LIFTS.... shocks vs coils

Hey Guys,

I am going to lift my 05, but not sure which to go with.... money is a bit of an issue, so I can't go all out.

Should I go with STOCK coils, and 5100s in front and rear (w/ AAL in rear)

OR

STOCK shocks, and coil lift with AAL in rear?

only doing light off roading, mudding... so ultimate performance is not crazy issue,
I just want to know pros and cons of both setups.

Cheers

5100s with stock coils. IIRC stock shocks are not long enough to do a coil lift. You could do the 5100s with coils I heard that rides pretty nice, but depending on your budget I think 5100s with stock coils are the way to go.
