Lifting a 99

man, cant believe its coming to this, but im wanting to lift the 99


I was wondering what some of my options are to get it up there? like what to start with and add later...


I dont plan a body lift, im looking for all suspension, if i do go BL, its going to be last.

So since its a 4x2, im assuming id get some coils, spindles, and something for the rear. (might start with explorer leafs ~1inch lift and do from there)

so whats some good makers and wheres good sites to find them?

thanks
ScottG

I agree with getting a suspension lift if you got the money, they look a lot better and are more functional...Are you actually going to use this truck for off roading or just for show? If your going to off road it, I would start over and get a 4x4. In the long run I think you save money getting a 4x4 instead of trying to make a 2wd into an off road vehicle. But I also understand money dosnt grow on trees, so somtimes you have to work with what you got...
