Suspension lift?

I want to start going off road but I would like to see if anyone has any checklists that they would like to share with me. I have a 4" body lift but I was told I need a suspension lift as well.. What is a good size for 33" tires?

Wtf. U sure! If so get that thing off. Bl should be 1 1/2 " at the most. And then suspension lift 2+ " or so.

Body lifts are installed to fit larger tires in a cheaply fashion. If you have a 4" body lift, you can run 33". I highly advise not getting a body lift, as it does nothing for off road. You can leave it if you want, but it would look weird. For 33" tires, you really don't NEED a lift, but your best bet is run a 2.5" suspension lift and if possible, toss the body lift. That will make you great on and off road.
