Part of the reason I don't like them is because I'm OCD when it comes to my truck and the alignment of things. If you lift the body there's tons of things that stay low attached to the frame. Like the hitch for example, you'll end up having a huge gap between the bumper and hitch which I think looks ridiculous. Things like tow hooks won't line up properly etc. I can just see there being problems with wiring not reaching and all that stuff. Plus you'll open your hood and your engine will be even lower in the compartment....
My opinion is to do a suspension lift first, you can easily get 7.8" out of suspension if you want to. Then if you still want more height a body lift is your only option. I doubt most people will need to go that high.... Overall I just think body lifts are kinda half assed. I'd rather spend the money and do a proper suspension lift.
