Seriously.....

it ain't that bad w/ a 3". Make a kit that uses the 2x3"(2" tall, 3" dia) blocks from the ebay seller in the 1" thread. Figure out what bolts you need...approx 20mm longer than stock. Use the bolt lengths from the 3" PA kit and 1" BL thread here. Piece it together. No telling if you need a steering extention. You'll need to make something work for the back bumper. you can use PA front bumper brackets because mine is setup for 2" BL(1" gap between bumper and grille). Make it. Seriously.

it just irks me what your complaining about, take a look at any picture of a lifted truck u WILL see frame, the only way not to see frame with a truck is todo a body drop to lower the body down past the lowest part of the frame.....

Thanks for the sarcasm. Im not the first person to bring this up, there are plenty of people who dont like the look of a body lift.

Im surprised you guys are taking this so personally, LOL, its just a question HAHA

It's ok if you don't like the look of a $200 dollar body lift, we'll all laugh at you when you put on a $1200-3000 dollar suspension lift and get the same amount of height.

They are in the directions for the BL kit. Say it's a 3" body lift and you want to make it a 2, you can just subtract (x)mm from the bolt lengths.

laugh at a suspension lift over a body lift? dude just stack two 3 inch kits and you just saved like 3 grand. lets put as much stress as we can on our body mounts or maybe get lucky and just rip the bolts through the body.
