Default Rancho 4" lift or skyjacker 4 -6" kit?

Who has either of these kits?

Can you post some pics of what you have and also if you have aftermarket tires let me know what size you have on with these kits?

Also what did you pay for the kit, and what did you pay for installation?

Just trying to get an idea of what I should expect for pricing, so I don't get taken for a RIDE.

Thanks in advance.

Rancho 4 inch lift with 9000xl shocks
$2100 for parts through 4wheelparts minus the $500 rebate.
$400 for install and alignment at 4wheelparts.
Rides awesome, much better than stock did or with the level kit I used to have on it. Sorry the picture is that great. I can get more in a couple days.

Blue oval,

If you get a chance will you measure the bottom of the front fender to the ground so I can get an Idea of how much difference it is than the 2" level.

I bought some terra grappler 325 60 R20s and I am having terrible rubbing, even after doing some trimming. They are actually too wide, because like you I kept the stock 20s. I put some 1" spacers on to keep the off the upper control arm, but man they rub EVERY time I turn into somewhere.

I am trying to find out if a 4" will be enough or if I will have to go with the skyjacker 5" or maybe even the 6". I don't want to go too high, but don't want to get the 4 and it not be enough.

Thanks

Also noticed that you have a superchips programmer. Does it help to regain the power loss from the bigger tires?

Unfortunately I don't know where my tape measure is but I will try to find one tomorrow for you. And yeah I noticed the programmer helped bring the power back up. It lacks a little but not to bad at all.

I have the Skyjacker 6" lift. I think it looks and rides great. I have 35" Procomps with 20" wheels. I will try to post pics this afternoon. I had it for about a year and a half. Sometimes my wife and daughter complain its a little rough while riding in the back seat. I chalk that up to the fact they could never be happy for me. The funny thing is every time we need to go somewhere they always want to take the truck! I did have to trim the front fender wells cause of rubbing. The total cost was 5100.00.
