Question Lifting on a budget?

Like most people I have a limited budget on a lift. I want like a 2.5 inch suspension lift then a 2 inch body, does anyone cost estimates, the only thing I am seeing is rough country lifts, Not sure if i am just missing them.

just tweak the torsion bars to 1.5 add lift shackles in the rear and toss on a body lift.

what are your long term goals? if its just to get 31's in there then that combo i listed will get you there for the cheapest...i ran that way for years before going on to the 5inch suspension lift.

never saw any adverse effects on the front end either...worst thing i had happen was the boots slipped of the cv shaft...easy 5.00 fix there.

my two cents

Long term goals are to fit 33s under, what is the best way to get there i wanted to steer clear of body lifts so i didnt have do do other adjusting with bumpers n steering n stuff

yeah, you're not going to fit 33's cheaply without a body lift....
