MarkMC has a 2.5" front and 2.5" rear lift for around $120. He is a member on here so look up his lift kits in the search bar.

To be fair....the BDS kit replaces the upper strut mount in the front with a better design. The MarkMC kit does not.

Searching is also your friend... I researched, purchased and installed my entire lift kit without ever having to ask a "which lift should I get" post.

enough said if you look at the pic. MarkMC is the only way to go in my eyes for our platform. I have 3in body and the 2.75in suspension kit on my TB and im running 35x12.50x17. Isn't she sexy!! I think he is selling them again

It all depends on how you intend to USE the lift. For looks or functionally. If you're evaluating them by dollars-per-inch alone, then Mark is the hands-down winner except for the ghetto solution of the JC Whitney coil spring insert gadgets that are horribly dangerous. I have a slightly different weighting system.

Recommend the Suspension Forum, then. More discussion about appearance lifts there.
