    Best bang for the buck is the fat bobs leveling kit. It has a spacer for the front and longer u bolts with an add a leaf in the rear and longer shocks. U have the option for long or short add a leaf. If he uses the bed of the truck then I'd go short. I got mine shipped for dont quote me but I think it was about 285. I run this with 265/75r16 tires.

    After install with stock wheels

    I haven't gotten around to regearing yet. I still get 19-20 mpg in town and 24 on the highway so not a bad loss. I recently contacted about regearing so that's next on the list.
