Personally, I don't think I would do a 5" lift unless using the extra clearance for off road use.
I wanted to do a bunch of off roading with my 1st gen Canyon, so I did a 4" lift, and it worked out great. After a few years though, I found myself not going off road much, largely because I am hours away from any decent legal trails.
Now, I still love the look, and have the capability to go far off the beaten path, but I'm left with a truck that my wife and dog have a harder time getting into, is harder to load cargo into, and sucks more fuel than it needs to.
When I buy my next truck, unless I move to an area with more off road driving opportunities, I will likely not go beyond a level kit, and 31-32" tires.
