solid axle swap. something you can't afford, nor do you have the capability to do. It puts a solid front axle instead of indepedent front suspension

You can do a Solid Axle Swap. Lots of guys have done it. You have the same suspension as a 4X4, minus the front diff and transfer case. All a SAS will do is make your leg humped raw by the community of RF. And make your truck bad ***.

First off, welcome, from one Mazda owner to another.

Secondly, if you want to lift it "CHEAPLY" so-to-speak, lift spindles, AAL's, and a BL would give you about 5"-ish of lift. You could clear 35's with minimal rubbing. Hope that helps.

Thirdly, I don't mind, nor does anyone else in the thread, but alot of the "OG's" on the site HATE bad grammar and misspelling, etc etc. Just a heads up.

Again, welcome.
