    Replaced chrome badges with Sockmonkey black badges, painted billet grill black, K&N cold air intake, my corner light turn signal circuit, Speedfreek traction bars, RAAMaudio BXT/Ensolite, Stereo: Kenwood KIV-701 USB/Bluetooth deck, 10" Pioneer shallow sub behind the rear seat, Infinity 6822cf 6x8 front and rear doors, Fosgate P400-2 (sub), US Acoustics USX-4065 (four main speakers)
    There are several ways to lift the front. I used a Bilstein shock/strut (uses your stock springs) to get a 1" lift (it is a popular option). The front is a bit more firm, but feels more in control and not harsh at all.
    You can also look into spacers, but the Bilsteins are a great option and not too much more money than spacers.

    if you dont wheel and dont matter about ride quality go with a spacer. if you want quality go with the billys up front .

    Camburg Arms, Icon Coilovers, ProComp 9000 rears, Big Foot all-terrains, KNN Intake, Flowmaster,
    coilovers give you a front lift and gives you better offroad performance.

    I recommend camburg or icons

    It all depends on the coin he wants to drop. Billys are a good alt for not alot of money
