I Personally don't like Body lifts! I think they don't look good. I think for what you are going for on your truck I wouldn't lift it. That's just me though.

It'd look better and function better, those wheels are practically "stuffed" in there!

Yeah, I think your tires would look "wrong" with any kind of lift. You'd need something a bit bigger if you do that.

I wouldn't lift it unless you need to -- to many disadvantages on the street really.

And I like the two-tone paint...

The only downfall in your situation is the tire size. They may look a little small.
