Mild lift question....

It seems most of us on here go big or go home in terms of lifts. I searched around but didnt find what I was looking for.

I am actually interested in lifting the front 2 inches max and the rear one inch. Its an 03 so it does have leaf springs.

Any suggestions on what I should go with? Any suggestions are welcome.....cheap, expensive and in between......I dont want it sky high I just want a more aggressive look.

thanks
Thad

I did a rough country 3" suspension lift. I spent about $400.00 which i thought was relatively cheap. The only problem i had was my brake lines are stretched to the limit.

Yeah, the only problem is that mine is an 03 so the lift options are different.

I guess I'll have to go with a leveling kit up front and then a block or AAL for the back.....

Does anyone have experience with an add a leaf for the rear? Dont hink I will do that unless someone else has had good experience. Seems it would make the ride harsher than it already is.....

I looked at Top Gun Customs and it look like they have tons of options for these rigs.

What do you guys think of Add a leafs for the front and rear? Is my rig going to knock my teeth out?
