If I ever wanted to switch from a 4" to a 6" lift, is the old one reusable?

yea usually the difference between a 4" over a 6" is an ada leaf in the rear and a torsian bar crank.. this depends on the type of lift you got and if you have full lift leaf packs in the rear and not blocks... what kind of lift is it and what is it on?

It is a Tuff Country 4" suspension lift. That's all I know about it.

It's a 4wd duramax. Is a body lift necessary to put on 35 " tires? If so, absolutely.

a body lift will just give you a 2" or 3" lift at a fraction of the price.. your lookin around $200 for a body lift but its a pretty time consuming job to put it on. and with the four inch on top of that 35's will definitely fit. My guess is that you have four inch blocks in the back and you could always call tuff country and ask for a rear add a leaf for the rear and crank the torsion bars in the front. This will prob be another $200-$300... its all preference

With a 4" lift on in already you should be able to fit 35's. Another couple of inches would make it look perfect tho. If you plan on doing it yourself, aal's and cranking your torsion bars would be far easier then installing a body lift, they suck to put on.

yea my body lift i did myself and took a good 8 or 9 hours ( we prob could have done it faster) but it was a pain in the neck... go with a torsion crank and aal's it will look better than body lift too
