lift it, or sliders and level?

Here's my situation. I sold a bicycle, got $1000 for it. I spent about 100 bucks getting stuff for the new house. so i'm left with about $900.
Now, your opinion comes in...
I can either get 5100's all around, and wheelers 5 leaf pack. or i could just level the front with 5100's, and get some sliders to get me over the tougher obstacles.
what do you think?
I am selling a honda shadow, and going to buy a sport bike, so the extra money could go towards that if I go sliders and level it out.
my truck's main use is DD and camping, no crazy wheeling.
and once i get a new sport bike i'll be riding to work, so whatchya think?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

haha well, maybe what we consider crazy is different. I've already mangled the rockers enough. i'll be getting sliders either way, but if I'm taller I can get them when the funds come in.

On the contrary.... when you're stock and sitting low to the ground, you NEED sliders (atleast, where I wheel you do).

Yeah...I know....Being as he said he didnt do any "Crazy" Wheeling, I figured his rockers were safe.....after more info was given, and he mentioned he has already hit them, I would say he, indeed, needs sliders.
