How much are yo looking to spend? There is Donahoe for coilovers and Add A Leaf's (AAL's) and Toytec has a budget lift that includes spacers and a AAL. Procomp and Fabtech make a more intensive lift that requires a bit of cutting an welding

Hope it helps!!

make sure when u decide on a lift that its not stressin your balljoints and cv joints ur warranty wont cover it and theyre up there in price if they go out. if your not gonna off road it all the time you can go with coil spacers in the front and add a leafs in the rear and 33"s will clear. if you dont want to worry about your joints id go with a fabtech 6" it will come with all the new crossmembers to drop evrything in the front so nothings at an angle so your joints are good to go

I would say get aftermarket coilovers like Sway-A-Ways or Donahoes for the front or AALs or shackles for the rear. Maybe even new leaf packs.

When you say ARB coils are you talking about the OME (Old Man Emu) coils up front?
