body lift

i'm thinking about going with a 3" body lift instead of a spindle/AAL lift.
i don't really have the money to buy the spindles, and can purchase the whole body lift for cheaper than a pair of new spindles..still if anyone has a pair of 3" lift spindles they'd like to sell let me know, and if any of you have pics of your truck with body lift only i'd really like to see them. oh is there anything bad about the body lift that the spindle/AAL doesn't have?

X2. I had a body lift on my last truck and regretted it within a month of having it. Not to say that you would, but I would never go back to one again. i'm sure their is going to be a difference of opinion on this, but to me it just isn't worth it if you plan on doing anything crazy offroad. As far as looks go, the spindle lift looks much much cleaner and there is no frame hanging under the body and gap in the rear wheel well. save up and get the spindles.
