the real question is why is body lift in suspension tech? It deals nothing with suspension?

The real problem is that Billy mays isn't on the TV showing you how to make it... lol. His opinion is his opinion, he has a right to it. My truck has body and suspension lifts and I like it. The body lifts don't look bad on rangers, although they look like crap on some trucks. You need to move the pivot point up 1.5 inches (on a 3" BL, 1" on a 2" BL) to make it work correctly. It is a lot of work, but it will feel and function as stock.
