    Body lifts aren't safe, you'll regret it in the end. You know the saying "you get what you pay for". There's no cheap way to get around a bigger lift than 3".

    Do not do a body lift! Get this idea out of your head. Now work on finding the right suspension lift. Oh, and just incase: DO NOT GET A BODY LIFT!

    My plan is Billy 5100's & 885 coils with a 3/4" spacer for a full 3" lift....Billy's alone are 2.5"

    Billy 5100's and AAL rear.

    Again.....don't do a body lift.

    Around $600 for the setup.

    COME ON AUGUST!!! lol

    wat?
    tires depends on what u want and what u do....if u wanna stay w/ stock rims and want to get a 285 tire, you'll need wheel spacers or new UCA's to avoid rubbing the stock UCA w/ the tire

    wat?
    rubbing as in the wider tire hitting the UCA. a new rim w/ a smaller backspacing, stock wheels w/ spacers, or new UCA's will fix. spacers and stockers being the cheapest. many people use the spidertrax spacers w/o no issues at all
