Default is a 6 inch lift that much higher than a 2 inch lift

I have a 2 inch lift right now and I was wondering if I got a 6 inch lift would it really be that noticeable in terms of ground clearance? Because 4 inches doesn't sound like a lot.

It's a ton. If you really want ground clearance though you need to get bigger tires.

Yeah if I were to get a 6 inch lift I'd put 35's on it too. I just wanted to know if it's worth dropping 1200$ on a lift kit.

LOL he asked her how 2" was he got the leveling kit. You'd be surprised how much it is. For example, I have a Mustang and I lowered it 1.5'' and it makes a BIG difference appearance wise. In my mind when I see a leveled truck it's like ok that's a tad bit taller than factory but a 6" lift you're like damn that's a big truck. It's gonna look funny w/out 35's

6 inches gives you the ability to clear 37's. So you gain quite a bit of clearance just from the tires alone but yeah, 6 inch lifts are big. Get a 4 and go with 35's or a 6 and 37's but 37's are almost certainly going to make you want to regear while 35's probably wont.
