best options for a lift

hey guys i have a 2000 3.0 v6 manual

its a 4x4 with 60k miles on it

im lookin for some sort of lift for it, what do you guys think is my best option money and looks wise for it?

i wont be doing much offroading or anything, the most stress i'll ever put on it is just hauling a few waverunners

any ideas?

You'll be fine with just a bodylift. 3" and you can easily fit 33's under it. About $150-200 for your truck's bodylift.

The other option is, imo, doing it the right way, is a suspension lift. RCD 5" kit or the Superlift 4" kit. Those also are perfect with 33's. Prices are a bit more.....$1500 for the Superlift, $2200-2500 for the RCD. The RCD ditches the torsion bars, and replaces them with Coil-overs.

yea, i'll probably just go for a body lift, mostly because of money and when i get new tires i'll get some bigger ones and that will even add an inch or two

thanks guys, it helped a lot
