    I use my truck for work, driving clients around, so I need to keep it "professional." However, I would like to lift it slightly.

    Are there any options that allow me to have an adjustable lift? I have a second set of wheels and tires so I could have my "fun" set-up and my "professional" set-up.

    I do have airbags in the rear for leveling the load, Firestone RideRite

    Thanks.

    Adjustable coilovers, such as Demello, SAW, or King are the easiest. Bilstein 5100s may also work.

    Uh, adjusting your suspension height via adjustable coilovers will throw your alignment out after every adjustment. Be prepared for that.

    Otherwise, you'd need an pneumatic height-adjustable suspension, a lot like what the new Grand Cherokee has.

    What's unprofessional about a truck with suspension lift? The people you're driving around are really that shallow?

    Do the 5100's and similar need to be removed and re-installed each time they are adjusted?

    Thanks for the replies.

    The unprofessional thing is lame. Yes, many of the people are shallow...
    but it pays the bills and gives me time with my son.
