    What do you guys think of this lift? Yeah I know it is a spacer lift and the bad wrap that they have... Just read the description at the cite and let me know what you think.

    I think it sounds like a good lift. Regular spacer lifts are decent to imo ya they ride stiffer and are not on the good list on this forum but they are inexpensive and provide room for bigger tires.

    it is mostly for looks and stuff. The only wheeling I will be doing is chasing old Whiley White Tail on logging roads and stuff like that.

    I don't think spacers are bad at all. They are the cheapest way to get the aggressive look on our trucks. However, if you decide that you want to go off roading it might not be such a great idea. Just my two cents!

    Ok.... so if you were going to recommend me something what would you go with? And keep in mind I'm a poor collage kid and would need to have it installed because I don't have any tools and either do any of my amigos.

    what I like about the LRO kit is how the rear blocks have a 3.5 taper to them for drive line angle
