Re: new to the 4x4 scene can you help
<font face="comic Sans MS">First of all, I'd check out the body mounts **VERY** good before even pondering a body lift. I'd do the same regardless of year, but especially on an older one. The reason being that a body lift puts more torque/stress/strain on the body mounts. Both the ones on the body and the ones on the frame. [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I'd probably not go with a 3" body lift on any vehicle, 2" would be about my max I'd go. Still get a bit of lift out of it but less stress/strain than higher.
If that's found to be ok then your body lift plans should be able to proceed.
Parts for that year should be very easy to find. All sorts of parts. Body parts *might* be getting a little more scarce but newer models should be able to fit with minor mods too, even later model front clips with some mods...
I like the older ones due to simplicity, everything is considerably easy to do. Plus less in the way of emissions crap. Easier to clean up too (like ditch the stuff that's there)... Just my thoughts on that... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>
