    Go to www.toytec.com and follow the links to the 2nd gen lifts. There's a bunch of good ones there. OME. Bilstein 5100's. Toytec Coilovers. Eibach springs. Spacer lifts.

    It comes down to how much money ya got, how much lift ya want, and what your gonna do with ur truck, and how big of tires ya want.

    If u answer some of those questions people can help ya with what would be best for u.

    ok,, probably around a 33" tire. He wants them a little wider cause he likes the tires to stick pass the finder some. as far as money, ofcourse the cheapest way possible,, but dont' want to ruin the ride completly but doesn't mind if it stiffens up some. so what will give me a wider 33" tire that doesn't look like its stuffed under the fender,, thanks.

    oem is factory parts. OME is an aftermarket brand. OME stands for Old Man Emu. They make good quality lifts, but a little more expensive than Bilstien 5100's or Toytec.

    Most people run a 285/75/16 tire with a 3inch lift. That's about a 33.

    Here's the OME lift.
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    This is an adjustable bilstein 5100 lift. Very common and the best lift for your money. U can set it to 2.5 inches max lift.
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    This is the lift I did with the front 5100's set to .85. I got about 2.5 inches of lift. And fit 285's with minor trimming.

    For that wide tire look you'll need a wheel with backspacing of 4.5 or less. You'll want to that anyway to minimize rubbing of tires.

    so you say back spacing 4.5 or less, I've never understood this like i should, even on my wheels.. does that mean, for example, if i was to find a wheel with 3" back spacing the same wheel with stick outside the fender more????

    Yep. And a 0" backspacing wheel would be the mother-of-all-deep-dish .
