Well first I will suggest you read here for awhile to decide what you want, then go find them at a good price.

Fill in your profile so we can better help, also realize that there will be more mods you have to do the higher you go, it's just not about lift and tires, there are other things you must strengthen or change the higher you go, and often they won't be included in the lift. Also usually cheap and quality do not go together, I would figure out a budget, and then by the best lift for that budget, not buy the highest one you can for that budget.
