I have the 6in and I dont think it is to big. I think it sits almost perfect looks wise. I have never had the 4 in kit but the 6in really doesnt seem to flex that badly

I agree with the 6". I put it on with 33's and I feel like it is about the right height now for a 4x4. I parked next to a Chevy Z11(?) 4x4 with a 3" body lift and he was still a couple of inches taller than me.

I had been thinking about BJ's 6" lift, a 3" body lift, and some fender trimming in order to clear 35 X 12.5's. Should I re-think my plans? Forgive this newbie question, but could one re-gain some articulation with the use of revolvers?

I saw an earlier post in which someone was trying to decide between an SOA and revolvers or a 6" lift. I'd LIKE to do an SOA, but lack the mechanical know-how and it would cost too much to have an off-road shop do it, so my question is wil revolvers give you back some of the articulation you lose with a 6 inch lift?

Just for comparison sake:



4" with 33's with 'minor' fender trimming. Key is wheel size and backspacing (15X8 3.75" backspace) and yes it gets wheeled with the swaybar disconnected. I kept mine low so the kids can get in and out easy.
