Get a bodylift, cost about $200 from 4wheelparts. There is only one brand of bodylift and it is a 3" bodylift by Performance Accessories.

summitracing.com offers the lift for about $155 and free shipping. You will also need a shifter extension though and thats about $35 unless you feel like reaching 3 inches lower to shift. that's what I did, but I just happen to have pretty long arms, so it doesn't really bother me.

ok well as u all know i got a body lift the other day and i was goin to put it on myself well now my truck sits cause i have no help or no way to bend a/c lines........ well the truck is almost done but there is no use to finish it since i cant bend the lines. well i like how it looks but it just sucks i am just so down right cause i finally got money saved up to do something i finally wanted to do to my truck and now it has to set cause i dont have the tools or know how to finish it.....well hopefully u guys have suggestions on how to fix this delimna but right now i am lookin at about 700 to finish the truck.... and i know this might make me sound like a cry baby or a wuss but i dont care but i am actually crying cause not only am i giving up on something for the first time in my life but i am also with out a truck and no freinds to give me a ride anywhere so i just stuck at home for about a week now and everyone is pissed at me for doing this

Just bend the A/c lines by hand. Just be careful and make a large radius bend so you dont kink them.

I would have had a hard time too w/o help. Don't you have a freiend or co worker that can help you. All it takes is another set of hands. I installed mine w/o air tools; just a $20 floor jack, household tools and the instructions at therangerstation.

I love the pic's in the how-to because the PA instructions sometime assume where/what part they are talking about.
