    This will be on a 1ton chevy p/u. Dont care about cutting fender. I would like to be able to use my stock driveshafts for now. Will be running 38s. So 4 or 6? Do a lot of you have a 4 and wish you went with a 6? Nothing over six. would like to keep it somewhat low. Just want to hear what some of you have to say.

    thx mike

    I've ran 38.5's on a 4" lift, 4" lift + 2" body lift and 6" lift + 2" body lift. Ultimately I like the 6" + 2" that I'm currently running. I thought I wanted a lower setup as well but due to the mud and trails we run over here a taller lift was needed. My approach angles were not very good and I did not want to move my axles.
