    I've been all over the place in this forum trying to find answers about lifting my RW. Needless to say, my head is spinning! Can I get opinions on which lift is better (or worse), what height looks\works the best, which one retains a comfortable ride, and does every6"+ lift require cutting the frame? I know this is a lot but I want to get it right the first time. I really don't want to spend more than 3k on a 6-7" lift.

    Most of my driving on on the streets to\from work and occasionally off-road. I don't want to build it for any serious hard core wheeling, mainly just trail riding the back country here in AZ. If a smaller lift, like ReadyLift 4" front\ 2" rear, will do me better I'm up for it too.

    BOSS lift is great. A 3/1 wouldn't necessarily need a new UCA so that'd cut the price down a bit

    I spoke with someone who recommended a Skyjacker lift kit. I'm looking to get a 3" lift which would leave enough room to get a set of 20x9 with 33's +18 offset without having to modify. Lemme know what you think?

    I'd get 34's with 20" wheels. Less than that and it just looks weird IMO.

    As far as I know, all lifts over 4" require cutting the cross member except Bullet Proof 10-12" lifts.
    I'm not 100% sure but I think you can run a taller tire. I don't know what my lift height will end up being, 3.5 - 4 I think and I've ordered a 295 70 18.
