you cant get a spindle lift, you have a 4wd, on that note im not sure how to explain it. It makes the steering knuckle(spindle) taller..

For a 99, you have:
Body lift 1, 2, or 3" - $150-200
you can crank your t-bars - Free
RCD 5" which is what i have, it removes the t-bars and replaces them with coil overs - $2300
Super lift 3-4" has some huge drop for the t-bars, leaving you with some crappy ground clearence - $1400
Then there are a few long travel kits but those are a pretty penny

with a 3" body you can clear 33s
RCD says 33x1250 is the max, but you can couple it with a body lift and fit 35s, and maybe 36s
Super lift is the same as RCD i believe..
