    Hey is anyone running a 3" body lift with also either a 3" or 6" suspension lift?

    I just wanted to hear good or bad things that people have experienced with body lifts driving just for street or also mudding/off-roading. Also any pics would be nice. thanks

    my friend has an 05 with one and he loves it. his setup is 33s with 20's it looks the same as a 6 inch suspension. the only downfall is you can see the frame on the sides, and the front skid plate

    If you are adding sliders to your rig- I'm guessing you wanna do some wheeling. And the parts for for body lift are no designed for that kinda stress. They look good enuf on the street- but wheeling something like that can be really dangerous.

    yea man if your going to be wheeling, your adding the extra height but not the clearance. you probably hate to hear this but your not going to treating the truck right, or getting the performance wheeling with the body lift. sure it looks great. but either stay safe and wheel hard or go all the way and dish out the dough.

    can u fit 35's with the RCD 4.5inch lift? i know that is a good one too.

    Yeah...If you are going offroad at all....Don't do a body lift. Those mounts are not designed for that kinda stress.
    Take what you get with a 3 inch or wait for the 6....

    No need to get Body Lifts... Mud will put too stress on the spacers if your hitting them fast... They will only cause more problems
