I have the BDS 6" and I love it. The BDS 6" with strut spacers is pretty much the same lift as the 4" just with higher strut spacers (which is why I'm chiming in). Rough Country also has an excellent reputation. You'll do well with either. I aggressively off-road as a hobby, and the BDS has held up great.

I'm running a 4" BDS lift and I love it. The ride is way better than factory and it really performs amazing on the off-road. I also have Fox coils and shocks on all four corners. Worth every penny spent!

It's the shocks that improved the ride, not the lift kit.

Funny, I put a bds sticker on my rear window, ride quality is amazing!

I just bought a 6” bds lift. Mainly for the warranty too. I, unfortunately, am not my own warranty. I got a killer deal on the kit so that why I went bds. And FYI RC pretty much has the same warranty that zone offers. Both are rated to not mess with your stability control, both are limited lifetime to original purchaser, except the RC come with a 5 yr/100k power train protection. That even more than bds which is 5yr/60k. That’s IIRC. Either way just make sure you post pics of finished product. And if I didn’t get such a great deal, I would’ve bought the RC and sprung for their vertex coil overs.

Right.

Anyone can get upgraded shocks on any of these. Just so happens BDS offers Fox options right now.

With RC the money saved can easily go toward Fox or Bilsteins for the rear even.

Can one just use, say, 5100s for shocks/struts?

Yes, you could with the front and the lift spacer.
The rear you would need to get the 5100's for 4" lifts or 6" lift if you go that route.

I’m about to put the 4” RC on my 16 and currently have 5100’s front and rear. Guy at the shop told me he thought my 5100 rears may work...... thinks I’ll just be proactive and by the Bilstein for the 4” lift
