    I was wondering if anyone knew about what is the cheapest way to lift your truck 2-3 inches other than a body lift. Need help? Thanks

    Uh, spacers are cheapest. They also happen to be shit. There's a reason for that.

    For a 96?--My 91 had Rancillio shocks-AND 3" body lift(6" or more lift)==shocks are easiest-IMO
    2003->3" lift-AAL rear-and bilsteins all around--Ride IMPROVED 100%-TOTALLY SATISFIED
    Can send a pic of the 91-Pm me your email--GREAT TRUCK-just sold it last month.
    Missed it before it left the drive way--BUT too many autos--one had to go
