    Wondering what the cheapest way to add a little bit of lift (2-4 in.). Just want my truck to look a little bigger.

    For leveling kit, go with the rough country kit. You can get a full leveling kit for $189 with shocks, keys, and an add a leaf in the back, i recommend that! Well, for my 2002 it was. I don't know about yours for sure.

    I recommend the Pro Comp torsion keys just because that's what I used, although I don't think there is any difference in the many brands that are available. I see your truck is the same generation as mine and it is a Z71 so I would expect your results to be similar to mine. The reason that some people don't get as much lift is due to the many different spring rates of the torsion bars that Chevy used. I used blocks for the rear because add-a-leaves stiffen the ride too much and my truck is a "family" vehicle.

    I would say do this as well.

    And stay away from ProComp tires. They suck!!!

    Look into the Cooper Discoverer STT tire. cheaper than most mud terrains and are a great tire.
