    Default Cost/Necessities for a 3-4" lift?

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I'm not sure how everything works but... I am about to turn 16 and I am looking at a 2004 z71 tahoe that I really really like. What all would I need to lift it 3-4" safely, and how big of tires would it clear? Also, could you give me a ballpark estimate on how much all of this is going to cost including installation? I plan on my final product to end up looking something like the black tahoe that is pictured below except it is lifted 6" instead of 3-4".

    Rough Country might be your best bet for an affordable lift for the Tahoe. You would be able to clear 33" tires for sure, comfortably.

    its never gonna be cheap, but if your just looking at about 4 inches check out rancho. 33's would be the best option. if it has 3.73 gears then shouldn't need to do a gear change. so if you can keep it simple as possible, Lift (~$1200), install (~$1000) and 33's and wheels (~$1000). That should at least be a ballpark figure.

    i would say the install is less than 1000. but tires are gonna be at least 300 a piece depending on what tire and size, wheels look to spend maybe another 1000 if not more
