Well 6" looks sexy but is unnecessary. But I did vote to go higher...even though I only came in to pass time

Right now spacer lift from Top Gunz Customs. I think it is rough country is what they sale. If I keep the 3" I am planning on upgrading to bils 5100 and ome springs. And probably bigger tires. Right now I have 265/75/16

Feh. Modify the truck so that you can use it the way you want to use it. Form follows function and height for the pure sake of height is just dumb.

If you have a specific look in mind and won't be happy until you get it, do it and don't look back. It's your truck not ours.

Man forgot about this thread. I rode in tuferlifes truck and decided while I love the look of a 6in lift. The practicality of it for me being a pre runner isn't there. Not mention even at 6'6" and his nfab bars. I felt I was going to pull something.

Lol, I was just about to chime in here. Ya, at least you felt the 6" though. I like your idea of maxtrac's, that's what I was gonna do when I had my prerunner. You get so much ground clearance, and I feel like 4" looks good. I just could never figure out what to do to the rear to make it sit level. Everyone in the maxtrac thread had that bro lean! Oh well, hope you get it figured out man... Congrats on your bed cover by the way, I really like it!
