Default Lifting

So, I think my truck needs a much more aggressive stance, how big of a lift would I need to make it look badass, with out making it look like a skyscraper? 3"? and how much will this hurt my MPG?

stay with the 16in rim (cant rememeber but im pretty sure your gunna need new rims anyways) To me nothing is as stupid as a 18-up rim on 33s it like running low pro tires if you want rubber bands on a lifted truck so be it just my opinion

x2 on that. basically your best bet is the 3 inch body lift. its about perfect with 33x12.5 especially if your truck stays mostly on road. you can keep your stock rims but id recommend aftermarket just so they look better IMO. They will stick out farther without having to run spacers and the tire with just look and run better and a wider aftermarket rim like 8 inch wide.

EDIT: I just noticed you have a 2wd, if you want to go the cheapiest just run the 3 inch body like we said and it might look alil better to run 32x11.5 on yours just because your 2wd and not quite as high but if you wanna run 33's you could fit em in there.

yeah I meant 12.50 lol though 15.50 will give him the look he wants just a little trim here and there, I wasnt sure if the 1250 would fit the stock rims couldnt remember the stock width.
