    If you don't want to get into complicated suspension changes, you should probably stay at 2.5" or less, from all I've read on the subject. My truck is lifted 2", but I didn't do the work, and it seems to handle just fine the way it is. No matter if the lift is only 2" or 2.5", you should at least check your wheel alignment specs. If you go 2.75", you might consult with an expert about getting longer shocks absorbers at the very least. Once you hit 3", then big bucks start to roll.

    Most likely, "Incorrectly".

    Here's a good article on what to do and what NOT to do.

    There's no easy answer here. You have to match your budget to your needs, and you need to have a plan about what you are going to do with the vehicle after you lift it.
