    other than pro junk stuff like this: http://www.offroadunlimited.com/orustore/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=2034

    i have never really seen anything more than a 3 inch lift thats worth a crap. and of course the 6 inch drop brackets but that expensive, and not to much flex from what i have heard. if it was me personally i would get a good CO and leaf pack 3 inch lift and then get a body lift to match what ever tires i wanted.

    uhh every body hating. some of the sickest rigs i have ever seen have body lifts on them. if you do it right there not that bad. but yes if you can avoid them then its a good idea.

    actually if everyone wants to bash a bodylift..... suspension lifts on ifs trucks are a lot worse than bodylifts. they make more extreme angles on your cv axles, driveshaft, and ball joints. Love my bodylift along with my suspension lift.just my two cents.

    the $ difference between 3 and 4 is HUGE, for 4 inches you'll need a drop down bracket, which is over a grand, plus coilovers and lifting the rear, you can do a moderate lift that will be just as, if not more competent offroad for under $600, add some sliders and you'll be better off.
