    Here you go...Amazon has a Rancho 4" kit for $1210.85 w/free shipping. Also, keep in mind that you can sell your leveling kit and front differential skid plate (as you won't be using those items with this kit), so I would apply the used value of them to your budget.

    When it comes to lift kits, I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". You have a lot of money invested in your truck just in the cost of the truck alone, why would you look for the cheapest kit possible. Save your money, wait a little longer and get a good quality kit with a good warranty with the height you want.

    I have the RC 5" lift and you cannot run 35's unless you are strictly staying on pavement(posing). The shop that did my lift put 35's on and I had to add more lift so I did not rub at every turn on uneven ground let alone while offroad.
    A man must believe in something...I beliveve I'll have another!
