    Um the kit that i think your talkin about, you DO need the box to lift it 6", if im correct the fabtechs dont come with a C/O so the box is the only thing that lifts the front. :eek: im not saying you shouldnt get it but if you plan on offroading it wouldnt be the best choice :D

    6" of lift is ALOT and not really neciscary, i think you would be fine with a good 3" lift with some 33x11.5 or 12.5 tires :)

    The first option would do if you just want the look, just dont do any offroading cuz you can mess up your CVs,differentials, etc...
