Default Want to look into getting a lift 3"?

Hey guys.... Did some reading up on some threads but i guess i had overly no luck.... just getting bits and pieces of info here n there....

I just want to do a simple lift... of 3" if possible... (notice most people go for the 2.5" for some reason)... without the need to replace anything...

whats a good company to go see for that sort of lift? (affordable) not looking to spend big bucks...

what all would I need? and need to whatch out for and so on...(minus rubing of the bigger tires if i went to go with 35" tires... im still in the midst of thinking on getting some....

Im prob going to be planning on doing this myself (can use a hoist at a friends shop)... i dont overly work on big vehicles much... mostly work on my own sleds and 4wheeler and so on... but wouldnt mind getting some more knowledge tinkering with trucks.... but nothing too intense...

im starting from scratch so any info would be great!...

Note... im more or less looking at a body lift....

I got a performance accessories 3" body lift on ebay. I found it somewhere online for $330 and the guy on ebay price matched for me. Was real easy to install.

Did you need to buy anything else to get it done properly or did the kit come with everything you needed?

you can get nice body lifts from 250 to 400. The only downfall about the body lifts in my opinon is how the motor sinks down. I had a fun time climbing in there for a tune up. Most kits will give you everything you need and should be able to do it in a weekend.

Kit came with everything but gap gaurds(if you want them). I used just my basic tools and did it in my driveway. Took 2 of us from 9am till 1:15pm. Not bad considering the local 4x4 shop wanted just of $600 in labor.
