Alright, I have an Idea of what the setup I want. (atleast for this summer)

I'm on a kinda strict budget.. but here my typical place to go mudding/trail riding. Usually just med. hills, bumpy roads, water crossings, semi-deep mud and rough hilly dirt paths.

I also drive 4 hours to school and home every week. So i need something that is road friendly as this is my DD.

I'm looking for the best possible setup for under $400. Looking for most of 4" of lift inbetween a SL and a BL. Prolly a 2.5 SL and a 1.5 BL or 1" BL. I'll still be running my 31's for now. So thats no problem on clearance. Just want a better ride and better flex..

I either want spacer w/ shocks. Spacers alone, or springs. Whichever is the best for the price.

Currently eyeing the RE 2.5 with mono-shocks, or the skyjacker 2.5 with the hydro shocks.. I want something cheap so I can have some fun this summer and then once I'm out of school I can upgrade to some better stuff.. This summer I'll be working on a fire team for wildfires for a couple weeks in which the money will be going towards upgrades

Anyways thanks for the help, sorry I rambled for so long..

Go on ebay buy cheap BB spacers and get some better name shocks.. then if you feel you need more room a 1" body lift that also replaces the factory lower bushing as well.

RC 2.5" SL for the $ is exactly what you are looking for. I have the 3.25 and love it
