body lift pics

this truck is off of ebay and its got a 3" body lift and looks realy good, and the frame is barely noticable in the pictures.
thought Id post this since there have been questions about body lifts lately.
from the pics Id think there would be enough room to stuff some 35s in. I also posted a pic of the front end just to show it doesnt have anykind of susp lift. and its lookn as tall as most 4" lifts.

Re: body lift pics

I'm not a big beleiver in body lifts taller than 1", but just to let you know, there's a guy here on base with a 3" body lift and 35's. He's got a later 90's 2500LD with a 3" body lift and he's running 315/75R16 (35x12.5R16) Wild Country TXR's on the stock rims. The tires look fine, not at all like the rim is to narrow, they have no rub marks on them, and the fender and bumper aren't trimmed at all. The plastic air damn under the bumper has been trimmed some, but nothing more than I did to fit my 285's. One of these days I will remember to go take some pictures of it.

Re: body lift pics

AJM,
ya, I think I remember you telling me about it awhile ago. Im debateing again wether or not to go with the 3" body lift. for the prive you cant beat them, and it can be removed once enough money is saved for the susp lift or solid axle swapp.
I want 35s like you wouldnt belive and I think this is the way I can get them with spending more than a couple hundred bucks, the only problem is that I havent ever seen any used 315s, in any type of tire, and I just got my 285s

Im interested to see how that 2500 looks with 3"s and the 35s
so anyone got any used 315s?

Evan

Re: body lift pics

I am 99% sure that that truck has more than just a 3" body lift. I am guessing it has more like a 4" susp lift and no body lift. I removed the air damn on my Sport that had a 6" lift and there was about that exact same amount of the stock skid plate showing.

Anyway, I could be wrong....Ryan

Re: body lift pics

it does look alittle tall for just a 3" body lift Im guessing that it migh have the torsion bars tweaked some with a adaleaf in the back.
Im pretty sure its got a body lift though I can just barely make out thye gap under neath the bed and frame.

Re: body lift pics

I do have to admit Kid, it is tempting to me too. $100 something for a 3" body lift kit, some beer, pizza, and buddies, and walla, I can fit 35's. At the same time, like I said, I don't like tall body lifts.

I'll take a picture of that truck soon. It really is a good looking truck, red paint with chrome grill guard, grey work truck grill, chrome bumpers, etc. Looks good, but a little to pretty for me.

Re: body lift pics

The only thing I dont like about them is how much frame hangs down. I think nerf bars spaced about an inch from the body would hide most of that, to make it look like its not a body lift, because their made of 3" tubing.
anyone up ya its pretty early Ive already got about half a pot of coffe finished and Ive got 4hrs before Ive got to be to work.

Good Morning
Evan

Re: body lift pics

That is a body lift on there. Look at the front picture. Where he took off the front valance under the front bumper. He did that because the bumper was relocated up and the valance would have to have been cut so the tow hooks would fit. Also look at the side picture. I don't know much about 4" lifts but don't they drop the torsion bar cross frame down just like a 6" kit does. There is no sign of that here. I would never put 35"s on this truck. Look how close the front tires are to the fender in the picture posted from the drivers side.

Laters, Ryan
