It'll look ridiculous, yes. For a 4" lift you'd want 35s at a minimum, 37s even.

Approach, breakover, and departure angles are all improved by a lift. Lifts also allow you to run bigger tires, and provide more room for flex. So they improve a lot of clearance-ish type things.

kjeeper10 Agree... Stay away from body lifts.

A budget boost is very easy to install. Spacers are placed on top of the coils and you will get exactly what's listed for height.

Most aftermarket coils are rated for weight and might give you more than advertised.
Not a good thing if building on a budget and want to avoid DS/steering issues.

Not a body lift!!. Just look at a budget bost. No more than 2.5" here is my suggestion, http://www.krawloff-road.com/product_p/tf-1355210.htm

That site is Krawl off road. They are a vender on the forum and are great people to order from. PM them (Jason). They will give you a great price.

Good luck and remember once it starts it won't stop.

MTH It'll look ridiculous, yes. For a 4" lift you'd want 35s at a minimum, 37s even.

I would advise against a Rough Country 4" lift--that's too much height to use a "discount brand," in my opinion. Major changes should be done with at least relatively high end parts.

Also, no matter what lift you choose, if you go 4" up you've got to factor in the other improvements that likely wont come with the kit, driveshafts being a biggie.

It's probably better to start by asking what size tires you want to run, and then deciding on lift height accordingly.
