I have a 2012 reg cab silverado 4x4 and have been very happy with is so far. Last Sunday i was towing a car to go replace the engine and a reg cab z71 pulled up next to me with a lift kit. And now thanks to that ass hole I have been bitten with the bug. His was a 6" kit but i am considering a 4" since i have a babty on the way and do not want to hassle with a car seat if I ever have to put her in my truck. Secondly I just bought new wheels so i do not want to put my self in a situation were I have to buy a whole new set up so I do not want to go over 33" tires. Lastly and the most important is I tow alot with my truck up ward 8k regularly. With a 6" inch lift on a regular cab would my stability go down the shitter? I also have concerns about my bed being usuable as i am only 5'6". So now let me know your experiences. Here is a pic of my truck.

If you get a 4" you'll be happy....until you pull up to a stop light and there's that guy. He will look down at you and be filled with pride. You will look up at him and be pissed...lol

 

Seriously get the 6". You can run whatever size tire on your wheels so I'm not sure why you would need different ones. But 33s look great with a 6" lift. You should still be able to tote kids and use the bed. Towing can still be achieved as well.

 

I've been loading kids in mine and piling the bed with crap for years and it doesn't bother me one bit. I'm 6'3" but my truck is quite a but higher.

Meet in the middle.

 

Your best bet is the Rancho 4 inch lift, because you actually get 5 to 5.5 inches of lift out of it. It is THEE perfect kit for 33 inch tires.

 

Also, since Rancho is an OEM supplier to GM, it is by far the best kit to have on your truck if a warranty issue arises.

the 6" does sound nice but how does it affect stabillity? I frequently tow upwards 8K with my truck and being a short wheel base i am affraid my trailer would over power me.

I'm in a similar situation. I've heard that the higher suspension lift will put more stress on your front-end components. So I may have a new idea what I will do: 4 inch lift now, then maybe add a small body lift in the future. I am only looking to run 33 inch tires either way.

Go with the 6" and you will be happy, cause as some have said you will get the 4" and then want the 6" later on. I also have kids and had a newborn as well at the time mine was lifted. As long as you have nerf bars getting in and out wont be a problem, well at least for me. I know I have a CC and you have a regular, but I also had a regular as well prior to the CC and it still wasnt an issue for me.
