    Dude seriously? Is my '04 5-lug that friggin worthless? I was really hoping to get a LT look/effect without having to drop that much $$$. So since that seems to be out of the question. Whats going to give my truck a higher lift in the front without damaging my drive? I got a 160 mile daily drive and dont want anything that'll kill the drive.:confused:

    larger tires that don't require a lift is what i would suggest with out compromising the ride, to achieve a slight lift, and not cost a bunch of $$$

    Yea I went 235/75/15 already was looking to do something more than that. I had heard specific coils would and spacers would compromise the ride, which is what I was more talking about.

    Part of the beast, lift it up, ride gets stiffer.

    Guys have been replacing their struts/shocks with the bilstein pre-runner stuff to help, at least with the spacers.

    Forget the spacer lift man. Buy a set of hubcentric spidertrax and poke the wheels out a little, that should give you the look you want, you don't need a lift.

    Are you serious? You want a LT look without actually having LT? Why? Do you actually off road it?
