poll on what you guys think i should do i need help here for BL

ok my truck has 285/75r16= 32.8x11.5 and i have 1.25" spacers on the stock wheels. truck also has a 4-leif pack useto have a 3leaif pack, chev drop shackels and maybe a 2 turn tb crank in the front.

now i dont know how it would look with a 3" BL on it the way it is now? i dont want to get new tires right away cause these are like brand new.

my GF asked me what i wanted for my b-day/christmas present ish and its between this and the new led tail lights they have now?

+ my dad will give me all sorts of S*** if i get the BL

also lol my gf said she gets me the BL i have ot promise to get the chrome tubed sidesteps for it lol.

It would look better with more of a gap between the fenders and the tires, I say go for it.

ya i think so to, i'd prob get better rims and tail lights, and id like to get a nice grill to, and it never goes off road eather, i just want this for looks and i think the biggest thing is little lift.

Has anyone had problems getting inspected with just a 3" bl?

Lift it!!!

It looks so much better, plus if you decide to wheel you wont have any problems with rubbing.

I really didnt notice that much difference in my cornering when I got my BL and bigger meats. Unless you are drifting your truck you will not have any problems.

You will be fine.

next to BL'ing.....


FWIW, I'm 5inches higher (technically 6inches if you count my tires) than OEM. Body roll doesn't seem any worse than what I was before I put the RCD kit on. If dad's that paranoid about 3inches giving you roll have him think about 5 inches of suspension lift plus 1 inch of tire lift from my 33s.
