    I currently have a 2" spacer lift on my 2011 DCLB 4x4 Sport and after reading on how bad spacer lifts are for off roading I've decided to upgrade. I need some suggestion on a lift along with other suspension related parts that I would need. Not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to off road parts so feedback would be greatly appreciated. Not trying to go over a 3" lift, well I'm looking for a 3" lift. BTW im not going to be doing long travel type off roading, mainly mudding and mountain trails.

    Check out the OME kits. I got all my parts from Wheelers Offroad. If you don't need the full 3" can always just do the Billy 5100s. They'll give you up to 2.5" of lift up front with stock springs.

    The OME 885x set up with the Dakars lifted my DCLB 4x4 2 1/2 " front and 2 3/4" rear .

    Good kit for your price range , although you may need to skip the Daks and go with an AAL to stay inside your alloted money .

    I did OME all around with 884 and got 2" up front, I was just looking to go level which this hit perfectly for me.

    x2. I'd be a little weary about buying used shocks though. Up here, you can tell how old they are by corrosion (salt eats them up) but if you live in an area where the weather is nice most of the time, you can get 40k miles on a set of shocks and they'll still look great.

    If you want to get around 4", spindles would be a good option for you since you have a prerunner. That way you could avoid the hassle of new UCA's to get your alignment within spec.

    I cut some wires here. Added some wires there.
    For that price I'd just go thru DSM for Billys.
