    Here is mine. atually considered 2.5 suspension 3 in body. If a body lift is done right with the gap guards and everything it doesn't look all that bad. (Sorry all from camera phone)

    I'll come out and say it before the body lift bashers attack. I think your truck looks good. I think a body lift looks good when used in conjunction with some form of suspension and with the gap guards. If you need some extra tire clearance and dont want to sink thousands in suspension parts it is the way to go. I will agree it doesn't look as good as a 6" suspension lift, which makes it like everyting else in life, "You get what you pay for".

    Ha ya older thread... but I couldn't help but notice that the taco there has possibly the worst lift I have ever seen: 3" spacers up front, 3.5" blocks in the back, and the body lift of course. That would NOT last on a trail.
    Ha that's a sweet paint job.

    First dead give away is theres no gap in between the bed and frame rail, look in the rear wheel well, second the running board is sitting flush with the body, not 3'' lower.

    yeah i was really wonderin about that one cuz i couldnt see it
    but ive been thinkin about a 3 inch lift and maybe a 1 to 2 inch body lift but idk
    easy way to gain some height but im so scared of seeing gaps and the frame or something breakin

    Those arent running boards. They are square tube sliders. And no, its not body lifted. It's most likely just a DB lift.
