Do you want 3 inches of lift... or do you want 3 inches more clearance?

You can lift your truck with tires.... increasing to 31's will give you about 1 inch over stock....

That'll work, but you forget that you have to fabricate your own bumper brackets. And most people can't do that, so they end up not reinstalling their bumpers which in my opinion looks terrible.

Well, depending on the application, you could just go and use a customer bumper like the welded steel ones.... And make it loook angry...

The guy said "cheap" Will.. I don't think he wants to spend that kind of cash on a custom welded bumper.
