    I'm getting a 3-inch Revtek lift and some 33 inch tires. I can afford about a thousand more and was wondering what I should invest in. I'm interested in off-roading. Mahalo!

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    If you're offroading, you may want to consider other options besides Revtek.

    I remember a picture chris4x4 posted with a very good example of what could happen while offroading with spacers. I'll try and find it.

    Get some bilstein 5100's for the front and rear, and an AAL. Plus, spend the extra $$ to buy some new UCA's.

    No no no no...like others have said, stay away from spacers if your going to off road or not. They make for a harsh ride, and who wants that in a newer truck?

    How about this: $309.99

    With a set of these front and back: $324

    That would still leave you with enough money for some good tires and a good platform to build off of later, just an idea.
