    I am looking to go up with my truck just 2.5-3 inches and run 32s or 33 A/Ts. I don't want to go with a body lift. Should I go with 2.5 keys and lift shackles, lift spindles and lift shackles, quik lift shocks, or just spend the money on a Skyjacker 3 inch lift kit? I want to put 17 inch GMC wheels with Nitto A/Ts or Cooper Discoverers. Its gonna be a while before I can really buy but when the time comes, I want to be ready.

    If you just want to run 33's you can use a leveling kit and an add-a-leaf in the rear for added height. No need to spend more money on a full lift kit for 33's.

    yes it will add a little but it will help with sag in the back if you every have to puit anything in the pan or you could go with big blocks

    I was able to fit 33" BFG AT's in there with no rubbing just by tightening up the torsion keys...Truck looked good and level and wasn't all that stiff. The tires in my opinion added the stiffness to the ride...Didn't need blocks or an add-a-leaf in the rear. Then I got the lift keys and it added another 3/4 of an inch or so of lift to the front..

    Turning the screws is a quick fix for a more agressive look.

    I have the factory ones turned nearly all the way up. I've been told not to turn them all the way up cuz the ride will suck more.
