    Depends on how much you want to spend. Do you want appearance or performance or both? There are some really good spacer type lifts on the market that go for about 360.00 or you could go for a coil over package with UCA's and AAL's and shocks with remote cylinders in the back. That can run you 2500.00 or better depending on the direction you want to take your truck and your bank account.

    Dutch,

    i was looking not to spend over a g on a lift kift. I want appearance with performance. The coilovers would be too much.

    I think the toytec lifts are the most popular here. Go with the 3" front coil/rear AAL's. It will give you the look you want and the performance, for a deasent price, and there aren't many Cons with that lift. It will stiffen the ride a bit, and I know of some people who have had there AAL's break. But the upside to them is that they can increase loud compasity. Just dont do the Spacer lift. Though its the cheapest way, you wont be pleased. I got the Revtech spacer lift, and I dont like it at all. Im ganna soon change it to the Toytec. The most commen Brands-(Revtech, Toytec, Fabtech, ProComp, SkyJacker) Hope this helps ya...

    The Donahoe front CO is 1150.00 and sometimes you can catch it a little cheaper. You can add the AAL's for little more. If you can wait, put your money here. I had the Revtek 3" and it was OK, but nowhere near the Hoe's. I kept the Revtek rear spacers on as I had to install traction bars and they would not work without them.

    I guess it's all in what you want to spend.

    The sway a way shocks run under a grand and are good shocks. All Pro Offroad has a walker evan's shock, but i have heard mixed feelings on them. Coilovers and All Pro's UCA's for 1100. I would save my money and get the coilovers. Its like night and day over a spacer lift.
