Lift kit suggestions

I Have a 2003 Xterra SE ,2wd .
I would like it to sit about 6 inches higher and I also want to level it out. Can someone let me know what I will need I'm kind of new to the suspension stuff.
Also feel free to let me know of a good place to get tires and rims for cheap .

Only way to get 6" of lift on our trucks is to do a 3" SL and 3" BL or do a SAS.

However, a 3" BL isn't really worth it IMO because its a lot more work and $$ because you have to extend hoses, brakes lines, etc. that you wouldn't need to with a 2" BL.

So I would settle with 5" of total lift (an extra inch won't benefit much) and you can easily fit 33" tires with that setup.

A good website for both SLs and BLs on our trucks:

As for rims, you can get a set of steelies for around $50 per rim. Got mine from:

And for tires, just keep an eye out for deals at your local tire shops. Buy 3 get 1 free and stuff like that.

SL = Suspension Lift
BL = Body Lift
SAS = Solid Axel Swap
