    well i was gona get a spindle lift for my truck, but it kinda seems like it would take a way some performance bcuz of the height, then i would get bigger wheels and tires, and that kills performance. So i was thining about spacers to level out the truck so i could keep my stock wheels and throw some all terrains on there, i kno theres coilovers and stuff but if u crank it up wont the ride be bumpy and ruff. Im confuse on what to do. Maybe i should just keep it stock....no never mind, scrap the whole stock part, lol. i should just brainstorm a lil more b4 i decide what to do.

    Go to Toytec and look into a suspension lift. I got mine for around $500 shipped to my house. I then installed it myself. You will then be able to fit 33's with slight trimming, you could use a razor knife. With my lift and tires I have made up to 19mpg. However I wheel and drive without concern for fuel and thus I don't make the mpg that I can when I drive conservatively.

    New coilovers will ride better than spacers, and spindles will ride same as stock, obviously.

    Spindles are not cheap. What's your budget?

    What do you plan to use your truck for? Off-roading, Street driving?

Custom Projector fog lights, Anytime Fog Mod, HIDS, White LED accent lighting on a Single post double toggle swicht, so they light up wit my door/dome light, or always on, or never on.

    I have like 3k to play with but dunno if I wana spend it all, I think I might get the coilovers with some bigger tires might get a set of wheels too......

    I plan on everyday driving but I also love taking trails and fireroads around the mtns where I live, but no crazy hillclimbs or rockcrawling, so there would be a lot of off roading on the weekends and stuff.
