You wouldnt need a body lift just suspension. If you going just for looks you could get a spacer lift from revtek which raises your truck 3 inches. Or you can go with bilstein 5100s for a 2.75 lift which alot of people go that route just depends on how much your willing to spend and what its used for. and... WELCOME TO TW!

If you plan to actually drive your truck off road. I would suggest a suspension lift. You can search places like Toytec.com and various lift dealers but before you buy make sure to look around on this board to see if any one is offering to sell theirs or a Group buy is going on no to mention they often times have specials if you are a member of this site.

Here is a rough starter for your trucks suspension options that wont require permanant modification. Starting with cheapest/worst and going to best. A 4x4 cant run spindles. We wont get into long travel suspension or drop bracket lifts either.

Front

1. Spacers
2. Longer/replacement shocks and springs
3. Coilovers

Rear

1. Blocks
2. Add A Leafs (AAL)
3. New replacement rear springs/shocks

Spacers and blocks are cheap and effective but everything is negative as far as performance. Almost everything is better for coilovers and new springs and shocks in the rear.

If you get 2.5" or more of lift you need a new upper control arm to fix your allignment.

That should get you started.
