im thinkin 2-4" I like how 4x4s are evened out and i think the lift makes it look tougher. I dont know much about pricing them. Im going more for look, but i dont want something cheap that could just crap out on me if i decide to put it through some stuff

look around on here they have 2in lift kits
http://store.fatbobsgarage.com/share...t=products.asp

a 2in spacer in the front will level it out.. also on ebay they have 2-2.5 taller springs
if your going taller spring or spacer of 2.5in you need atfer maket upper c-arm to keep that aliment,,, and also people like to get longer shocks

also no sure if this is the right link but 3in lift spindle
http://www.airbagit.com/product_p/x2-spi-dod-02.htm

also fabtech makes a 6.5in lift

but the best bang for the buck is 2in spacer or taller spring to level it out then a 3in body lift and tall sping... i would guese that would run about 350bucks maybe

bodylifts= not much it would all come in a kit


suspension= in the front a taller spring and new upper c-arm and shocks or lift spindle with 17in rims or bigger with O.E outset
