I don't want to do a bodylift, but I want to keep it cheap and it's a 4x2 so not much wheeling, maybe a little. It's a 3.0L
contact procomp and get the 5" 4 wheel parts offers it i beleave?

Unless i'm looking wrong it was between 800-1800.. I'd rather just got with a 3" if it's going to be that much..

They have a doetsch spindle 3" for $367, what else would I need? Is there a 5" new that price?

a 5" lift will run you about $600+ because it includes coils, ucas, spindles, etc. where as the 3" is only spindles nothing else. if your set on like around 3" lift, id reccomend doing a coil lift with camburg coils and the UCAs from doestch. itll provide the best ride quality for coils, and get you 2.5 inches of lift. camburg coils run about $250, but their the same coils that make their 5.5 performance kit work. as for the back, if you want 5" id just swap in an exploder leaf pack. its arched a lot more since exploders are spring under, that'll give you 4"+ depending on the pack, and a softer ride without losing hauling capability.

ya thats made by doestch, although i would prefer 2" lift coils over the spacers, itll do the trick. just might think about upgrading the shocks and that will help with the ride a lot
