Suspension Questions

So I posted a thread in the New Members section with a picture of my truck and one of the memebers that welcomed me to the site (hard2kill) commented that it looked as though my truck had a body lift. He recomended that I post some pictures up, so I took some pictures and have to agree that it is a body lift.

With that being said I would like to know what the pros and cons are to body lifts and if it ok. It does appear to have after market struts and possibly coils but the only thing I know about them is that they are made by Rancho. I am pretty uneducated when it comes to wheeling and am trying to read and learn. I have owned 20+ cars but all were extremely low, highly modified street cars so when it comes to a lifted truck I feel lost. I'm sure I will get it but it all seems like chinese to me right now.

I greatly appreciate the information on this site as well as the proffesionalism of the members. I've been a member of many forums and this one has the most helpful members that aren't full of themselves. Hats off to you all.

I took the pics so i may as well throw them up. Any feedback or opinions are appreciated.






Adaptor plate and spacer?

Where the frame rails use to touch the body?

Looks like a 2'' BL to me. I would take it off if you can.

Thanks for the welcome and yes I'm a proud Austinite!

Why do you recomend I remove the BL? Not trying to argue just trying to understand why It's a bad idea. Rebel, don't you currently have a "1 BL?

I do not like the idea behind a BL. I have read multiple bad things about them on different threads and forums, seen pictures of them poking through the cab, etc. I got mine so i could fit my rear bumper. I bought it under the impression it would fit without a BL. I had already cut my bedsides and tried to install it and it didnt fit. The cheapest way was to get a BL so the rear bumper would fit. I didnt have enough money at the time to get a custom high clearance bumper made.

I have been saving up to get a custom bumper made and i will take the BL off when i get it made. I also hate the gap in between the front bumper and sliders.
