Any more lift options for '99 4x4

Hi, I was just wondering about any more lift options for my truck. It already has a 3" BL on, and being the offroad edition, came stock on 3" blocks in the rear and the torsion bars are cranked up front. It's already on 35x12.50's and never rubbed. I guess I'm wondering if buying a kit like the SuperLift or an RCD kit would actually give me any more lift than this or if it would just make the ride smoother than having the T-Bars cranked (which is kinda stiff). I know I could always use AAL's in the rear, but I don't know all of my options in the front. Thanks for the help.

You from Snellville and you have never showed up to one of our meets at Union Grove!?

As for the lifts, a good ole suspension lift is your best bet.

Yeah a Superlift or RCD will give you alot mroe room and probably make your ride quality much better as well..., although I don't know how much bigger I'd go with SL kit..

Lift kit or SAS. That's about the only real options for those Torsion Bar IFS setups.

Nope I don't rub em at all. Ill get an updated picture on here so you can see. That's cool you got the same model, I never see any reg cab stepsides at all. My current pic was when I bought it, without the BL and on 33s.

I rub occasionally with 35s. That's with 3" BL and t-bars cranked.

Your only lift options are the 4" Superlift and the 5" RCD...or Solid Axle Swap.


Yes those kits will net you 4" or 5" of suspension lift.....alot more room. No way you don't rub that front inner fender right? I ran the same set up before i was superlifted.

It's not the fastest thing on the road, but that's not why I bought it. The 3.0L is strong enough as far as I'm concerned. I couldn't race anyone though.
