2wd and 4wd body lift

how come that body lifted 4wds look so much better than say a 2wd coil sprung like mine? every time i try and talk my self into a body lift i look at pics and say nah, altho some coil sprung trucks look better that others. i was just wandering if it was cause of the t bars or is there somthing else im missing??

Well you 2wd sits lower from the factory if your refering to height. I have never noticed any difference in look though other than that...

yeah most of us who have the 4wd's and a body lift have also cranked our torsion bars so we're a little big higher than you coil sprung guys. I hate my body lift.. i mean yea it served its purpose for fittign the 33's but id much rather have gone the suspension route.

idk i always thought the frame hung lower on the 2wd? maybe its just causer xlt are lower to begin with and cause you cant fit as big of tires
