do you take it offroad? and if your just wanting to fit 33's you can do a body lift. but im starting to hate my body lift bc if you want to put a bull guard or brush guard or anything else on it you have to have brackets made.

you can upload them up here and under ur picture will be a URL, copy that

and then use this:



just paste the URL here and hit ok, then when you hit submit reply, ur image will appear in thread...

alternative to this is to use a picture hosting website like photobucket (i use picturetrail.com)....and there you upload pic, get the image url and repeat above procedure..

also, if you are posting something and you need to use a pic ofline, just rightclick on the picture----go to properties and in the properties box, you will see the image url, just copy and paste that using the above procedures...

hope this helps!

I would do nothin but suspension, but if tire travel aint that important then go with a body lift. you might wanna get gap guards if you do a body kit.
