body lift?

Hey everyone been looking at doing a little lift nothing drastic and looking at the stickys that are around here i have a few small simple questions. One is if i do a 3" lift do i need anything special such as a extened brake lines or anything special. Next is if i was going to use the 1" lift where do i find them the ebay page supplied is no longer avilable. Last what is recomended for both? some more info on my truck is a 2000 4wd auto v6 3.0L extended cab step side.

don't bother with a 1" body lift just crank your tbars lol. 3" body lift is where its at. all u gotta do is extend the fuel filler and breather hose along with the steering extension....all u need to extend. DO IT!!!! haha

For a damn good quality "Budget Lift" with a bunch of good reasons to do it - its WELL worth having a 3" Body Lift!!

Nothing like being able to reach right up through the wheel well to pop out your spark plugs without having to contort your arm through the top
