    to be honest i think if its under 3 inches, no bigger. you use nice BIG ASS washers on all 3 sides of the lift, and grade 8 hardware you will be ok. if makes for a ruff ride, but its the cheap ones that mess up stuff.

    "That link is horse sh*t" It's obvious somebody didn't install that body lift right. Show more pics and more links about stories to back up the statement that body lifts are bad. And no old pickups that are redneck rigged and not professionally installed. If you install a body lift right and leave it to a professional then body lifts are fine except for the seeing your frame part.

    this argument is old news...

    just do it if you want...

    if you have no issues, then more power to you

    if shit fucks up, then oh well...

    those who are opposed to body lifts will have one opinion, and those who think aint nothin wrong with body lifts will have another...

    it's your money, your truck, your gamble...

    just do it and have some money set aside to make whatever mods and repairs come with it down the line...
