Re: 2 opr 3 inch body lift?

well i would go with the three becasue you need more lift. they are relitivly the same you just need to watch for all eletrical connections and ground wires to the frame from the body. the instructions will help you out also. it is easy either way so i would go with three.

Good luck getting the body off since it is already an extra 6 inches in the air. Post come pics of that!

Re: 2 opr 3 inch body lift?

Let alone getting in the cab after install! I'm not really big on body lifts and would avoid going over 2" (just my 2 cents), but I would be lying if I said I never had a 3" body lift in any of my vehicles in the past. Guess it all depends on what your going to use it for and how hard you will beat it.

i wouldnt ever use anything other than a 1" ord body lift kit, picking the body off the frame just doesnt seem right to me. Go with the 1" body and 1" zero rate add a leaves all the way around and walla, you got more inches.

Re: 2 opr 3 inch body lift?

I did something a little different. Granted it was on a pickup, but you could do the same thing.

I used a 3" body lift puck on the rear of the cab, then a 2" puck on the front of the cab, and absolutely nothing on the core support. I was able to massage the fenders and hood to fill all the gaps. Now, my hood slopes 2" for visibility and no one is the wiser! It turned out awesome! Plus, I didn't have to worry about fan shrouds, tranny lines, etc.

i thought of doing something like that but then your bed lines are way off, w/ an 8ft bed this would be quite a bit by the tailgate.

I have also seen this done on a K5 where every body lift "puck" was slightly shorter and angled from 3" down to nothing. Thus, causing the entire body to rake.

Why do you need more lift? Looks? Clearance? Just wanting a ridiculously high center of gravity?
