    Could anyone tell me what would be a good way and the best lift to lift a 97 silverado 4x4 ext cab short bed about 4". the truck would see mostly street a little off-road mostly trails and a little mud. I also use it to plow with so I don't really want to go to highbut want to get it off the ground more, as well as level it out more. Thanks for the Help

    Rancho is probablly the best IFS kit for the size you want.

    Plowing wiht a 1/2 ton Independent Front Suspension (IFS) truck probably isn't a good idea.....with or without the lift....
