I was a college kid on a limited budget when I first bought my truck. It stayed completely stock until after college.

Nah don't listen to these old farts, kid. You wanna lift your truck for under 300 and aren't worried about ruining your truck? Do it. You're probably not gonna get any help from these forums though. Back when I was a dumb kid, I lifted my front end with a pair of lift springs. Never got an alignment or nothing. Drove just fine.
