    Thanks smg for the compliment!

    It really boils down to how you want to use your rig:

    Spacer systems; cheapest way to go to obtain a bit more attitude and fit "slightly" larger tires/wheels with minimal timming. You do notice some degradation of ride quality due to limited wheel travel. Horrible decision if you off-road to any degree.

    Full suspension; great way to obtain significantly more aggressive stance with larger tires/wheels. Very good low speed off-roading due to added clearance but not so much for high speed off-roading. With the right shocks, you can dial in very compliant ride/control. Horrible decision if you value responsive/higher speed handling.

    Coil-over systems; best of both worlds with significantly improved low/high speed off-road performance, improved street performance, and enough height for more aggressive stance over factory. Downside is less overall height increase and can be significantly more expensive than the usual suspension systems.
