Re: body lift.......

mostly cons, theyre really arent that many reasons to go with a body lift instead of a suspension lift.

Re: body lift.......

Except cost. If you want a lift to fit a bigger tire, and have no money, then a body lift will do it.

You still should change the gearing, you'll be pissed because your truck can't get out of the way of it's own shadow if you don't, you'll probably end up getting a suspension lift down the road anyway....

Re: body lift.......

Oh man, when i did mine, i was like, 'Yeah, cheap!', slapped some 33s on, and off i went!
...well, not exactly. Youd be surprised just how slow a truck goes when you pair 33s with 3.08 gears! I didnt have decent rpms until i got up to about 65 mph. Talk about a gas mileage killer!

....And sure enough, i went out and re-geared and got the suspension lift anyway.
