Default Body lift for a 2013

I wasn't quite sure where a body lift question should go...but anyways, I have a set of bilsteins going in that are being set to 2.1. I am also going to be adding a tgc 1 inch rear spacer to get a bit of rake back after the install depending on how it looks. I am tossing around the idea of adding a small body lift as well...specifically, the zone 1.5 inch body lift. What's everyone's thoughts on body lifts? I have never had one on any truck I have owned in the past...

Here is the zone bodylift I am considering

Body lifts are a BADDDDDDDDDDD idea! Had a one a previous truck and dad had one on an old Blazer. My truck ended up snapping the body bolts connecting to the frame and body slid about a foot off the frame! Yikes! Go with a leveling kit instead, much cheaper and safer. Just need an alignment and all done! Will normally fit up to 35" tires and will provide the stance you are looking for. Hope this helps!

Do some digging around and you'll find all kinds of horror stories about them....plus you'll have a horrible gap between the body and frame
