taller spindles are not that expensive
2WD truck owners should think long and hard before passing on them for a body lift kit to just raise their bed and cab

4WD trucks do not have the same advantage as a cheap spindle suspension lift
for some reason the price for a 4WD spindle lift is much more money
athough I was previously a big fan of the super lift (easy install, no welding, etc...) I am going to save up for an RCD kit
the lure of coil over bilsteins is too great and I do not like the way the torsions need a drop bracket to keep the original suspension geometry
that is what I am looking to get away from with a suspension LIFT.....

Im with you, Body Lifts may look cool at a distance, just dont hope to win any "best of show" awards if you know what I mean. The gaps are FUGLY. IMO I would rather buy spindles, and aaf's, or say fukc it and buy a lift kit. That's right, save up money, and buy the best thing that one can do to his/her truck.

And Neil im with you on the RCD thing, I just bought some Bilstein's, but they WILL take a back seat to the coilovers. The reason I think 4x4 lifts are so much is the way the front suspension is built and laid out. Everything has to be heavy duty on the front ends. Just my idea, but RCD kit is the king/god/(Insert High ranking thing/person here) of all lift kits, and they make a 6" lift kit for our 2x4 brothers. One of the best things is with the RCD lift kit you can throw out the Torsion bars. YAY (^_^)

Don't the kits come with things to raise the front bumper too? What exactly would I need for my setup, can someone list me a good brand that's fairly cheap please? It looks like I need the stick extender or whatever since I have a manual tranny. Also if I took it over to my friend's body and repair shop could it be done pretty easy by me and him?

Yes, with slight cutting mod. If you missed it, I can sell you mine, a Performance Accessories body lift, considered the best, and which 95% of people have. I'm down in Juneau and I think I can ship it up there for hella cheap. I bought mine back when it was $150, i dunno how much they sell for now.

Yea I might look into yours, but not for a little while. I have $2,000 I owe my parents and don't know how much personal cash I'll have or what it will go to in the near future.
