Why is a 4inch lift considered better than a 6 inch one?
generally you get more flex and a softer ride while also keeping a lower cog.
I guess its all preference and it depends on what you are doing. What was said above is correct. If your fourwheeling on rocks like a lot of us here, then 4" is generally better cause it offers more flex and a lower cog. If your mud bogging, then you might get swamped with 4" and maybe a 8-12" lift is better. It wont articulate, but it will keep you out of the mud.
Also the 6" cost more, you need longer brake lines, need to chance your steering set-up. I have a 6" on my tow rig with 37" tires.
