suspension is alot of money, body lifts cost about 200.00 if you do it yourself. I like the double lift, but it is costly. Start with the 3 inch body lift and go from there

If you take a look at mine I have both...3 inch body lift and a 6 inch suspension lift with 35x12.50's tires with lots of room..
