Default Decisions decisions, advise?

Got my trucks narrowed down to 2... both 17ís
1st truck is a black on black truck, stock everything with brand new Michelin Tireís. 65k miles (which is nothing for these trucks?)
Has the black interior that I prefer but not a huge factor. I like the black just as much as the Maroon.
Factory warranty is up, but they said the truck is perfect shape inside and out. (2nd truck has some minor flaws in the leather that they said they can fix to look better, but not like new)
Truck is $57900 which is much lower but higher miles and no lift and they offered $4,500 less on my trade in and they are 8 hours away from me.

2nd is a local truck $65k and ~4Ē king lift? Salesman didnít know much and neither do I as I havenít looked into the lifts since I donít have one yet.
This truck is on 37Ē M/T... ride is stupid rough! I would want to trade out for nitto terra grappler G2 A/T 37Ē for $1500 at the dealer
This dealer is offering $4500 extra on my trade and has 50k less miles than truck 2.
Truck still has factory warranty left, but should I worry about a factory warranty?

Questions: is this a good lift that would ride much smoother with G2 A/Tís? Or is the lift part of the rough issue more than likely?

Love the exterior color, had the brown interior color that Iím not a huge fan of but could deal with it.
I want a good lift 4Ē or so in the future but this one already has it.

2nd truck photos - The manufacturer date is 1/17/2017 next to my trade in with 4Ē lift, makes it look like no lift!

Donít know what to tell you about the lift, but those king shocks arenít cheap. About $1500 just in those and from what Jomax has said about them, they shouldnít be rough.

Also heard many times about rods being weaker on the early Ď17ís...Sootie might chime in on that.

If Iím reading your info correctly, the truck you like more, has less miles, the lift you want, and the net price to you will be less due to favorable trade......

Get the red one if youíll be able to live with the ride.

Iím wondering if the ride can get smoother I just read up on the lift and I wonder if itís just set at a stiff ride and I could turn down the pressure in the shocks? First paragraphs says that but idk if itís up or down now?

Also curious if anyone has feed back on this same lift and if the mud tires could be a big issue for the roughness? Is this a good/great/excellent lift kit? get what you pay forĒ and looking at the price itís a lot more expensive than most 4Ē kits

Thanks for all the fees back so far, Iím figuring out the tire pressure today. Couple other question... do the back seats behind the drive fold down at the back support? The dealer couldnít figure out how one the maroon truck so I didnít know if thatís common or if the previous owner broke something, as he didnít take really good care of the truck from what I can tell.
There was not a spot for the side strap like there is behind the passenger back seat side.

Does the black or brown leather show wear more, or seemingly the same?

Also the dealer ďthoughtĒ it looks like a 4Ē lift but compared to this photo and the fact it has 37x13.50 tires do you think itís a 6Ē? Would a 37x12.50 ride a lot smoother? 2 pics of 6Ē lift vs 2 pics of the truck Iím looking at.

4 or 6Ē.....My 350 already has 3.5Ē blocks between the axle and spring, so a 4Ē lift would be 7+. Should be pretty easy to determine if you could get a picture of the hardware.

.

Then you know.
