    I'm getting new wheel/tires, and am looking into a minor lift to give it a great look. Like anybody else I'm looking into something affordable and safe, around 3'' or less.:D

    If you've done a 3'' or less lift on your truck an love how it looks/handles, can I get a review of what you've got?

    2.5" AutoSpring strut spacers in front, no negative change in the ride up front.
    Firestone airbags in the rear, slightly stiffer ride but I need the adjustability and besides this is a truck.
    I run 285/70/17 Dueler's, only a very very slight tire rub on the upper control arm at full lock, I might change the arms out one of theses days, but I would have to be pretty bored that day.
    Overall I'm very happy with the way it looks, rides and how well the airbags perform.

    Good luck with yours!

    Thanks for the input ya'll, and I know I could spend a day searching the forums for trucks with lifts.

    I like doing other things, and I figured people wouldn't mind bragging on how bad A their build is.

    Appreciate all the advice

    2.5" Spacer on top of coil and TSB rear with 1" block... 265/75/16 tires.

    Ride is very FIRM but handles good. I am NOT a heavy off-road person, beaches and back roads are my playgrounds when I go.
