    no way your looking at prolly a max of $100 if you can try and find someone who has experience with lifted trucks, there might be a 4x4 specialty place somewhere near you i dont know

    well first of all yes that is what my lift is, and i would say with your dad haveing some knoledge its pretty self explanitory if you follow the directions. ill always be on here so if you get stuck you can always shot my a post or something, the only thing thats hard is cutting the old rivits that hold the brackets on, i would invest in a good grinder or torch set for this. other than that and taking in for an alignment once its done you should be all good

    well mine are 33/10.5/15 im not exactly sure what that would be in metric size but i do know that the 265/75/15 is about the same as the 31 its just a little bit smaller. i think once you et past that they really dont offer them in metric sizes unless you get like 20 in rims. lol

    yea then i would say you want to start with the engine, i dont know what your budget is, but first thing i would do is spend about $120 on msd cap and rotar, 8.5 wires, copper core plugs, and msd coil. Gap the plugs to .06 Then once you have all of it installed drive for a week make sure therres no problems, then bump the base timing up to 14-15 BTDC. other mods that are a little more costly are like i said get some headers and free up the exhaust, I have done all this and with the 33's and stock gears in the rear end get about 15 mpg

    I would say do the body lift and see how it looks first, and then we can go from there. Just keep in mind a body lift can get difficult real fast, not to shot you down or anything i like to see people get involved and learn how to wrench on cars, i myself am only 20 years old. but remember when doing a body lift you most likely going to encounter some rust so be prepared to deal with the rust this might include some welding and patching. i dont know how bad of shape your truck is in so i cant tell you how bad its going to be. i would actually tell you to start with doing some simple engine mods to get your truck ready for the lift first, like the timeing bump and some msd igniton products, look into exhaust and free up some horse power while its still easy to work under the hood

    yes it is a susension lift, it comes with new coils, rear blocks and hardware including drop brackets, i got mine off jcwhitney for $180 shipped, for me it was pretty easy. I have a lift in my garage though so if you dont have much experience i would say you might want to think about a differnt route, not saying you cant do it but it does take some time, again i dont know your experience level, if you would like you can go to rough countries web site and look at the instructions it takes a little bit of grinding and aligning to get things right jsut to let you know

    its actually a 2.5 in lift from rough country with another .5 spacer up front to level it out, i have bfg km2's 33's and thats about all i have for a lift, i was thinking about doing a 2in body lift to make it a little higher but im not sure because i dont want the tires to look to small and as of right now im still getting 15 mpg but i have a few engine mods done also, if you got any other questions let me know
