Homerjay4242 I have done some reading and let me see if I have this straight.

To install the 1" BL, or possible the 1.25" BL all I need to do is disconnect the fan shroud, loosen all mounts, and then start putting the BL mounts in. Once I am finished I have to install the bracket from the fan and for the transfer case. Did I miss anything. This install seems all too easy.

Homerjay4242 So I should extend them with the BB, or just if I decide to install the BL?

1BLKJP If you are sticking with 32's then I would say the body lift wouldn't be needed. I ran 31's with no lift when I first bought mine and it was fine. So yours will perform well with the setup you are looking at minus the BL. You will however probably need to extend your brake lines unless you want to risk breaking them.

1" Body Lift

As some of you might know, I have been looking around for a nice lift. Well, after some searching I decided to go with the Fabtech 2.5" Adjustable Spacer setup. With this I am going to run 32 x 11.5 tires. I decided to stay in this range to help my gas mileage situation out. I think 33s would be a bit much for the street.

Well, the lift will give me somewhere in the range of 2.75" of lift and I am thinking about putting a 1" BL. I have read a write up on this and it seems to be a relatively easy install.

My question is, if I install the 1" BL and the 2.5 BB would I need to extend my brake lines? I think that I would, but I am not sure.

Also, any opinions on how this setup would look with 32s? I do not want it to look like my tires are too small.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
