I got a FABTECH 3" spindle kit and an add a leaf.
I a have great suspension feel and look.
It was about... $500. *NEW*
From FABTECH.
Take a look into it.
Tell yoru friends to F*CK OFF! 2WD's are the **** lifted.
They are easy and look bada$$!
Tell them they can wipe the slobber off their faces when they look at it when it's done. Ha ha.

A 2wd truck CAN be relatively good off-road. Check out N3ELZ's truck.

The nice thing about a 2wd truck is that it can be lifted for a much better price than any of the 4wd lift kits. Take a look into Fabtech, Pro-Comp, or Doestech spindle lifts along with some add-a-leafs for the back. This topic has been covered a LOT though, so there is lots of information on here. Look in the upper right corner and check out the "search" function. There are lots of folks here with lifted 2wd trucks that are just downright awesome, so tell your friends to go play in traffic or something

Welcome to R-F!
