Another favorite 'copy & paste' response of mine.

Since you are 4WD - you only have the following general options when it comes to lifting your truck:
  1. 1"-2" Torsion Bar Crank = Cost is only an alignment.
  2. 2" Leveling Kit (AKA - Torsion Keys) = Waste of money, same as a torsion bar crank - see option #1 above.
  3. 3" Body Lift (Performance Accessories or Summit Brand) = +/- $200 + Install
  4. 4" Superlift = +/- $2,000 + Install
  5. Custom SAS = "Let your imagination take control of your wallet"
Pick your poison.

If you don't think the torsion bar crank will get you where you want to be & don't want to spend the $$$ for a Superlift - then slap on a body lift with larger tires & call it day - that's what the majority do.

Rear is the simple part....shackles, AAL or new leaf springs are the "popular" choices.
