the time. Wonder where they went?
Anyway, enough of being nostalgic. I want to know what everybody thinks is the best 4" susp. lift out there. I wanted to get a Dick Cepek, but I don't believe they make a 4". Sucks that I have to go 4", but 6" probably wouldn't fit in the garage. I used to think Trailmaster was good, but I've heard things. So gimme some input cuz I'm ready to go BIG, well sort of. And how much total lift does it give with 4 inches of lift with 33" tires. Is it safe to assume that if I run 265/ 75/ 16's now, that with 33x12.50x15 plus a 4 inch lift that it will be 6 inches higher???

Thanks
-Tom

Re: Which 4\" lift?

I have had good luck with my Trailmaster...but you should look around, I'm sure there are better kits around now.

I used to be on the old board too. I went by R.C. back in early 98. I never registered here with the new format until last year. Finally got tired of just looking. Anyway, good luck with your lift.

Well im not sure about 4" but if for some reason you decide to go with 6" i would go with BDS Suspension http://www.bds-suspension.com they are really good lifts and have a great warrenty... if it ever breaks they replace it no questions asked, and they stand behind that warrenty.

black diamond is now offering lifts. 4"-6" lifts and body lifts too.

Moving up two inches in tire size only gains 1" in height.
