I'm thinking about putting at least a 4"-6" lift on my 03 supercrew and I'm hoping you guys can give me some help and some tips on them. I'm looking for some thing inexpensive.

I also am looking for some options that would allow me to keep the stock rims because I like the way they look with the truck.

Any help would be appreciated.

What size tires do you want to run?

If you want inexpensive and the ability to run stock wheels then I would go with a 3" body lift. I don't believe the factory wheels will work with any of the suspension lifts for our trucks.

I'm running 33's on mine with only the torsions turned up, don't even need a lift kit for that.

I have always heard that cranking the torsion bars is bad for the front end. Have you ever had any problems to come up from that?
