    if you NEED more clearance for tires, get a 1".

    if you WANT more lift, nothing more, dont do it. get a DB lift.

    no

    if you wan't more height do a 1" BL and run 35's (will require tubbing of fenderwell. Search for info on tubbing).

    yup.

    Stick with 33's and 3" lift OP.

    Just my opinion since you asked for it.

    stock.....for now...
    Body lifts are ugly, unsafe, make the truck vibrate, shimmy, shake, ride like shit, and they can cause further damage to your truck. <<<facts, not opinions.

    ^^^Coming from a guy w/ a body lift that hates it and is eagerly waiting for his tires to wear out so he can take the POS off.

    If you must, get a 1'' BL if you need clearance.

    3'' suspension and 3'' of BL looks like SHIT on these trucks.

    3'' Lift and 33'' tires are ideal for these trucks IMO

    My buddy's Ranger had one. One of the cab mounts broke one day. It was funny.

    Don't do it.

    I have a 3" BL and I am removing it when I get my return in two weeks.. It is ugly as shit and rides like shit, not to mention it isn't safe. (fyi I bought the truck with it).

    I am going with a 3" lift and running the same 33's that are on it now. Should be perfect.
