Everyone says no.I assume a 1" is safe but 3" is a no go.i never had a problem with any body lifts but these guys have posted some pretty bad wrecks with body lifts.

Are you re-gearing also because that big of tires with a 2.7 could pose a problem. I would not go crazy with a body lift but I dont see an inch being a problem. 3inch ones just dont look right IMO.

i heard that a 1" for our trucks would need to be special made. there are 3" ones around though. not sure how much the 1" would make as far as steering linkage, etc either.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe a 3" body lift require mods such as extending the fuel lines and such.
