    I have 98 2WD with a 2.4l motor 5 speed manual.
    I want to raise it up. It is no longer a daily driver.

    My goal is to look like a lifted 4X4. but maybe that is stupid...


    I searched around, I see Fab Techmakes 2 kits that will work.
    1. Fabtech 3" Spindle Lift
    http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/cart/FTS41307.html
    Will need Shocks front and rear and Shackles $668.00

    2.Fabtech 3.5" Control Arm Lift
    http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/cart/FTS4130-4.html
    will need rear shock and Shackels $869.00

    I am looking to lift the truck enough to go off roading
    But i am not sure if I need both, or just 1 or the others.

    I will need tires and rims as well.
    I am truley a newbie on this lift stuff.

    Please help...

    I want to it right the first time.
    Later on i hope to get a locker rear end for off roading a bit.
    Or swapping rear ends. maybe something with 6 lugs.

    I realy want to lift...

    i know lowering is cheaper.

    Heck maybe selling my 4X2 and buying a 4X4 would be cheaper..
    But I know the history of my truck to well.

    I hate buying cars with over 30K miles. the unknow of oil change history scares me..

    Eat more. At least, that'll work for the driver's side.

    Found this site.

    They have aLong travel kit. $2600, but will make a 2X4 beefy...
    Plus shock, tires, wheel, and possible fender and bed mods needed as well.
    So pricy over all, but solid..
