3" body lift

where's the best and cheapest place to get a 3" body lift? I need it shipped and want a quality kit. Nothing cheap and flimsy. I don't think I will need the bumper brackets since I am making my own bumpers if that matters. How much am I going to pay?
thanks

Get the PA kit for 01-05's. I checked your truck out and everything check out to work on that kit. I think the Summit brand kit has everything you need as well....and it's cheaper. Make sure it's got the steering extention.

If you don't need the bumper brackets then I"m positive it will work. All you need is the blocks, bolts, steering extension and the radiator bracket. Ford hasn't majorly changed anything since 98.

Oh no worries, I always like to get a couple of opinions. I've been wrong before

This seems like the cheapest route minus the whole bumper deal. But I think my bumpers are gone anyways.

This older kit will work on the 01+??
