You don't want to go higher then a 2.5" levelling kit or it will start to effect your front end in the long run.

So found a combo kit, 2.5" front, 1.75" rear and 1.25" body lift. Sounds like thats the way to go you guys are saying.

Hows much work is doing a body lift? is it just a matter of removing the body bolts from the frame and lifting the body enough to slip in the spacer then install new bolts? (or re-use the existing ones) no issues with brake lines, steering shaft, electrical, etc?

Straight forward. Lifting the body, insert spacers and replace the bolts with the ones in the kit. No relocating anything. Just bumpers with some drilling and new bumper brackets. There's something minor to do with the spare tire holder to but it is very simple.

You would have to leave the truck on the ground and lift the body off the frame. More like 4-6 hours.

I had a 2010 quad quab with a 2.5 hbs level, in 4x4 under acceleration the front end had a horrible wobble.

I did the daystar 2.5 level lift. For starters it doesnt level then lift 2.5 inches.. which im kinda PO'd about. install was strait forward and was easy to do, didnt even use the instructions and it took me about an hour and 20 min to do on my own with a jack stand and a 2 ton jack, which PS will not lift the front of the truck....

Before



After





Front still is not level, going to throw on my blistiens, remove the spacers and adjust them to make it level.
