Well any suspension lift for cheaper than a body lift will be t bar. Even the rough country kit is t bar. You can do the t bar lift for almost free though and a body lift runs around 200 usd. Cant wait to see some pics. Search around there was a post not to long ago about the back glass actuator. And how to get the glass open to replace it

so small little change, i went to get prices for spacers and tey will only sell me 1.25 inch. so instead the body lift will be ordered on friday, its 300 for a 2 inch , also going to get the spacers for the rear to make it more even, then some 31s, will update with pics as i get them.

Sounds good. Where are you getting your body lift? You can order spacers bigger than that look in the wheel spacers thread here on the forums. I think you can get the pa body lift fot like 200 if you order it

yes the pa bl is 200, but its american and after shipping and duty and everything it would kill me, i live in london, but now i think it might be on the back burner, i dont think my 4lo is engaging, the front tires dont spin, i got stuck in a 3 foot snow drift....any ideas why it wont spin, the light on the button comes on, it jolts and clunks like it should but the front dont spin....

ok i figured out why its not engaging, newb mistake, the truck was not in nuetrul when i hit 4 lo and also wheni put it into drive, the light was still blinking before i changed gears, newb mistake i know o well.... im ordering the bl from 1 of 2 places, one is a local custom shop(black top customs) or a speed shop here in london. my good buddy knos the owner of black top cstoms so i might be able to get it a lil cheaper :P
