are you going for looks, or are you trying to get performance out of the lift?

if you want performance offroad, that is not the lift you want. that's all for looks.

if it were me id get a body lift honestly lol

but u can do coil spacers in the front and add a leaf spring in the back thatll give u 2 inches all around

or a spindle lift for the front and add a leaf for the back (this is ur best option)

----------

the body lift is the cheapest,

coil spacers and aal is the 2nd cheapest
