    Cut out the DB lift and put a solid axle under it. Running IFS and 37s just doesn't work IMO. Things will wear out a hell of a lot fasted

    Are you just trying to clear larger tires? Do you offroad y your truck? With that much of a lift it might be dangerous to throw a body lift on there and then try to wheel it. My.02. If you do it I want to sweet some pics!

    I am one of the few people that would say a body lift is OK, if installed correctly and made of good materials. I've installed a few RB 2" BL's and used them well, with almost 100k miles between the vehicles.

    I would NOT install a 3" body lift on top of a 6" DB lift.

    Take a pencil by the end and swing it around, no problems...now take another pencil and duct tape it tightly to one end, swing it around...not too bad right ?

    Add one more pencil in the same manner and see what you get, not only can you feel the weight/force pulling out wards but you also have some flexing in the same direction. I cannot imagine having that on top of another 6" lift for safety reasons.

    I would like to see a few pics of the Zone Offroad 6" lift and any feed back you might have about it.

    Good luck

    Just stick with 35s, minor trimming, maybe a cmc might help, regear front and rear.

    Wow...3" Body lift?

    Something to think about.... I knew a guy with a Jeep (long time ago) who had a 3" body lift. He had a panic stop, and the entire body of his jeep slid off the pucks (bolts broke). That much momentum and that much weight....the bolts couldn't support it.

    That's pretty much it. You can get the longer coilovers for the drop bracket lift and crank them up to 3" of lift

    Only bad thing about cranking them up to 3" is you are putting more of an angle on your cv boots, tie rods etc which which isn't good and then your ride quality is gone.
