I have iro's ultimate 4in on mine and I love it it works great and it's reasonable priced it comes with everything you need. I paid around 1100 for mine.

How far is your rear tire lifted off the ground?

Probably 4 foot or so I'm not sure. I can go more than that but my shocks aren't long enough.

With the kit I got they give you a tcase drop kit but I couldn't use it because I have the 6 speed. With the drop kit on it it wouldn't allow it to go in 2nd 4th 6th or reverse because it would hit the floor. So I did have to do a sye and driveshaft. But it comes with all 8 adjustable control arms so its really easy to change your pinion angles. I would recommend it to anyone. And iro customer service is really good if you have any questions. Also lifetime guarantee on parts

looks more like ~2 ft based on that lift pillar....

most pallets are about 40" (3.3 ft)....

2 is probably right. Either way I am completely satisfied with it. It works great for what I use it for
