Ok guys...I'm looking at getting a body lift for my truck...I'm going to order one through 4crawler....I don't do any offroading or pull anything so a body lift should work fine for me...I was going to go with a 2 inch...can anyone convince me that I should go ahead and get a 3 inch? I don't like the amount of frame that shows with a 3 inch but, I want to at least be able to tell that I added some lift...what is everyones opinions on a 2inch versus 3inch? Pics would also help...thanks guys...

Alot of people are gonna tell you not to do it, but I did one on a S-10 long ago and it was fine.(3-inch)...One good thing about the amount of frame that does show, is that if you do happen to high center your truck, your body has less risk of damage to the rockers...there's a thread on body-lifts in the forum somewhere, I was just reading it...some people are down on 'em, but they are a cheap way of getting a few more inches...but there is alot of stuff that has to be moved or "lifted" along with the body.....the thread is called "body lift tips"...

if you are already on 33's a 2" should do the trick: easier to install, less frame, and still noticeable. Either way it should look good:waytogo:

i dunno Danielle... 3 inches is a lot of other stuff to modify... u plannin to run bigger tires too? cuz 6 inches of lift on them 33s might look funky... might be better off starting over and doing a drop bracket lift...
I dunno Mike, I guess if I was a pimp daddy who took photos of hot chicks all day I might could afford a drop bracket lift..but dammit I'm not...I've chosen to risk my life every day and be a cop:lol: ...maybe I should start taking bribes...na, I think I'll just do the 2 inch lift... should look fine...thanks everyone for all the responses...especially you Mike;)

all the work involved and the price there are several other ways I would do it. that is just as cheap and a whole lot better looking and safer and easier.

dork... hahaha... ya know i got love for ya... besides, i got my photo training at my local PD as a cadet way back in the day... went from shooting mugshots of juvenile offenders to shooting headshots... not a bad trade off...

i say you forget the bribes and just make a bunch of extra arrests for the court overtime... especially if you're on the 3/12, just imagine how much more $ you can haul in with 4 extra 10-15's a day, right? :evil:
