Control arms recommendations

Ok, after getting my gears done this week im wanting to do a 6" lift. I plan on getting OME shocks and fabtech coil springs. Im not going to do a long arm lift just because its too expensive and the welding part I dont want to deal with. So what control arms do you guys recommend adjustables or just go with fabtech control arms that are non adjustable? If theres other brands or links that you guys can recommend me it would be great help.

Thanks,
Nick

Yeah I know that, its just that from what i've read you cant go over 4" on stock control arms, but if you upgrade your short arms to lets say rubicon or fabtech CA than you would be able to have a higher lift up to 6" max. I might have just miss read what they were saying so please correct me if im wrong. Im still learning honestly and from what I at least think due to me already having a 4" lift. All I need to get for that extra 2" would be coil springs, shocks, control arms, bump stops, slip yoke elliminator, and a cv driveshaft right? I don't want a body lift so that pretty much out of the question. Please fill me in if theres anything im missing. Sorry if this bring my topic off page some.

Kenneth at KORE makes the best control arms on the planet. These are just a taste. I asked him to tap this 2" .500 Walled DOM for a 1.25" Johnny Joint. Left hand on one end and Right hand on the other. That way my control arms are adjustable on the vehicle.
