    Not tryin to be an ass but lt would be in the 100 dollar range. Oh wait add two 0's to the end of that....

    My suggestions would be a complete old man emu set up. Do a quick search and you'll find what you need. If you have any questions about that set up in particular ask back here and we'll be sure to answer your questions.

    So it's worth the little extra money for the elbachs, and yeah I dont want to deal with those problems either, and keep the back stock? Or do something there to

    I've seen Eibach Adjustable C/Os with Bilstein Shocks.

    And Wolfpack has just the Springs

    FWIW, I'm running OME 885s with 5100s all around, a 2" Toytec AAL and Light Racing UCAs. You'd need new UCAs for this lift which would put you in a over 800 bucks

    I love the ride on and off road! And your gonna be WAAAY high up front if you don't do something with the rear. You only need aftermarket UCAs if you go higher than 2.5"

    If you like the look of the long travel's fenders, then just get the fenders and a $400 lift, and wheels with a negative offset to give you that wider stance. I mean its a little gay to have long travel fenders without long travel, but if you like that look, it's your truck, go for it
