Jus got a 2013 last night, I couldn't afford the mega hooked up 2014 they had, but I wanna start my journey towards that point. I don't wanna just get a basic stage 1 kit to save $$ but I definitely cant drop 5 g's just on suspension parts right now. I really need some advice & price points from u pros on how you started & what with, & how to go about this the smart way... Im not looking to climb rock walls I jus really want an aggressive look that will perform in basic off road & snow ( not hitting trails n stuff round these flat land parts in Maryland) ... I really would like to start with big tires & custom rims right now cuz its the quick n easy path to getting something done, but its a waste to limit myself buying something that wont rub now when the end result for this project is a couple inchs of lift & leveling???

Better to do it once, the right way...than spend twice .... and the key is research

Good luck...

Cheers

Welcome from the UK.

I think we've all been through the "which should I fit". I know I did... with a bigger budget I'd have gone another route now.. so as said don't rush, research, read some build threads too to get ideas of what others have done and why.

Welcome from PA! Lots of good advice here. I think after a little bit of reading and browsing around, you'll be able to narrow things down. If your wanting a look, level it. It will give you that aggressive look without dumping $$$ into a suspension that you won't get use out of. Spend a lot of time in the wheels and tires section because some modifying may need to be done depending on what you choose.
