Body lift, cost efficient, "relatively" easy to install with help, also make sure you get some type of gap guard. I wasn't going to, but that gap is just AHHH, I ended up forking it out for them.

given if I remember you stating correctly you mentioned along the lines of that the truck won't see dirt. So, with that it mind, unless you have one crazy mall parking lot, I'd say go BL.

Now if you want to sport the suspension lift I say WTH....go with both. If you do, I'd go towards a setup like zach's....regeared plus 35s and a few other odds and ends. I'm actually contemplating keeping the use BL I have and getting 35s when these BFG MTs are done. Or do I want front glass for the 35s? Aw crap, I must ignore myself and save all my money for paying off my student loans. Stupid conscience!

BL for that street queen. Susp lift would be a waste of time, money, and a good kit.

Yeah, keep it cheap and just a body lift.....unless you want to spend some money and it do it, but you'd probably ditch the tires and rims eventually.
