The risks?On lift trucks if it is done right I don't know of many risks.Ball joints can go bad.Suspension lifts like I have lower everything down to pretty much stock while your suspension goes up to make your truck higher.My truck rides great still.I havn't seen much of a power loss and I only lost maybe 2 mpg.

Leveling kits can cause problems, ball joints going bad and cv's are at a bad angle on some cases.You level a truck so it does not nose dive and to put bigger tires on there.

I hope I answered some of your questions for ya .
I have to agree with Bighorn, lifted trucks look awesome! And the 4th gens look really good with a lift. I really like Bighorns truck, and wish he would take it offroading lol. But, if you're going into parking garages, there's no way you'd make it in with a lift.
