then why did you ask?
i would far rather just gain an inch then have that big ugly gap from a 2" BL. if you don't care so much about how it looks and just want it to be higher then go for the 2"

|Brian V||idk, I just dont see the point of doing only a 1" it just doesnt seem that noticable to me.|

|Triple88a||what kind of work? Thats exciting.|
|01-06-2008 02:37 PM|
|tobycat1||Also a BL can void any warranty you have left, and some shops may refuse to do some work. Not sure why.|

stock steps on 00.
My front mount is square with 4 bolts and the rear mount is triangular with 3 bolts.. when you flip them over the fronts will all line up but the rears wont.. 2 out of the 3 will line up in the back and the 3rd one will be right on the edge so you will be able to grab the edge with the 3rd bolt.

|jherrin215||What size tires are you wanting to run?? Are you wanting the extra room just for looks or so you can fit a larger tire?? My suggestion is like most, I would stay with a 1 in BL. I think that any more than that gets a lil on the unsafe sideputting such long bolts holding your body onto your frame. Just think, it's just like sitting your body up on stilts, the taller they are the more stress you are putting on the mounting points.|
|01-05-2008 07:18 PM|
|Brian V||p.s. I think I like the idea of turning the side steps upside down...|
|01-05-2008 07:17 PM|
idk what im gonna do? Here's a pic w/ a 3" suspension lift now. Im gonna do the BL this spring, and im gonna do the bumper with tire carrier so the gap on the rear wont show. And im not a hardcore rock crawler. Mostly a DD that gets durty every once in awhile.

i've seen 2" and 3" and they look terrible. JMO

|bluvikng||The reason that the 1", or 1.25" body lift is more favored than the 2", or 3", is because of the amount of torque that is applied to the body, on the rocks. For those that do not play on the rocks, and don't mind the air space between body and bumpers, it really is no big thing. As they say, it is all about personal preference. As with anything, the further away the weight is, from it's mounting point, the weaker it becomes.|

|debruins||and to add to triple88a's pics. he has a tiny spare so if you get a full sized spare and a swing away carrie it will completley cover it up|
|01-05-2008 10:30 AM|
same with "1" BL
|01-04-2008 09:20 PM|
My 2" BL looks good.. the only thing i dont like about it is the back area bellow the tail gate. I flipped my stock step frames upside down so my side steps are virtually the stock space from the body. You can barely notice it in the front and in the back is the only area that shows.
2" BL note the sidesteps (stock height)
2" BL side step frames upside down...
2" BL and 4" Suspension
|01-04-2008 08:35 PM|
have you seen a 2" BL or are u just saying that b/c u think a 1" looks a little silly and imagine a two inch lookking completely silly
i can tell u in my eyesd it is perfectly ifne, but a three inch is a no no, 2" is just abrely noticable and only from the side if you are looking right under the tail lights
|01-04-2008 08:05 PM|
|4point||1" BL max. any more than that just looks silly.|
|01-04-2008 08:02 PM|
mine with 4" susp and 2" BL
i suggest 2" BL
sorry its not that good or big of a pick of the actual lift, but trust me it looks fine with the huge tires and big susp lift, now if it is ur only lift it may look weird, but there is so much open air everywhere elase a little gap doesnt make that much ofa difference
|01-04-2008 03:47 PM|
I know you wanted 3 inches and a 1 in or 2 in, but here is mine with 3 3/4 inches suspension and 1 in BL on 35's.
I will post a pic later with 2 in BB and 1 in BL but for some reason image shack won't work right now.
|01-04-2008 02:58 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||1" BL is my recommendation too. There's no benefit to paying extra for some of the more expensive versions either. For around $80 you can get the Performance Accessories 1" BL which is probably the most popular because it is good quality, complete, and not overpriced.|

|erickpl||1.25" Jks Bl.|
