If you want to run 35's I suggest the 3" BL. That is the only heoght body lift there is anyway. Also what gearing do you currently have?

pretty sure he states he isn't going to be running 35s

I know 2" kits exist.

yea not gonna run 35s, i have 4.10 gears. ive seen 33s with a 3" bl and a superlift but it looks funky so i was hoping someone has maybe thrown a 1 or 2" on and still used 33s.

There is like ZERO difference between stock and a 1in. It's just a little extra wiggle room when flexing. So a superlift and a 1in BL with 33s should look fine.

youll notice the extra inch. superlift with 33s and a 1 inch will look perfect.

yea thats what im looking for, if i buy a 3" kit and chop everything to 1" it should work? i dont want anymore of a gap on my bumpers then now and the hitch should look fine as they are kind of tucked in anyway.

you get the 1x3 blocks from Performance Accessories and then buy your own bolts.

http://www.shopatron.com/products/pr...1.1.0.0.0.0.0? blocks

The 1inch bodylift thread in the bodylift section will tell you all the bolts you need to buy.

3 inch brackets wont work. for the front you do the bumper mod. for the rear you can mod the brackets for the rear bumper to fix the gap.

front with 1 inch after bumper mod.


rear with modified bumper brackets.
