    I went with a 6" lift. But I want bigger tires.

    If this is your hobby, you'd be happy with a 4-6" lift. I have a superlift because I've found them to be a decent price with great quality. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I like my 4" lift because it doesnt take a lot of correction to get the steering and driveline working right. I would say get the ORD shackle flip if you can, i replaced my 4" blocks with it and its awesome as far as getting the pinion angle right the first time and no vibes. You can also get a body lift later to fit bigger tires and still be solid and simple suspension.
