    Looks like a badass truck and was thinking about doing the same to mine, but I'm pretty new to suspension lifts. Does adding a 3" spacer and 3" body lift do anything to the integrity of the vehicle? Will I be driving down the highway and blow out a CV or something crummy?

    Also, if this is in fact possible, what kind of spacer lift/body lift would I require?

    honestly with the fabtech lift you suspension geometry is pretty much the same as stock, as for the spacer and body lift there was a guy on here that had just the 3" spacer and 3" body and it wasnt that bad.

    However, I bet this thing rides like shit, and I would not offroad it

    Yeah I hear ya, I just saw the ad and posted it...

    So adding a body lift/spacer lift does nothing if you have a pro comp/fabtech 6"?

    EDIT: and yes the bedside rails are gay...

    Exactly. Maybe a 6" ProComp (or Fabtech) with a 3" body, but I dont really see the body lift either.

    Get out........
