I had a one inch lift in mine. I still have the blocks and bolts if your interested in them. When I did mine, all I needed was the blocks, slightly longer bolts and modified the front bumper holes on the frame a bit and that was it,

6 blocks for the bed, and 6 for the cab. But i still think if your gonna go through the effort you might as well just go 3".

well the only thing that was hard on my body lift was getting the OE bolts out. I broke just about all of them. The extensions were the easy part. But it could be easier with a 1" bl if your just gonna leave the bumpers at stock height.

Theres no issues with having to extend anything with a 1 inch bl?
and what issues do auto trannys have with a body lift? always wondered but never found anything on it.
and sorry for the jack just figured while there is a 1 inch body lift thread i might as well ask.
