Default Trying to decide?

Trying to decide whether I should drop the cash on a lift so can someone photoshop my truck with a 3" lift? Thanks!



Ps would prefer a little bit of Cali lean

It will look like stock, but obviously will be taller. The tires just won't look as big

If I do I'm going to go with spindles and blocks or shackles

I'd do a body lift. It will keep your ride quality rather than make it worse

Body lift is out of the question because I'm eventually going to a 5.5 kit. And spindles and blocks don't take away ride quality

And if someone would mind photoshopping still :P

Get blocks and shackle so you can go with deavers in the back with your 5.5 kit in the front

If you're eventually doing more, just crank your t-bars (coil spacers if you're coiled) and add-a-leaf rear. That'll get you along til your big lift.

That is true but that takes away ride quality, and spindles are a part of a 5.5 kit. Trust me guys I've done all of my research as to what kind of lift I need/want so that's why I wanted a photoshopped pic of it lifted
