    a bodylift will be the cheapest.

    He's right. A body lift is the cheapest way to lift a truck two or three inches.

    He said without getting a body lift. The easiest way would be to get new torsion keys and rear lift blocks. New keys will give you 2"-3" and block size depends on what look you want, level or factory rake. Keys can be had from $60 to $230 depending on brand and blocks with U- bolts should be around $100. I chose Pro - Comp torsion keys, I think ypou can get them at stylin' concepts for $219 and I got 3" lift blocks from Fat Bob's Garage for around $100

    Sweet, thanks for the links adampaul. I think im def gonna go with the new keys. What are the pros/cons of add-a-leaf vs blocks?

    Add-a-leaves will stiffen the spring giving a stiffer ride and a little more payload capacity, blocks will just make it sit higher with same ride and capacity.

    Agreed with adampaul, but I would just go with an add-a-leaf over a block. A block causes more axle wrap and does nothing for your payload or anything. An extra leaf will add payload capacity and help support the stock springs while still giving lift.
