3 inch lifts are fairly easy...for an inexpesive one Tuff Country or Rough Country.

The problem is, once you've gone 3 you'll wish you'd done a 5 inch. Sadly, it's where doing it right requires more work..err money!

You'll want a better track bar for one. You can ones that are upgrades from the factory bar, but getting a bar that eliminates the ball joint design is your best long term option. There are many options to convert to a 3rd gen style bar but the best one out there is the DOR (Dodge Off Road) one.

The 3 inch lift limits you to 33 inch tires. 5 inches will allow you to run 35's but you really ought to run lower gears to do it right.

Up to 5 inches your stock brake lines will be fine.
