3" body lifts

to all of those out there that have given me crap about body lifts and how useless they are i wanted to mention that i took my original lift of 3"s off and cut it down to 1" and am running the same 39s with no rub......it feels alot safer now........im almost to an lcg build except for i still have 6.5"s of lift.....if some how i can lower it another 3"s it will be real squatty and ofcamber wont scare me so bad

Oh Damn! I just ordered a 4" body lift and an 1 1/4" suspension lift. Was that wrong?

i run a double triangulated front susp....and a wishbone rear.......i can get you some pics if you really wanna see it......i think part of being able to run without a front trackbar is the hydraulic assist but i havent ran without it since it built it so im not sure.....yes its all long arms.....front lowers are 42"s long and rear loweres are 38"s long......would be crazy flex if it wasnt for thos dam limiting straps

What? No? I thought that's what you and I agreed would make an awesome combination when we were out at the meet & greet last month!
