3" Body Lift on my edge, I think...

Im going to finally do it!!

I have been debating for about 3 months now

I have a 3" spindle 2" aal 2" blocks and 35" all terrains on it right now, I think the extra 3" from the body lift will make the truck? Do you guys think I should put one on, or leave it?

id say bl and lower torsion bars, your truck will also ride a lot better. depending on how much you lower them you might have to get the front re-aligned

I personally like the sag. It gives it the "Prerunner" feel :]

I wouldn't recommend a body lift, especially if you do any offroading. Stay suspension and get some coilovers :)

Do your 35's rub on your fenders w/ the spindle lift?

A lot of guys run a body lift and offroad a lot with no problems. Zabeard and 99ranger4x4 are 2 that come to mind, and 99 beats the **** out of his truck lol

Yeah i'd be more worried about something messing up with the spindles before i'd worry about a body lift..

My opinion is body lift it and then lower the t-bars..even though it'd already been mentioned.. give you a good ride and a little bit more clearance

Nope not with my t bars cranked up, they aren't actually maxd either. The tires rub a little when I turn sharp, but barely any..

I ran a body lift on my 99 4runner with a 9" lift and 36" tires and wheeled hard. i never had any issues with a body lift. It actually gave me more clearence with for the tires. Some dont like it because after awhile they creak and make noise. You just have to tighten them up a little now and then.

I like the look of the sag in the back, but i guess it kinda one of those fashion over function kind of things.
I would get some shackles if you do any wheeling.
