    I was thinking to get 2 or 3" lift for my truck. I use my truck for everyday driving. I am 6'1" tall and would like to make my truck little bit taller. I would like to know how the way it drive? I know that I cannot turn corner too fast because it will roll over. The gas mileage might lose 1 or 2 mpg. I was thinking to get lift from my dealership. Will it void my extended warranty for the lift???
    Thanks!

    Just get some 5100's, they rides BETTER than stock, I have mine set @ 1.75" with the leaf spring TSB & the truck looks great with no ill effects.
    You can buy all 4 for $300 & installation is a snap.

    DON'T PAY THE DEALER FOR A LIFT. If you want to piss your money away it's your call...but I'd highly recommend NOT doing that.

    The 5100s are well reviewed here and seem like a pretty good way to go...

    I mean my tire dealership. Sorry for misunderstood. I decide not to get lift. My grandmother was in hospital to get pacemaker for her heart. Her insurance do cover on most of her surgery but not the doctor and some other. So I am helping my grandmother to pay her debt. By the way, thanks for the info. Maybe next year I will get lift, who knows. :)
