    I know everyone is against a body lift but my truck already had it on it when i bought it....im wanting to also add the 3inch suspension lift off of suspension connection and wanted to know if anyone had any pics of one like that and any information you guys could give......
    before anyone says it i dont want to take the body lift off and put a 6inch lift or anything like that.....i want to leave the body lift and add 3 more inches....

    Thanks !!!

    Also could i run the 3inch level kit with the spacers and u bolts that come as a kit on the truck with the 3 inch body lift.

    here is a link to it ...

    yup, there are lots of trucks on maui with 3'' spacers and 3'' body lifts, Its not the best or the safest route to go but I guess it works...sort of

    My friend seen a accident between a body lifted truck and a light pole and he said that the whole cab ripped off of the frame and spun through the air into a field, Im not saying it was due to the body lift but you never know.

    Yeah, if you don't wheel hardcore, TTORA is not the place for you. I just love that place for technical things because if you can think it, it has been covered there and can be searched.
