    I am looking to purchase a 4 inch lift with tires and wheels but how much should I expect to pay for the the whole package? Plus install?

    what size tires you gonna run? that will make a big difference in price...wheels too...lets say about 1300 for wheels and tires...and maybe 500 to 600 for the lift...install i dont know as i would do it myself...

    wow! things must be real cheap out there! here, and probably more expensive in NJ, i set of bfg at's 35x12.50 will cost close to $1000 for four tires at sears. then 4 rims, if he wants anything besides the standard steel wheels (which is what i would get, but they aren't flashy) then that might be another $1000 bucks, and a 4" suspension lift which they only do around here with springs in the front, blocks in the back is like $500, you can get the springs in the back but then it is like $750. If you are going for flashy then it is going to be spendy. if you don't care what it looks like as long at it works and takes a beating then you will save some money, can save more if you do the lift yourself. still tires are going to be you most expensive part.

    what I am looking to do is run 35's with a 4 inch lift, but I am worried about doing the work myself since it will be my first time doing it. How hard is it? As for the wheels since I have a black 74 K5 I think the AR 39 rims would look sweet on it.

    sweet, another 74! i bought mine w/ the 4' lift on it and 33" tires. there wasn't any rubbing issues at all. i bought a set of bfg a/t's from a buddy for 150 bucks, that was a deal of a lifetime! and they rub all the time i think my lift is saggy and the shocks need to be replaced. but i hear that lifts are not that hard to install. just be careful when compressing the springs. those things will shoot out like a gun. sorry couldn't be more help, but i won't be doing a lilft until later this year.
