To Lift or Not To Lift

I want to put a 4" lift on my truck with 33" tires. This is a mild lift, no big deal, I just want the truck to look good but still functional so that I can hide my truck in the woods when I go dirt bike riding. I know what I want but everytime I ask somebody about lifts they tell me not to lift my truck because it will cause problems down the road. And there is a whole lot of maintance involved. I really don't want to get a body lift because I hate the way they look. Is it realy that bad. I know that drive angles change but the impresion that I get from these guys (mostly jeep dudes) is that I am going to have nothing but problems. P.S. can somebody get me the phone number for Kodiac Customs in englishtown. Thankx! [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: To Lift or Not To Lift

LOTS of people have lifted trucks around here, and how many problems really depends on how hard you beat on it and what lift you get. I think people really prefer the 4" rancho kit right now for a smaller lift, and i don't see any reason besides money to not get a lift.

What truck do you have?

Theres also the possiblity of getting some bushwacker cutout flares and putting 35's on it stock....

Re: To Lift or Not To Lift

Yuuuuuup! Lift it and go 6". why you ask? because i garuntee once you see it lifted you will not only love it more than you ever have will also want more lift. if not you will be happy and then get the tires and then be happy......but in a weeks time it will looks small and you'll want more lift just so you can fit the bigger tires. its a sickness and we are all here because we all have it. go 4" suspension and 3" body, then get gap gaurds to cover the rear wheel well openings and run 35x12.50r15's on 15x10 wheels and you will love it for sure.
And thats my Christmas 2 cents
