Lift or Level?

Well I'm in a dilemma...I want to lift my new truck 6" like my last one...but buying tires on top of a lift is damn expensive...and I don't deploy anymore since I'm an instructor...so I don't have an extra stash of cash layin around. If I did what I WANT...I'd sell my 4wheeler (which I love and is the one toy I have) and buy a lift and tires. But then I wouldn't be able to go out ridin with friends.

The alternative...is to put a leveling kit on it for now and run it with my stock rims and tires. What do yall think? Level it as a temp thing, or just sacrifice the quad and do the 6" lift and be done with it? Help!!!

Same boat here man. I can't drop all that cash at once. You could buy the tires one at a time, then buy the wheels. Just move slow with it you know?

I was in the same boat...but it was a jet ski and I was already leveled. The last two years the ski sat in the garage, so it was an easy decision for me. Still haven't got the lift yet, but working on it.

IMO a level kit still needs tires... just save a little longer and get the lift and tires, run the stock wheels. If your stock wheels are 17 or 18 your tires are that much more affordable... compared to 20s.
