    I just went in to see my options for getting a 3 inch lift on my truck. The guy told me my cheapest option would b a leveling kit (which is what I planned on getting). But he told me it would be 680. Isn't that pretty high?

    Also I asked him about all terrain tires and his price was almost 1300 for some nittos ( he didn't specify the model but I'm guessing terra grapplers). I feel like that's a ridiculous price too.

    Let me know if I'm right, or imagining things.

    680 is right in the ballpark for an installed leveling kit. 1300 for the tires is not, if they are in fact terra grapplers.

    the "leveling kit" itsself (a set of spacers) can be had for about $75. install shouldn't be much either since it's not more than a 2 hour job. the tire price is way high too. it'll vary with size of course, but i got my nittos for just under $600 (set of 4)

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Holy crap I would never pay that for a spacer lift. If you get a over the shock spacer you can install it yourself in about a half hour. But I'm not recommending spacers. You could probably get 5100's installed for less then 600 at a shop.
