    I have 200 to spend!

    I can either get a 2.5" Toytec spacer lift kit with rear aals. ( I dont do extreme off roading and I dont want to save a crap load more for a better lift.)

    Or I can get the supplies needed to paint my stock wheels black and get the tail lights tinted.

    I plan on getting new 33" Duratracs next month.

    Man I have spacers, Honestly deal with the way your truck looks stock until you can afford a quality lift. The ride is bad I have had 2 ball joints go out and quite honestly its not worth how it makes your truck look. Oh and just so you know the money I have spent on repairs I could have bought a badass lift by now.

    Heed his advice so you won't regret it later. Besides, I don't think a 2.5" lift will work for 33" tires. Do the black wheels mod and save up for the right lift.

    You can get front bilstein 5100's, which are a much better option than spacers, for under $200 from downsouthmotorsports.com.
