Why do some people do like a 2in susp lift then a say a 1in body lift? Why not just go a 3in susp lift? The only reason I can think of is after they put the susp lift on they decided to go more then added the body lift.

The less suspension lift keeps your steering geometry better aligned and the more lift you have you will need a longer drive shaft, upper and lower control arms the list goes on

normaly people do a 2 or 3" suspension lift and then do the 1" body lift accompanied with a 1" motor mount lift, MOST of the time this eleminates the need for an sye and cv driveshaft.....most of the time 3" and under on the suspension lift people put a 1" transfer case drop but with the body/motor mount lift you can avoid all that ;]

saves you the cost of a sye and new shaft and still allows you to run 33's. Also With a small BL you can run LCG skids.

Great info.And doing a mml causes the back of the engine to tip downwards,correct?

Yes a mml lifts the front of the engine thus lowering the tail of the transfer case to help with driveling angles. This avoids the use of a transfer case drop

did the 1" BL on mine becasue I needed new mounts anyhow, plus it gives me the room for the MM lift.
