Default help me decide guys

I am selling some rims and I am looking at around 350 to 400 and I can't decide if I should get a 2 inch body lift and maybe some other miner attachments..or spend all of the money on a full out grill guard..I would get a bull bar but looks kinda dumb sometimes..they don't come up high enough for me...what would you do?

They only make a 3 inch body lift for your truck and if you want to get a brushguard after the body lift then you're gonna have to modify the mounts to lift it up 3inches as well

they made 2" body lifts for the 97 and older. And you have to cut then down to remove 3" of the metal to lift the guard up. The guard mounts to the frame

Crank your torsion bars and get lift shackles for the rear (cost would be alignment and shackles, no more than 120$). That should give you your two inches. And then get your brush guard.

You can get 1" shackles to at least level it out.
