RF what do you think?! possible body lift...

Alright i have a brand new body lift sitting in my basement that my GF bought me for my birthday.. it was ment for a black truck that will remain nameless

well.. i have 2 choices really

1) try and sell it and take a loss...

2) or listen to my crazy friend Justin and install it on the silver truck...

I cant decide i know this is a "jack lift" its just to get an idea lol... its a really bad way to "photoshop" lol

I'm thinking the same. IF you have it why not try it. you can always take it off.

I think you need to drop that 4.0 in it :)

Do it only if you get bigger tires. But I like your truck the way it is.

i like the 4.0 swap idea.

my opinion on the bl

its gonna fight you the entire way, as rusty as your header panel is be prepared to do some metal repair there.

suspension lifts for that year are cheap. do that instead, apply body lift money to that.

He has a brand new header and core support that he got for the Splash; he can use that on the silver truck if need be (i doubt it will need it as clean as his truck is inside and out).

I say do it man. What could it hurt to try it and then not like it?

im with everyone else.

install the bodylift if thats what you want todo, i would sell it and buy a 4" suspension lift.

the silver truck needs more lift, i think it will look good.

$1,500 is a higher end kit for a TTB or TIB Ranger.

personally, i'm not a fan of tucking oversized tires, your truck looks great with that extra wheel well space. DO IT!!!

one thing about installing a bodylift, you will have to move your exhaust tips up somehow.
