2015 Crew Cab 4WD - From Lowered to Lifted

I get bored easily, so I decided to change things up a bit on my daily driver. I pulled the 2/3 lowering kit off, and switched it out with a 3/1 lift kit and 35's over the weekend. I love the way it turned out. Which way do you guys like best?

Both ways are good! Makes more sense up a little if it's a tow though.

Appearance wise, I like it lowered. Being a support vehicle it maybe more practical lifted....

I actually prefer to tow with a lower vehicle. Makes it easier to see the trailer when backing up, better performance/mileage, and the handling is better.

The new lifted stance rides smoother (which may just be because of the extra sidewall with the 35's and 17" wheels), but it does have considerably more body roll. This is a temporary lift setup though as I have a set of tuned Icon front coilovers and adjustable 2.5" rear resi shocks with 1.5" progressive rear coils on order that will replace the current setup. Those should help make the truck feel more stable and lift the rear of the truck another 3/4" to give it just a little rake. It takes them a month to build the shocks, so I just figured I would run this in the meantime.
