    ok since there are a few other people including me thinking about putting a body lift on i figured that this would be a good tread to put all stuff body lift related in

    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-7810013/?image=large

    here is the one i might order soon pending if i can find new tires


    pics of truck with body lifts would be nice too...especially of ones with different size tires..stock 33's and 35s

    ya i was looking and didnt see on on their site anywhere so i will go with the 3 in from them since it is only 150 for the lift and front bumper brackets

    is it true you can flip the rear bumper brackets upside down to raise the rear bumper up??

    It would be awesome if the rear brackets can be flipped will save some cash. hopefully someone can post a pic of a truck with 3in body and 35s.

    315/75/16 = 34.6 and 315/70/16=33.4 crazy at how much of a difference it makes. hope you are running 75s, because I am gearing with 4.88s and think with 33s it will be way to much gear.
