Default Opinion on upcoming build

i have a 1999 Blazer ZR2 and am debating on 2 different builds. I am either going to do a 5" lift with 2" t-bar keys cranked an additional 1" in front with a 2" body lift and lift shackles in the back and then get some ION Style 174 black rims. The 2nd build would be 2 18" FI subwoofers (not sure which model yet) walled off with 2 extra batteries, all 0AWG wire on roughly 3Kish watts. wall would be all birch so my back end wouldn't sag as badly. I'm leaning more towards this because this is my main hobby but i figured i'd ask for some fellow blazer owners opinions!

I don't understand the point of a wall system in a Daily Driver, so I vote for the lift.

Unless you are going to a competition for the sound system, i would start with the lift. I am a sucker for subs and i would be the most jealous person in the world if you had 2 Fi 18 (only go BTL if you go that big ) i have one wanted those for years now. definitely a difficult choice but like it was stated above, as a DD, go with the lift. Or you can buy the subs and hand em over to me lol

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying don't do subs... just maybe a smaller system in a DD. Like mine. A couple 12's in a box capable of hurting me if I turn it up too loud, but definitely not taking up as much space as a wall system.

Only picture I have of them is from my Neon, but you get the idea:

the lift would definitely be an easier task lol. i most likely would start going to comps after the wall build and i already have 4 12's in the back so i can only go bigger lol
