I agree with Raul....7" stacks are real pricey....I would go with 6" stacks and a nice 33" wheel and tire combo and save the rest

I would level the truck out put some nice rims and tires (like some 35's) and then do 6" stacks

-- you'll still have more than half that or about half left over after doing this and it will look great!

then once you save another 2K -- you can lift that sucker and upgrade more!
