    Hey guys i was wondering if a 3 inch body lift on top of a 6 inch fabtech basic lift looks ok or if there is too much body gap or if the rear hitch looks stupid low?...:confused:

    why?!?!? I wouldnt go 3inch on a body lift for safety and cosmetic reasons. what do you need 9inches of lift for anyway? Better get some SICK nerf bars so the chicks from the mall can get in ;)

    I saw a guy here on island the other day with that setup running 37s on a 20" rim. All black with the Rockstar wheels. It looked really nice, but there is no way he was taking it anywhere but the mall. I didn't get a chance to take a pic of it.

    ^ Guy, thats rad.

    i stopped skating senior year of high school when our RB broke his wrist skating and our coach said he'd kill us if anybody else kept skating.

    i'm pretty sure if i tried again today, i'd die

    I would avoid doing the body lift but if you really want your truck to be tall at least stick with a smaller bodylift: 1 to 1.5" max.

    My thought is....if you wanted a big truck, why didn't you buy a big truck. Seems stupid to buy a mid-size and make it big, just looks retarded.

    ha ha yeah thats rediculus to have that crap i can understand a 3 inch suspension lift and a 3 inch body maybe that would look good but gotta think about the tires your gonna be running, and numbah 57 you right i lived in Honolulu for 3 years you see crzy lifts and such for no reason and most cant figure out how to work thier 4x4 lol
