    Yea should be fine. At 3" with spacers the ride will probably be affected a bit and maybe a bit of axle wrap but for a $100 who can complain. The good thing is it's 2wd so no need to worry about front diff complicating things. You will most likely need some aftermarket upper control arms with caster built in to get your alignment right. It sucks because they run $400+ depending on brand. Trust me, you want to get them or else it'll cause a terrible alignment where it wanders all over the road, bumps jerk the steering wheel, and tires wear out and now you're stuck replacing $800 in tires.

    Besides that, should look good for $100 spacers.

    I had a 2” front 2” rear block kit for 9 years. No problems. I just installed some kings this week and the things that were the biggest differences with blocks were:
    1)cornering at speed was much worse,truck felt floppy
    2)ride is poorer, rougher, little more wandering on highway
    3)no confidence in suspension when off-roading. (Did a number on my factory front “skid”/splash guard when I approached a dune too fast.

    If you are just cruising around town and want to throw some bigger tires under your truck, then blocks are fine. You may have some alignment issues on a 3” lift and stock UCAs. But you also might not.

    My oppinion: you’ll probably be fine
