    2.75 inch lift on it and it looks great, put the larger tires on looks even better, so of course like evryone said, now he has seen it it with that lift he wants to go higher. Read all the negative posts about body lifts and we will not do that ... I looked on the net and it appears he does not have to many options, unless there in something I am not seeing.. I told him if we were going to do it we should at least get a 6 inch.... any advice from you pros here.... thanks..

Armor- custom tube bumper, kr fab rear bumper,trail gear wiy 78 in sliders Performance-intake manifold spacer, vibrant resonator Random stuff- kenwood head unit,b&m t shifter, hood bug deflector.
    With body lift 2 inch would be the highest but I say just do a 1 inch body lift

    Stock... For now...
    Honestly, with 5 luggers, the only real options we have for lifts are fat bobs, mid travel or long travel. If it's height you're looking for none of them will really yield the looks of a procomp or fab tech 6 inch lift on a 6 lug. I hate to say it but, you just won't get much more out of it.

    the 6lugs major difference is HEIGHT. they have the same suspension travel, so if height is what you're after, then you have to trade it in.
