    02' stock leaves need to go. I don't mind a bit of lift and would prefer something more towards mild off-roading spec (and potentially small trailer/camper. Airbags?) without breaking the bank.

    Also concerned about replacing them at home as I am unexperienced but can't quite afford to take it to a shop. Should I go ahead and replace shocks while I've got the wheels off?

    I'm in the process of replacing my suspension as well. I went with the Dakars and Fox 2.0 shocks in the rear and kings up front.

    You will need longer shocks if you lift. If you dont always carry heavy weight I suggest the all pro off road springs. They flex nicely and will ride well.

    Hit up wheelers, give them a call and he will help you out.
