It really depends on what you want the lift for, looks or use.

If its for looks, its all up to you. - I would go for the cheaper one, why spend $4 grand on something you wont be using, reduces mialage a little and voids warrenty.

If it is for use, its up the the terrin you will be driving on. -When I do go off road, its usually nothing too extreme for me, so again I would just get the 2.5 inch.

4grand?? My god what lift are you getting?

What do you do with your truck, honestly?

A leveled truck to me looks stock, until you throw 35s on it. Then it s abeefy stock truck.....which I really like! The 4" and 35s looks good, but when you do it you're just going to want to go bigger....trust me. I would for out another 200 and get a 6"

Maybe think of it this way. What size tires do you wish to run? If you want to run 32's the leveling kit is more than enough, 35's and bigger you will need to do a bigger lift.

Default body lift

i have the 2.5 levelling kit on my truck, but kind of want a little more was thinking about a 1.75 body lift, have never had a body lift and have heard bad things what are your opinions on body lifts pros and cons. are they worth it, do they cause problems? etc

ALOT of people are running the 1.25" RCX bodylift. Everyone seems to be happy with it, plus the install is really easy.

If you decide you want to get the body, I have a spare bodylift at the house I'll let go cheap!

That sucks! You gotta have tow hooks in case there is a Chevy or Ford needing pulled out! Or better yet a rice burner! I'd leave the rice burner stuck though!!

You can keep the Tow Hooks with the 1.25" body lift. You just have to notch out the holes on the brackets for the tow hooks
