    Hello, I stopped by a local shop today to ask about putting a 3inch lift on my truck. It already has a leveling kit on it but, I think I want a little more. The man told me I can either go a 3inch body lift but have the big gap in the rear body to bumper, or just do the 6inch lift on it. Is this true or are there other options for me to go? I have been reading about the new coilovers but I guess I just dont understand them right yet. If i went that route do I need anymore rear leafs?

    I dont think a suspension lift should ruin your bumper because you are doing a suspension lift which will raise the truck with the new struts now i think a body lift does give a problem. best thing you can do is go to www.4wheelparts.com and call them they will be glad to help you.
