Parts need to Be lifted with 3 in body

ok i looked a little bit to find out what you need to lift in the front with a body lift? i know the backs easy and i put my suspension lift on pretty easy but i hear you have to raise the raidator and some other things does it depend on the model? does Gen 3 have anything differnet the the 98-08?

thank

a body lift isnt recommended with a suspension lift?


If thats what your asking its probably because of the higher center or gravity. Like you get with any lift. Do it and it will be fine there are tons of people on here that have double lifted trucks and are fine.

I didn't even need to lower my radiator, just rebolted it back up in the stock location after I body lifted, no kinks and everything fit fine.. I guess it's different with every truck though.

Yeah, he was pretty much right on the money for lifting your suspension lift with a body lift. Just a higher center of gravity. Unless you take sharp corners fast as hell you won't have a problem. You'll be fine double lifting.

It lifts the body up off the frame so the engine is sunk in deeper. I heard it makes changing the spark plugs wayyy easier
