you can but a body lift for round that price. It''ll give yeah the look of a lifted truck but won't had any ground clearence. Or you can just buy everything 1 piece at a time. It might take ya the school year but, eh next summer will be fun right?

Yeah you can just gotta look around, I've spend some time just lookin up random parts for my truck. Here is an awesome site that has great parts that are reasonable.

My lift is the Calmini 3" Suspension lift. My tires are Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs 285/70 R17

wait for a bit and find deals on suspension lift parts in the for sale section

all you need for the front to get 3 inches is upper control arms... avoid calmini, go with ACs or SLRs... for the rear, get an AAL and extended shocks... DONT RUN BLOCKS... and your done

upper control arms will set you back 200 on a used set and an AAL will be about 110 and the shocks... well the shocks are your call

its easy, i spent 400 bucks on my lift... thats it

What about the UCA kit from 4x4parts, that any good? Any why not run blocks in the rear? I was planning on doing the 4x4parts 1.5" blocks with their 1.5" lift shackles. I don't wheel the truck at all, just need a bit of a lift to make it look right...not to mention my front tires rub something awful on the body during tight turns :(

blocks will give you axle wrap, just invest in a good AAL, itll be better on your leaf pack

and yes, the UCA kit from 4x4parts is good!... thats who AC is

axle wrap is when under acceleration your axle actually wraps around or torques, usually the drivers side shifts forward and the passenger shifts backwards on nissans

axle wrap not only kills your leaf springs but it also kills your u joints on your axle cuz they will be acting as the pivot and taking all the stress
