    Mid-Travel: A nice pair of icons, kings, or fox coil overs for the front. Thats not going to give you 4 inch of lift though.

    New leaf pack for the back. Check out wheelers off road

    Or the cheaper bilsteins and eibach coils. Still a nice lift

    Stay away from spacers and body lifts

    Go under the suspension thread and start researching for what fits your needs!:thumbsup:

    unless your getting 1200 bucks for this..dream on haha


    Anyways, a mid travel kit would be bad ass but that is like 2-3k.

    Look into blistein 5100s and Eibach coils.
    And Leaf packs, Allpro makes great ones taht a cheaper then Wheelers but wheelers are great too. Dakar and Deaver and Alcan make custom ones as well.

    there are a lot of littler details too, but you have to first decide what your budget is.

    also, 3'' is the max unless you get a DB kit and those aren't recommended for wheeling.

    Look at build!
    If you go over 3" your cv axles will hate you, over 3 needs to be a drop bracket or SAS lift

    ^^What he said. You will kill your CV axles. CVs are what turn your front wheels when you engage 4wd. But if you don't mind trimming/cutting...you can still squeeze 35'' tires on 3'' of lift..

    3in lift,33s
    It's going to be a good bit of trimming and cutting to fit 35s and regear I had to trim to fit 33s with a 3in lift and my next mod is regear
    Also I'm thinking the cheapest lift I would consider putting one my truck is around 600 or 700 $ mine was around 800 so good luck getting one for Christmas
