October 29, 2010Body lift is cheaper. A leveling kit is usually just new keys and leafs. Crank your stock keys now a little to level out the front and add a body lift
November 7, 2010A levelling kit works great and is not that much money-I did the Rough Country front/rear kit.
Check out gallery for pics
November 8, 2010Or you could do a 3.5" lift from superlift, thats what I did. The only reason I didnt get a body lift is cause I dont like the look of the gaps from the frame and body. I have had my superlift on for four or five years now and havent had a problem!
November 8, 2010body lift is really cheap compared to suspension lifts, you could always buy gap guards for about $80 also. i have a side pic of my truck in my gallery showing the gap guards. it has a 6" susp too, just so you know it wont be that high.....ha
November 17, 2010You can get 3 inch torsion keys and 2 inch blocks with U-bolts and shock spacers for 175 bucks on ebay. The kit is made by CCM off road. Its what ive got on my truck and I haven`t had any problems with it. I ended up getting new shocks but you can run stock shocks if you want.
November 29, 2010Just go all out and do 12+ inches of lift. It`s the way to go really.
November 29, 2010^Nice Truck. But to high for a dd in my opinion. I dont regret doing my 3.5" at all
November 29, 2010Yea I would only go half that high, pretty much all purpose of having a truck is lost after 12inches of lift.
