$1500 budget lift...

well ive got a 06 le crewcab frontier, going with a mini lift and running 32s but need to stay with in budget... as far as tires and wheel Id prolly need some spacers because I like the look of a bit wider stance, not to much though.. any suggestions would be great! using income tax money

Is your limit $1500 for just the lift? Or $1500 for lift/tires/spacers?

Tires are important so I'd make sure you leave enough room in the budget for good tires.

For the lift, consider either ADF spacers with Energy Suspension bump stops or adjustable Bils for the front. Blocks or shackles for the rear. Make sure you factor in adjustable cam bolts and a front end alignment too.

For wheel spacers, go with these guys: Wheel Adapters, Wheel Spacers, Hub Centric Rings | Motorsport Tech

I just did a quick search on Discount Tire's web site for 265/70/17. Tires in your price range that you might consider:
BFG Rugged Terrain
Yokohama Geolander A/T-S
Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo 2
Pirelli Scorpion ATR
BFG AT KO
Goodyear DuraTrac
Hankook Dynapro MT

Or Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires from Walmart.

You can DIY Titan swap and magician together a leaf pack all for around 500$
Grab some spacers if you want more lift in the front end and spend roughly 500-600 on tires.

You should be well under your budget

OP is the lift for form or function?

Yep yep, just because prg wants 1.5 million doesn't mean it costs that much to make it yourself

That's crazy. I've not seen any TS builds of that price. Would be sweet to follow one. Or do one

I've got 250 into mine and I need axles which I found for 100 shipped and I need inner and outer tie rods, or the spacers if I can find them used but haven't price out just the spacers yet
