    You don't want to go more than 3 inches unless you get a drop bracket lift. Your going to ruin your cv's if you go any higher.

    can't find a 1 inch, how hard is it to cut down and install? also don't want the bumpers to show difference. Truck probably looks great to everybody else,but after I added 3 inch tube nfabs,don't look as high to me!

    Oooof. Don't add anymore to your suspension, bad things will happen. Throw up a pic so we can see what the issue is.
