considering 3" lift

I have decided it's time to install a lift. I've settled on a 3 inch lift and 32 inch tire on stock 15 inch rims. I've read other threads and get the jist it is better to spend money on a quality lift. That is more than my budget can handle for the lift and tires. Black Diamond seems to be reasonably priced. Has anyone installed the 3 inch BD ? I'd appreciate comments good and bad.

not a three in. lift but should handle 32 in. tires and its ten times better

a few links the shocks are half the cost of the first lift
but they are around the same price as a body lift

Are you saying that the budget boost lifts are 10 times better than a 3 inch coil spring lift ? why ?

I guess he thinks that you were originaly going with a bodylift....

Suspension lifts are the only way to go, Body lifts really dont accomplish much...

I have the 3 inch Black Diamond lift. I am pleased with it and its great for the money. The ride isnt the greatest and I will probably replace the shocks with OME shocks. I have 33 inch tires and still have a lot of room so 32's will be fine with that lift. It perfroms well off-road but I havent done any serious trails.

I thought you asked about a 3in. body lift I'm running a 3in. terraflex coil lift with 33's and i'm happy with it till I go to 35's

If you did the lift over would you do the 3" Terraflex so you could choose your own shocks like OME ? Is the 3" sufficient ?

I ended up changing the shocks I orderd some shocks for a
4in.lift.
I ended up with more travel
1100 on a 20 degree RTI ramp is pretty darn good for stock control arms

the terra flex shocks ride relly well
I just wanted more travel

Ive never rode with ome shocks but the shocks I want are fox racing shock when I go bigger with 35's
