A little search goes a long way.

Theres no problem with asking a question in its own thread, however a little search probably would have given you your answer.

Depending on which 3.5" lift you decide to get, they can actually net you close to 4" or more. Most 3" kits are good about giving you right at 3" of lift (once the springs settle of course). But if you're just asking the difference in looks between 3" of lift and 3.5" of lift.. The difference is marginal at best. Nothing that you'll really notice.
