    this is going to sound stupid but im curious as to how i can lift my truck and the cheapest way with max height.... i already have a leveling kit, is there a taller block that i put in the front with a lift block in the back i really dont wanna do a body lift at all i have an 04 fx4 extended cab shortbed and i will be putting the biggest tire option i can go with for the new lift i end up putting on

    if you've got a leveling kit that's about all you can do to the front other than getting an actual suspension lift. you can make the rear higher with bigger blocks but the front will still be low.

    i was told i could get a kit to go up 6" in the front but i dont know if i would trust the source and the lift lol i found a guy who has a skyjacker kit with shocks for a 3" lift im just how big i can go on tires and if a three would look good on my truck

    They make various sized spacers up to 3". People claim that the highest you should go is a 2.5" spacer otherwise it causes front end wear. Kinda like turning torsion bars up all the way. 3" is the tallest in the front without a lift though. Then you could go 3" block in the back...

    im interesting after looking at pictures of other trucks that are lifted i wanna go 6" and i like the way they look with a kit but i saw a truck that had a 6" block in the rear with a new shock but i dont know how he did the front... you cant stack the front spacers can you?

    Noooo stacking! Lol the highest level kit you can go is a 3" and that's a little risky, front end parts don't like a 3" level. The only way to get 6" suspension is to go with a full 6" suspension lift. you can't go the ghetto way, unless you add a 3" body lift and a 3" level. Here's my truck with a 6" suspension:

    You go a 3" level and you'll be replacing ball joints all the time. Cheapest way to lift is the 2.5 level, an aal in the back, and a 3 inch body lift.

    How high and what tires do you want?
