How to get a higher lift?

im thinking just a solid 3 would be good (looking for the cheapest route to take) not an offroad junkie but i want to tear up some nice trails
Kinda want to stay away from body lifts ive heard they suck(really stiff ride)
I currently have 2.5 spacers front 1" block in rear


Also would 285/75R16 size tires make a difference i currently run 265/75R16

get the wheelers three leaf progressive aal and drop shackles in the rear paired with the eibach springs and billies 5100, will give you aprox 3 in the front and 3 in the back depending on the shackles. plus the ride will be alot better with the eibach's vs the spacer.

go either OME or bilstein 5100s and eibach springs on the front and as far as the back goes, i aals will really stiffen up ur ride. im not sure about the blocks. never dealt with them. but although it may be a little pricey, new OME springs for the rear isnt a bad way to go. eventually i wanna score me the toytec ultimate coilover kit. and some new rear springs. just running basic skyjacker 3" with aals right now. as far as the tires, if you dont want any rubbing, stick with what youve got. but if you wanna upgrade to a 285/75R16, you may want to look into what you need to trim first. you may be able to get out of the cab mount chop with spacers or rims with a smaller backspacing. still may have to do a little on the fenders though. imo its not worth it for the extra half inch of lift you get from them.

I was running stock wheels and no wheel spacers. Only started rubbing on the plastic when I got the 12.50s

Lift spindle is what I'd do. And for the back mutil AAL or full leaf pack.

You will significantly improve the ride up front (back to stock) and the ride in the back would be improved as well.

I believe Solo Motorsports makes spindles for your truck. Great company and their product is real high end. Been around for a long time too.


OOOOOP, not the cheapest route to take.... stick with what you got!

I have the very basic kit. Uses factory coils on new front shocks. Same concept of a spacer lift actually. Basically from the plate that the spring sits on down is longer than factory shocks. Then I got aals for the rear. Like I said, it'll stiffen up the ride some but it was pretty inexpensive. Got mine from autoanything. Don't forget to look up coupon codes too. Only pain in the dick was using a spring compressor to get the coils of old shocks and onto the new ones
