    I guess they say it because the c.o.g. is going to be drastically changed and it's going to be easier to roll over.

    Thats the case with any lift. There should not be a problem with combining the two. Just remember the higher you go!! 100_9022.jpg

    The warning they posted with their instructions is more of a legal disclaimer in case anything happens they wont be held liable.
    Normally when using the term "Stacking" when pertaining to lifts most mechanics will mean modifying say a suspension lift for increased height with additional parts that arent designed for or with the kit.
    As far as putting on a body lift and then adding a suspension lift most mechanics wouldnt consider that to be stacked since their 2 totally independant lift systems that dont interfer with each other for the most part.
    Like someone else posted the biggest concern when lifting is the "Center of Gravity" (CG). CG becomes a concern no matter how many lifts you use the moment you lift the vehicle above stock height you have to learn how to safely drive with the new factors youve added.

    You can use both a suspension and a body lift together. What you can't do is stack body lifts. If you have a 3" body lift you can't put another on for 6"'s. It puts to much stress on the bolts.
