I have a 3'' on my 2011. Only thing that is different, is the steering is stiffer, and it corners differently.

Body roll isn't increased a noticeable amount. Steering feels stiffer because the rubber the shaft goes through in the firewall is at an angle and rubs.

You'll get used to it and if you drive enough it will wear itself down.


As for 1 1/2" body lift, there isn't one. Sure you could cut down the blocks from a 3" but why. Just toss in 3".

There is no 1 1/2" BL. There's a 1" and a 3". 1" doesn't need things extended like the filler neck or bumper brackets shortened. I'm not a fan of them but of the two I'd do a 1". I have a 1" in the garage and am debating about putting it on.
