    Default Which budget boost?

    Going to pick up a budget boost, new rims and 33s this fall

    Which one should I go with? Any opinions?

    Still saving up for the long arms so this isnt a permanent solution but will probably be used for about 24 months

    I have the 2.5" Teraflex BB with their 9550 shocks. I kept the factory rims and went to 33" tires. Because of the rims I had to use 1.5" spacers (went with Teraflex, too). Since you are changing rims with the correct offset, you should not need a BB to run 33". The Teraflex is pretty good. However, if I had to pay full retail, I would not have gone with their shocks. Are you changing shocks or getting extensions?

    If I were to redo this, I would go with Bilstein 5100 shocks ($340 set of 4) and the Teraflex 2.5" BB for $260. A nice $600 investment.

    If you are planning on keeping the factory shocks, then you'll need the Teraflex 2.5" BB with shock extensions. This is $345.

    As far as shocks go, I second the bilsteins. I have them on both my truck and there is no comparison. Worth every penny.

    I didnt realize the BB wasnt needed if I swapped rims. That makes things easier and frees up more money for nicer rims/shocks

    I want something black, would LOVE to have beadlocks but I doubt I can find them for under $600

    You can always go with faux beadlocks. As little as you wheel, you may not know the difference! Ha ha.
