Need upgrades, tires, lift, etc..

Ok, so its that time of the year when I'm wanting to upgrade my setup. Currently running stock everything pretty much. Have broken past my 34000 mi warranty and its just sitting there this past year, because currently I'm in Iraq... will be home soon though hopefully. But heres what I'm wanting to do.

I'm looking to run a 6in lift with 37in Nitto Trail Grapplers and either 20 or 18in Jesse James Blackwidow rims.. now I'm trying to find my best deal really.. Used to see the rims cheap but they're getting harder to find. And the tires seem to run a bit high but I know that they just came out last year. So I need some options on a Lift though as well.. Basicly what I'm looking to do is not break 5g's... I want the rims, tires, lift, and possibly if I can fit it in a Spartan tuner and exhaust and Intake kit.. lol... So anyone help me out? What are some good options for lift? Any military friendly dealers for parts? Or whats my best option really? Thanks in advance. Hopefully its not too compacted in a paragraph..

Guess there aren't many options then?? And on the rims.. not sure, havent really heard much of anything about them.. bad or good, so.. if anyone else has experience with them, I'd like to hear it. Maybe it was just the chopper rims? or who knows... but guess i gotta do a lot of book work and searching myself while over here....

If you go with a less expensive rim, like arond $200, and the Nittos, which are around $350, your looking at $2200 minimum. Plus lugs and install.
You could possibly get a lift and install it your self and keep it below your $5000 limit.
Your best bet may be getting a used set of wheels and tires and putting the money towards the lift and install. Saving some moneyon the rims and tires may leave you some scratch for a tuner. But I doubt you'll have enough for a Spartan, they're the most expensive. I would scour the for sale threads for some deals.
Good luck.

Let me see what kind of package price we can put together on what you are looking for as far as suspension, tires and wheels
