you basically can do a superlift on it or get a super expensive camburg kit for it. depends on if you have the funds...

Do your offroading first, have fun, take care of your truck and deal with the limitations. Then you'll have a much better idea of what limitations you actually want to make improvements on.

well if you go body lift you get room for bigger tires, if you go with a super lift you still have a lot of stuff hanging down, i wanted a superlift for mine, but the bang for the buck just wasnt there... i would say body lift throw some bigger meats on there and call it a day.

ya i thought bout that but me being a dumass and not being into my truck at first, i bought new tires which were bigger then the stock. ( went from 29 to 30.5 AT) so they like new and id feel like itd be a watse to buy new bigger tires again. and i feel the tires would look small if i went with the current tires and a lift
