Fair warning, you're right about the body lift kits being cheaper. But, unless you and some friends can tackle it yourself expect about a $500 flat rate installation fee from most reputable installers.

On top of that you may want to also consider buying the fender flaps to hide the hideous gap between the body and frame that will show afterward.
