    Not sure 100% about first gens but I've never heard any body who was really happy with a spacer lift. Most of the guys I know that had them sooner or later upgraded to something else.

    x2 on that one you could always put it on if you get tires at the same time and upgrade later, but thats only if your going all out with the suspension and need alot of time to save up. btw you can run 33's with some trimmin. I run bilstein 5100s and ome springs with an aal but honestly id get a new leaf pack if yours is shot. any questions about my susp. set up send me a pm. and welcome to tw :)

    Thanks for the help. The reason for that lift is the price. Im not exactly made of money. but that seemed like a good price. Do yall think its good for the price? Do yall know of any other 3inch lifts for a good price? Im not big on body lift but if i have to i would put a 2inch and no more. Any thoughts on body lift too?

    If you're not worried about trimming then, don't put on a lift. Trim and tub!

    But seriously, invest in some adjustable bilstien shocks and AAL if you dont plan on heavy off roading. With that combo I would run 32x10.5. Don't be so quik to spend your money, save and buy right the first time.

    I pretty much just stick to muddin. I dont rock crawl or go in snow or anything. dont get too much of that snow in SC haha. How much do you think those bilstien adjustables cost me? Also im lookin at the Super Swamper TSL radials. Either 33 10.50 or the 32 10.50.

    Swampers are awesome. Search for the shocks dude, no offense but we cant do all the work for ya. If you get AAL and the adj. shocks go with 32's.

    Adj shocks only give 2.5 lift. So rubbing will be an issue. I have 33's with a full 3" lift with a 1" body lift and I still rub at full lock. Just go with a 10.5 width tire and no rubbing with happen with the 32's. I mean you can fit 33's, a little trimming may be need and the pinch weld needs to be beaten.

    This is my lastest one. I've been busy so just a parking lot pic at the moment. This is before the coilovers, still had the 2.5 spacer the previous owner put in.
