    Welcome from PA
    Depends on what your willing to spend... I just bought a new house so didn't have a lot to spend so.
    I got the 3 1/2 Rough Country lift ($1000)so far i have no problems with it.

    Welcome top left click forums entire sections on what you are looking for. Most will go coil over lift with bilstein,fox, and kings up front. 295 70 18 +25 offset. Good luck

    You could do that most do not like spacer lift or blocks as they are rough riding. I have bilstein 6112 set at 1.9 perch and shackles in rear for 1.75 lift. 20201108_115758.jpg

    Ok so coil overs would be a better option if lifting . but if one was to just level the truck guessing then they no choice but to use spacers ??

    Official welcome for your first post.. Lots of options for what type lift, wheels and tires applications. Budget too.
    Take a research under the Garage section of the forum to see other members pros and cons about their lift.. I'm a big fan of Toytec Coilovers complete lift and I used JBA's UCA to dial in my alignment... No issues at all and drives better than stock.
    Again, pay once, cry once for a solid setup... Good luck.

    Preference you can find some bilstein 5100 for same ball park and have options on what lift height. Uca are not necessarily needed i am only 1.9 and at full droop minor contact on the springs not enough to pull trigger on uca

    Kanobi13 said spacers make your truck ride rough and wear parts out quicker, and UCA no you don't need them but them make a big difference..

    toyofan87 said it,, if you have the funds spend once.
    Read threw the forums first tons of great info
