Welcome to the Club!!!

Usually a body lift costs less, but as mentioned above, what are your plans with your truck?

Welcome to the club! Like others have said, giving us a better idea of what you want to do with your truck will be helpful when it comes to suggestions. As mentioned, body lifts are certainly cheaper than suspension lifts but there is debate regarding the aesthetics of the end product. Leveling kits are a good way to go but I wouldn't necessarily classify it as a lift. In case you're unfamiliar with them, leveling kits are spacers that lift the front end of your truck up to about 2.5" which levels it out with rear (thus eliminating the factory 'rake' of the front end). It should allow you to install larger tires which will also make your truck look a little taller and more aggressive. It's a good, cheap compromise to a lift kit especially if you don't need the extra ground clearance provided by a full suspension lift.
