The vehicles I've seen with body lifts as opposed to any other type of non-block lift (yes, even drop down brackets are safer than body lifts) have tons of problems and cost even more to repair those problems. You get what you pay for, and you don't have to spend 2k on a suspension lift if you shop around and talk to people. I must know nothing though since I just work at a little fab shop in West Covina building trucks for the upcoming Baja 1000? Yeah, so I guess yall are right, body lifts are awesome, and they should run the Dakar some day, I'd bet they'd win. WAJ!!!


Theses guys getting the lifts, aint fken racers or pre-runners, think about that heh, you bash them like the truck is going to fall apart if he goes into the mud or hits a speedbump, and stop acting like your the master because you work at a shop :). I worked at a shop once to. I think I just threw a chair at you if this was jerry springer.

I have a body lift, and am proud of it.

Like we always say at RPS, body lifts do their job. Body lifts are meant to clear bigger tires. That's exactly what mine does. If the guy wants to clear bigger tires, then a body lift is the perfect way to go. Why spend hundreds, maybe thousands, more for a suspension lift if it will rarely be used? Now if he's gonna do some serious offroading, then I'd say to get a suspenion lift.

^ ^ I like that quote. I work at Wal-Mart, Splitfire. We're worth $300billion. We sell everything. Guess that means I'm all around better than you. :D

I'm of course just joking about that last part, just had to throw that in. Don't attack me, I'm but a helpless newbie.

Body lift or spindle lift -- it's going to look TINY on the stock tires. Here's my truck on 31's after my spindle and rear block/shackle lift.

Think how tiny STOCK tires will look!
