Hidey-ho, neighbor and welcome to TTORA!
Best advice that I can give is to use the Newbie Tech Threads and Search button BEFORE you post a question. Because, most likely the question has been answered before. It took a long time of searching and reading many of the opinions, and technical info, before ordering my suspension stuff
The biggest advice that anyone could give to a person looking to do a lift is to ask these simple questions.
1) How much are you willing to spend
2) What type of off roading are you going to do
3) What type of driver are you
4) Is your truck a DD or trailer rig
5) Do you plan to haul stuff and how much
6) Did your wife/gf approve the purchase

I will state this, I too thought of going the low cost way of AAL, spacers and shocks...but after really thinking of it and what I want to do with the truck - I held off on the purchase to save up the money necessary to do my truck right. I am one of the guys that hate to do things more than once. If it takes a little inconvenience for a little bit of time to get real capable stuff - - it is worth it for me for that pain of waiting.

That should be it...but to read, learn, listen and if possible, ride with some guys that have different systems to see how they like it and how it handles.
