    I've seen many guys on here with the different level of pro comp suspension set ups that are 6". Pretty much everyone will ask you how much off roading you do and your price range to better help you decide what you want. As far as tire size goes, you can run 33s easily with 6 in lift and I've seen many with 35s too. Different tire options will be nitto trail/mud grappler, BF Goodrich MT/AT, and Goodyear Wrangler MT/Duratrac are some of the more popular brands. Again, tires will also depend on a lot of things including: noise, amount of off roading you do, looks, terrain, and price.

    All of it pretty much comes down to your purpose and price range.

    probably offroad once a week like trails and such, but itll also be my ride to work so dont wanna ruin it, just reliable tires for both offroad and regular ride, i live by the beach so sand will also be a factor

    ive heard price ranges be around 900-1500 in lifts, just most reliable most bang for the buck

    Yea, I mean it will take a lot to really "ruin" it, but typically if you get a 6" lift, it will be a slightly stiffer ride.

    As far as I've seen, I think the price range is a little closer to $1200-2800 for 6" lifts. I haven't done a ton of research but that is what I saw on summit racing.

    I suggest you do a lot of research yourself and look around for other trucks on here that have 6" lifts and PM (private message) these guys for more information on their lift.

    If you are looking for more of the 900-1500 price range then you could buy a nice 3" lift for that price.

    Also remember you will add another $1000-1300 for the 35" tires if you go for the 6" lift, and installation will be around $600 for the lift alone if you don't DIY.
