    Plenty. Will it be mainly on road or off? Towing?

    What size tires are you looking to run? 35x12.50?
    Amount of lift? 3" or so?

    Ok, so on the budget end I'd say something like Bilstein 5100's and a small top spacer to get up to a total of 3" lift in the front, depending on your preferences with the stance you then consider rear lift amount. Most guys like to level the truck a bit and only run an inch or inch and a half of lift in the back. Shackles can get this for you, as can new U bolts and a small block. Depending on rear lift height and front shock choice you'll need to consider matching rears.
    If you wanted to go a little nicer in the front, I'd say some adjustable Toytech coilovers, and then nicer yet would be quality coilovers like King's but you're pushing about $2000 in front/rear Kings. They're sure nice though!

    As for wheels, I personally recommend a 18x9 with a slight positive offset. My wheels are a +18mm offset, about perfect in my opinion for a good filled fender look, but also maximizing clearance for the tires. Too negative of offset will increase the scrub radius when steering and cause rubbing the front and back of the front fenderwells.
    If you go full 35x12.50x18 then you would want to consider a Cab mount chop job for extra clearance (we sell a plate for this. Cut and weld it in and you're golden) or if you go slightly smaller in tire and stick to a 295/70R18 (what I also personally run) then no chop is needed.
    My next set of tire's I'll be upsizing to the true 35x12.50's.
