    Well, depending on what you want to do with the lift, you have lots of options. If you don't know much about lifting trucks, just spend some time on this site and you'll learn all you need to know.

    BTW, Welcome!

    Hang out here at TW for awhile and you will go broke modding your truck. This place is a bad influence and addicting.

    Agreed! I thought I was done with big mods for my truck for a while, but now I'm thinking about a bumper, full skids, winch....

    Expensive hobby! :D

    Yea I was just messing with you! But step rails are one of the best options in my opinion, a grill, tints, stereo, and wheels
