Very interesting post. I particularly paid attention to the part about sticking to 1.5" lift to keep the "natural" geometry of the suspension. I don't care much for larger tires, with 1.5" lift I could easily go from 31 to 32 and it's more than enough for me.
What I need is a stronger/better suspension for the 225 lbs that I'm gonna add to the front with a winch and a Warn Trans4Mer and, the 150 lbs that I'm carrying full time with my RTT and its rack.
On top of that, whenever I go overlanding, I carry over 600 lbs in the bed including the RTT.
So it looks to me like a 1.5" lift would be perfect for me. But how do you do this ? I'm totally against cheap suspension lifts like spacers. If I do this I want to change the suspension but the smallest lift I can find is the 2" OME ?
So how do you get a quality 1.5" lift ?
