    get bilstein 5100's and lift the front 2.5'' leave the back stock, get wheel spacers for the front, anddd a tube bumper would get you the look you are wanting I'd imagine...

    $1000+ for glass installed
    $1000 for spindles
    $300 for spacers
    $1500 king coilovers and rear shocks
    $800 front bumper
    $2000 tires and rims

    That should get you a long travel look without any longtravel function.

    It still wont be cheap OP unless you find everything used, probably still around $1500-$2000 if you count bigger tires, glass and bumper alone. Then spacers and most likely new wheels too.

    Yeah I was looking at 5100s. Do you have to have a spacer in addition to the shock for a 2.5

    spacers lifts are no good bud and can be detrimental to the suspension so stay away from those...
