    ^ What he said could always start with a leveling kit and she how you like it and if you want higher go with a lift.

    both have their good and bad... A leveling kit does the job but changes the geometry quite abit and sometimes requires shock mount and/or bump stop removal or modification. A lift would maintain factory geometry better but requires lowering of the transfer case and cutting of the frame.... and some kits require modifications to the cooling fins on the transfer case. As you can tell I have been looking into this for quite some time... right now I am currently leaning toward an Upper Control Arm upgrade and shock combination. This will give me additional travel, a nicer ride along with the same end result as installing a leveling kit. Supposedly all are pretty much bolt in replacements. Now all I have to do is save the $$$$... looks like a next summer project..

    If you do decide to go with a leveling kit make sure the torsion keys are forged and not cast. They keys are under a tremendous amout of force, and a cast key can fail under those forces. The forged keys are a little more expensive, but are worth the peace of mind.
