Default Body Lift

I'm looking to inquire some information about a 3 inch body lift. i already have my ram leveled and sitting on 33's, and i think a 3 inch body lift would add a little more agressive look. im just looking for some info about it such as the pros and cons, along with any insight u might have if you've installed one on your truck.. thanks!!!

Personally, I think they look cheap and can sometimes be problematic because they stretch the wiring between the frame and body to their limits. On the up side, it's a cheap way to get tire clearance.

I had a Bronco II many years ago that I put a body lift on and wouldn't recommend it. All kinds of weirdness like shifter handles and wires and cables etc. IMHO
