Most likely, but I would recommend getting a full 3 inch suspension lift to fit the tires without the body lift. Most owners on here, as well as myself, despise body lifts

TW world has been notorious for speaking negatively about body lifts. I have concluded that like many things one guy said its bad and the bandwagoners followed suit.

There are valid reasons and situations in which a body lift is a viable option. I think a 3'' is a bit extreme however if it accomplishes what you want and you are happy with it so be it, its your truck.

This is true^^^
I personally have a 3" body lift and I actually use it. I stuff my tires all the way inside my wheel wells and without the body lift I'd lose 3" of clearance in em.
It is extreme but teamed with a 3" suspension lift, I can go anywhere lol

Where did you get your body lift from. I've had good results onthe past with them. Even on a mud racing taco! But that was over ten years ago.....

Truck came with it when I bought it. I personally love it and I'm not gonna let some biased forum change my mind lol teamed with the suspension I got 6" of total lift on a 4x4 without being a drop bracket lift.
Running 33x12.50 mud grapplers without any trimming except for the cab mount chop.

+1 I ended taking my 3" body lift off and spend 300$ and got some used 5100's and an AAL from a friend, body lifts are cheaper but they are frustrating to install IMO.
If you still want one i have my old one i might be able to find all the pieces for.
