    I think 4" would be as high as I would go (3" if using spacers). That way I am still able to tow without a ridiculously long drop hitch. With a 3" or higher lift, 35" tires are almost mandatory. I went with a 3/1 and 285/65/r20 KO2s. If you are 4WD and go with a spacer lift, be sure and drop your diff to normalize the geometry. Rough Country makes a decent kit including diff-drop spacers.

    Welcome!
    3-4" is great for looks and functionality.

    Higher than 3-4" is looks. Also, if you are going that high, it may limit where you can park, and may have to cut the frame depending what kit you go with.

    Welcome to the site. 3-4 inches is perfect. 6 is just too much.
