Thread: more lift

  1. #1

    Default more lift

    i need more lift because my tires are still rubbing when at weird angles... do you guys know of a 2'' lift for the entire truck that would help? or will a 3'' body lift make my 33'' tires look small?

    I think that the 3" lift would make your truck look deadly. Your tires are big enough to have a 6" lift on it. Well at least i think...

    I think if you did a 3 inch body lift it might leave you wanting more tire wise. You could always get some wheel spacers, they may solve your rubbing problems. Just my .02 I'm kind of a biggest tire possible on a small lift kind of guy.

    X2 on all that

    I would think that if you only did 2 inches in the rear you would not have to replace shocks .. since the leveling kit companys say you dont have to replace your shocks when you level it.. However if you found a leving kit for the top i would think the shocks need to get replaced..

    cool deal then ill look a little more into that... im hoping performance accesories comes out with a 1'' or 2'' body lift cuz i really dont wanna go 3''... i think the tires will look small and mpg will drop quite a bit, i think

    Thumbs up more lift

    Bilstein makes a adjustable front strut for your truck, good for up to 2.5inches. I think it will work with your rough country level kit. Its on Bilsteins shocks website.
