I'm running four inches 3 inch suspension and 1 inch bl.
If I were you, I would buy a coilover and set it at three inches and then get a RB 1 inch BL. That would be more economical than buying something like a procomp 4 inch lift and you could install everything yourself.

I only rub on certain situations and its never that bad. I dont rub on road at all. I dont like BLs but I figured a 1 inch would be ok. I also beat the fender wells flat at the pinch weld so that helped alot too.

If your rims are 15x8 you wont rub that much with 3 suspension and 1 body. Do the pinch weld mod on top of all that and you will be good.

Every truck is different. Even given the same suspension setup, rims, tires, and vehicle specs (year, body style, engine, etc.), some people will experience rubbing issues, while others won't. I know that doesn't provide much comfort, but as long as you go with an adequate amount of lift (4-6"), you'll more than likely be able to minimize or eliminate whatever rubbing you may experience afterward by doing other things like pounding your pinch weld, etc.
