body lift is about 400, everywhere i called wants 10hr shop time to do it so 750-800. plus having custom brackets made. another 200 im guessing.. then i still need the bilstiens to level me out properly so thats another 400 (install included).

i dont know whats going to happen. i would rather the suspension lift but i dont want the problems that can come along with it later down the road and i use the bed hauling materials on damn near a daily basis.... and i want this truck around for a long time.

i think my next mod will be gears.. need someone to chime in on that subject.

Will i get better MPG with my 35s doing gears even if i stay the same height. currently getting 13-14 hwy.

I originally wanted them to help with the towing but my dad is buying a tow rig in the next few weeks so my truck can take a break.

side note can anyone tell me about how much of a lift this picture is... trying to get an idea.
Did not know you had a build thread.
I'm subscribed

That lift in the last pic is equivalent to a 6" lift and 35's
Heck that maybe a 6" and 35's...lol

thanks man. hopefully soon I can finally do this.. My dad is buying a work truck for the company so i can save the wear and tear on my truck...

the last picture was my truck on a lift getting the tires rotated. really liked the look of it.

Andrew, can you give me insight on the gear question... will gears help with gas mileage with my 35s even if i dont lift?.. read somewhere you were/are getting 15+ with your lift.

id deff stick with the suspension lift bud... i hear they are easier to put on so maybe less hrs in labor but not sure. body lifts are nice for the price but it changes so many things that need to be redone that its a pain in the ass sometimes lol i swear everytime i look into buyin something new it says *does not work with body lift... haha so thats just my opinion but totally up to you

since you went from red to black bedliner how does that look when you open ur doors/hood? did they spray all the inside jams and everything or is it still red?

i have a red "pin stripe" haha where the hood and fenders meet. and the door jams are red. as well as the tailgate latch bars. i dont mind it... down the road ill get the door jams painted... but for now doesnt bother me.. kinda like the pop of color when they are open.. havent washed it in 2 weeks and still looks shiny.. minus the mud splatter from going to the dump.

Great cant even look on the web for 20 minutes. without finding more things to do to the truck!!! DAMN INTERNET!

Well here is the updated list off mods to do..

4.56 Gears. ( these may or may not come before the lift )but definitely need to be done by the end of the year.
6" lift with Bilstein 5100s and Kicker bars.
20" LED light bar to mount in between the pre-runner bar and bumper.
16k Synthetic Winch rope w fairlead.

and contemplating this one..





Wont be going Rigid.. as 1100-1500 for lights is ridiculous, found a 50" through rough country for half to 1/3 of the price. obviously would have to look into seeing if the mount would work..
