    anything above 3" is going to be drop bracket territory. RCD makes a 4.5" kit and there's a plethora of 6" lifts out there

    get bigger tires, but that may require cutting

    ah. So the only thing you can do is grab a DB lift from here

    unless- are you 4x4?

    I would stay away from the body lift but that is just my opinion.
