how much rubbing are you willing to put up with and how much trimming and BFH (Big f-ing Hammer) mods are you willing to do?Peanut Butter said:I want to get enough lift to fit some 33x12.5 muds. I planned on 3-5", but I'm new to the truck scene, and don't know enough about lifts. What all will I need? Are some kits "more complete" than others? I've been told to lift the minimum amount to clear the tires, and this makes sense to me. I don't understand the difference between the $400 complete kits, and the $1400 kits 4wheelparts wants to sell me. I would love detailed opinions on what works best for around (or under) $1000. Whatever you can spare!
My truck stats are below. This is my daily driver, and weekend toy. I drive mostly trails, some mud and snow, with some dabbling in rocks. I don't flex a ton, but want moderate articulation and flex possible.
I appreciate your comments and opinions.
2-2.5" spacer lift/AAL or shackle and 2" body lift are about your only options for that budget.
since you have 16" wheels your tires will be 285/75/16s (33x11.4) unless you plan on swapping rims as well. You can do this with OE rims with 1/4" wheel spacers to save some $.
