if you can find it go with a 5"body lift .. i do believe fabtech makes one ... you should be abble to clear 35's with the 5 inch instead of the 3 inch ... if not just slide the valence forward on the brackets

5" of body lift, doesn't seem safe and prolly won't look good, IMO

Gonna need at least 2 more inches of suspension. Most guys that run 35's on their gen3 run a 4" or 6" suspension plus a bodylift. I prefer to clear 'em good rather than stuff 'em. If youre thinking 35's, you need to think about gearing too.

WTF!?!? Little pointer, before giving advice to someone, make sure it's correct.

You're probably gonna need the 4" susp lift since you already have a body lift... go with 2" front spacers as well...

Ah thats pretty good. LOL 5" body lift. I feel like the body would just fall off the frame. Be better off with a card board box. I would agree, if you want total clearance, truck wouldn't hurt to go up a little more

disregard the 5" BL statement

you would definitely need at least a 4 inch suspension lift with a 3" BL for added security

Look at getting higher clearance aftermarket fenders to run those taller tires. It might be less than a new susp lift.

Like these.

I got confused too....from what I've gathered, someone put a down payment on his Jeep, so he put a downpayment on a Ranger/Maz.

and i would never go with a 5" body lift. i think any body lift is stupid .. but the 3 that is on the truck is going to stay.

not to get off topic, but i dont think alot of people actually understand what body lift is. for example this rich little dumbass at my school was talking about how hes buying a truck with an 8 inch body lift. i told him good luck i hope the body doesnt break off the hocky pucks.
