    If I get a three inch body lift and some bigger wheels or tires on my
    06 access cab off road, will it void my 100,000 mile extended warranty?

    no it wont....

    but if something happens and its the body lift or the over size wheels fault, then it wont be covered, they have to prove that its the body lift... hope this helps

    Alright thanks. I got my Toc back in May and I have been lookin on here quite alot but finally got the nerve to ask acouple questions. Last one for the night and again thank you but how much should I be prepared to pay for a body lift wheels and tires ooh and spacers. I say body lift because everyone I have talked to on the mean streets of Charleston WV is sayin body lift is the way to go instead of suspension lift. thanks again and goodnite.

    suspension is way easier. only thing is that the suspension lift will put wear on the suspension. suspension lifts look way better than just a body lift as well. and depending on the size of the tires, u may not need 3"

    Hodge,
    what are the positives and negatives that compare body and suspension. and price.
    I want it to look and ride good on the road as well as off. id like to cap my budget at 2500 is that do able with wheels, decent size muddin tires, and lift. What do you recommend?

    w/ that money, i'd go for the bilstein 5100's w/ the adjustable coilovers for 3 1/2" of lift up front...and then get a 2-3" rear leaf pack...depending on how u want the rear to sit in reference to the front...then whatever rims/tires u have in mind and u should be below 2500. and the tires all depend on preference...u'll not get a 100% "good job" on any tires from a forum. all i'd say is definately dont get the nitto mud grapplers b/c they burn out really quick on the highway...like 10-15k miles

    oh...and the suspension lifts are better for offroading b/c they actually get the frame up higher...a body lift will only do that. and if u actually plan on any serious offroading, i'd also go to allprooffroad.com and get their skid plates and sliders. their main front bumper is pretty pimp as well

    If you're gonna go with the coilovers wouldnt it also be recommended to invest in some UCAs?
