    I already have a 6" tuffcountry, but don't know if I should go w'a 4" to keep the CG low. i don't mind "trimming" at all, just want the truck to be functional. so what would you do.

    Re: 4

    same here,,i'd keep the six and just do some good trimming. im running 4" lift and 3" body and i needed to not really trim a whole lot with my 39.5 mickey's. only thing i run into is the steering arm rubbing on the tire when i turn,not had the time to mess around with it lately though.
    you will definately have to trim a good bit off the front and rear of the fenders if you plan on stuffing the tires,,but making it look good in the end is not that hard,,and the sawzall and 4" wheel grinder help[​IMG]

    Use the 6" and save the money for gas for the next AZ run.
