What do you consider reasonable? Are you going to offroad or mall crawl?

A good kit will not be cheap. Fabtech is not good no matter what anyone says. I have seen too many Fabtech spindles snap. Well any spindle lift won't really hold up to offroading. Camburg is were its at but it will cost you.

super fail on my part...gosh...yea dont get a +98 truck if you want LT...the beaps are so much easier to do!..but if you do look at +98 trucks...make sure its a 2wd t-bar (edge) because its pretty much bolt in (minus shock hoops) for some wicked cool travel! dont forget the monster stickers and +4" wheel spacers
