    A little bit of both, I haven't been into the scene all that long so I'm not totally ready to get the best products yet

    I was thinking somewhere around 2000 but not sure if that's a realistic price or not

    I have a spacer lift and it's the worst money I've spent on my truck.
    I HATE it. And hate is a very strong word.
    I have had the spacers for like 2 or 3 months now and I'm buying Coil overs this weekend.
    Even if you plan on doing minimal off road, or if you just drive on the street all day, the ride quality is just horrific.
    You can feel every single bump in the road and on the dirt.
    It's bad.

    You can get yourself a set of toytec coil overs (600-700)
    Add a leaf in the rear for like 150?
    That's 750$ - 850$ - 900$
    that leaves you about 1100 for some rims/tires.
    If you go used you can get some for even less than that.
    If you go new, save up a couple hundred more.
    You won't regret it.
    Take it from someone who did it the wrong way the first time.

    Good luck!

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    if in so cal and you want to wheel that thing, your likely option is going to be desert wheeling....

    do it right and get into long travel and have some fun with it...
