Default Body and Suspension Lifts

I talked to a guy who installs a ton of lifts. He told me to go with the Zone suspension kit. I will not be really doing any offroading. Just for looks. I want a 6" suspension and a 3" body. Assuming most body lifts are the same. Going to go with the 18" rockstar xd chrome rim and a 37 x 13.50 tire. Considering the toyo m/t. Any suggestions on any of this? Where is the cheapest place to buy this stuff?

why? what does everyone have against body lifts? on chevys and fords yah, they look terrible with body lifts. all i have right now is a 3 inch body and 35s, looks good to me.

as for 37's not fitting with a 6 inch suspension, you can fit them, espescially since you said yer not gonna do a lot of wheeling, if yer going by what the lift says it will fit, thats just what they say for their own liability, just like if you go to schwabs they will swear up and down you cant fit a certain size tire with a certain size lift, then you put em on yerself and they cant believe it. yah you will have more room with the body lift(i got nothing against em) but you probably wont need it. everyone will tell you that you cant fit a 37 with a 6 inch lift, they talk about articulation and all that non sense, but it is in my humble opinion that you will be fine.
and as for the toyo m/ts, i run 35x13.50s on 15x10 wheels, and i love em. i have the older ones tho, ive heard the newer ones dont run as well, but thats just what ive heard, i love mine, they are fairly quiet for a pretty rugged tires and off road theyre great.

and btw, im really sick of people with stock trucks telling other people they cant fit a certain size tire with a certain size lift, if you dont know, THEN DONT COMMENT, stop taking random guesses at stuff.

I would really be interested to see just the body lift reider! I am thinking of doing the body lift since I have the 2.5" lift. That will give me some more height which is always good haha.

Back on topic I think the 37's will fit with the 6" lift. I have 33's on my truck with a 2.5" lift

Hey,

If your going that big you might want to look into superlifts also. They sell an amazing 6" suspension lift which comes with everything needed.

Not exactly sure what truck you have but I put a link down there if you want to take a look. As for body lifts there typically the same.... just make sure you get the cable and line extensions since your going 3". I think if you go 6" suspension then a 3" body accompanies that perfectely. Plus ya you will rub with 37's on a 6" only system. My cousins Silverado 4x4 even rubs sometimes on full lock going up or down and he has 6" susp. 3" body on 37's....
