Try 4wheelparts.com, jcwhitney.com for parts. Those are websites that have given me the best customer service.

Thanks fellas! Yeah I was thinking the same. Also might get Black rings instead of the red rings.

I would say both I guess? I don't know anything about this stuff haha I want to get the best lift I can get. Would it be better to go with a suspension or body, or both?

Body lifts are cheaper, usually $200 give or take. All they do is lift your body. Your frame and other things stay stock height. And they come with front bumper adapter and shifter extensions if you have a manual. Along with maybe a few other little things. Most kits don't come with rear bumper assorted so you will wined up having a gap like mine. But I put diamond plated sheet metal.

I'm not not knowledgeable on suspension lifts, on what you'll need ect. If I'm right it's just putting longer shocks on to raise the truck. They
are expensive though. For a 6in. It's around $1300

I had both on my truck and IMO it looks great.

Well then maybe a 4 inch suspension or something. I really don't know what I want to get, I just want to lift it. What would make the most sense.

Honestly, if your willing or have the money to do both then I would. If your looking for cheap go with a body. You can always get a suspension added. Or vise-versa get a suspension now and add a body later.

If you are wanting to put tires or something on that you will need clearance then go for the bigger lift between body and suspension.

I also recommend a leveling kit if you don't already have one.

To start I say you just get lift spindles they are the easiest way to get some inches and clear big tires
