Well i think you should hear the good and bad of a body lift.

Good: Cheap and easy install,room for bigger rubber,puts a good stance on your truck. Performance Acc makes a great kit with detailed instructions,comes with all the extras,bumper brackets,steering extension,gas filler hose extensions,radiator brackets ect...

Bad: Trailer receiver hitch will hang 3in lower than bumper,Tow hooks are useless if you dont want to cut your valence,exhaust will be 3in lower,visible 3in gap between you body and frame looking at your rear fenderwell. I would recommend getting the gap gaurds to cover up the gap between your body and frame.

Most of these are cheap easy fixes to get your factory look back. The hitch is something you can do if you are/know a good welder. My hitch mod.....

You could do either. I just took mine off.

To the OP, I have a 3" body lift in mine and like it, I just need to get gap gaurds now.
