I'd take suspension over body anyday...but when you compare a $200 bodylift to a $1600 suspension lift....


judging by your avatar, do a suspension. they(97 and older) are CHEAP to lift compared to 98+ 4x4s....

Six inch lift FTW!

Body lifts are nice if you just want bigger tires. I myself am not a fan of the looks of body lifts.
