    There are as many build ups as there are snowflake designs. What is this rig for?? only hard offroading... towing? dailiy driver? What kinda mix? Two how stiff (bouncy/firm, but less body roll) or soft (soft ride, but more body roll & flex) of a rdie do you want? What size tires do you want to run and how big you want to get? How cheap are we talking about?

    Well assuming affordable is in there I will assume you would stay at 4" of lift so you can keep the stock driveshafts... then it comes down to hown much fender you want to cut. Also it is probably a good time to look at gear selection and what axles you want to run... 1/2 ton..3/4 ton? Give some more details and I'd be glad to help out as I have been down this road ... and now am putting in my 6" lift [​IMG]
