    I currently have a 6" Pro Comp suspention on some 35's.
    I want to go higher and I'm considering a 3" body lift. I want to know ya'll opinion on it, the pors and cons. And if I do, will the 35's be ok? Can someone post picture of thier rides with the same lift. Thanks!!

    i bet you can go alot of places that they cant thats the beauty of having a midsize. and i bet if you look at them, you probably have around the same ground clearance they do

    If you have the 6" drop bracket lift, I believe you can add some aftermarket coilovers for extra lift in the front and maybe shackles or something for the back depending on how your rear lift is done now.

    If you do any hard wheeling I would question the strength of the stock toyota axles for tires larger than 35s. Might hold up fine, idk.


    I personally think a body lift will be ok if you only have a mall crawler, but in wheeling situations you risk having your body mounts/body lift pucks coming through your cab. That is bad stuff right there.

    i had a 91 extended cab with a allpro 6 inch sas and a 3 inch body on 39.5s iroks and i beat the piss out of that truck on the trails and on the street. Obvious reasons not wanting a super tall truck on the trails, cant see over the hood, higher center of gravity, etc. but i jumped that truck and the body lift never even flexed.

    <a href="http://s179.photobucket.com/albums/w309/91extcab/?action=view&current=truck2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w309/91extcab/truck2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    hope that info helps.
