Re: cheap budget lift??
I'd search for used stuff and go to 4" springs or you'll want more later. Buy stuff from someone who has gone to a solid axel, they value TTB very little. Then do the shackle flip for the rear I went from 2 to 4 and now 6. sold used stuff as I went, but it cost me more over the long haul. Norm brings-up the solid D44 because hindsight is 20/20. If you a getting into serious 4 rated trails and rocks the Solid 44 has it's advantages and is less expensive to set-up if you can do it yourself with buddies. If you want high speed romping the D44 TTB is better.
If you really think a 2" lift will suffice now and into the future, I agree with the guys 2 inch coils, alignment bushings, and maybe an add a leaf in the rear (on the cheap from the junkyard F150 springs are thinner and can be added without getting a harsh ride.
