Body lift or no?

What do you think I alreday have a 3 inch spindle lift and 33x12.5 buckshots but now I cant decide if I want a body lift on top of that. Do you think it will look stupid double lifted with 33's?

it will give you the extra clearance, and when the tires run out, you can upgrade to 35s and be ok.

I think it would look pretty good with a BL on top of that. I am a fan of higher trucks though, I don't like the tires to fill the wells. If you could get another inch out of the T bars though and AAL, I think it might be perfect, but then again, I think it would be sick with the 3 inch BL lol.

how about just wait till the 33's wear out? by then you should have enough for the lift AND the tires and you're not wasting the 33's either.
