Rough country or zone lift?

I have a 2006 1500 qc 4x4. Im prioritizing my upgrades and a 4" lift is on my list. I bought my truck with a leveling kit and 325/60 20 on stock rims with wheel spacers. I never liked the spacer idea for safety and my tires rub on full turn in reverse. So I've been looking around at different lifts and it looks like BDS is one of the top choices. Just a bit to much for my budget. So I'm thinking a zone lift kit or rough country lift kit with bilstien shocks.

What do you guys think? I don't off road I'm looking for a good riding comfortable ride.

I would say zone. Rough country is cheaply made. Will be buying a 6" zone lift for the mega shortly myself

How about the bilstien shocks? Are the 5100's the way to go?

If you go with a zone kit you can select which shocks you want. Not sure what they are I like the brushed aluminum shocks myself

Looks like zone website only has zone shocks. I emailed them to check if they can sell me the lift with out the shocks. I'm definitely going bilstein or fox all the way around not sure which ones yet.

I just ordered moog upper control arms, lower ball joints and tie rod ends my ball joints have been shot for a while so this should make it feel way better.
