    Put the body lift on and it will be just about right. Good looking truck.

    i dont' think it needs a lift. you wont have clearance issues as it is. plus it will be a bitch to climb into. if you get a lift, it might need bigger tires.

    I like it. A lift wouldn't hurt though.

    I think it depends on what you do with it. I personally don't like lifts, especially if you use your bed for anything. it's amazing how much that extra height sucks for loading/unloading things. If you do lift it, skip the body lift, and do it right with a nice suspension system.

    a suspension lift for a 3/4 ton IFS truck is way too much for me, i was gonna buy a rough country 6" for $1300 but it wouldnt fit on a 3/4 ton

    i have a friend with a 1500 chevy and a 6" rough country suspension lift on 35s. looks mean. he still has problems clearing the insides of the wheel wells when turning though. and i think it rubs on the front bumper a bit too. right on the corner

    The only thing you gain from a body lift is ugly ass gaps, and bumpers that look like theyre about to fall off.

    If your not gunna put a suspension lift on it, just trim the fenders out.

    well, it would help the fender rubbing some, and i have the brackets for the front bumper and the back one wouldnt be bad because i have the diamond plate there, but i am gonna try to just trim

    Look into cranking the torsion bars in the front. You might be able to get away with raising it a little without having to hack up your fenders. It will also help get rid of some of the rake your truck has.

    i already cranked it, it doesnt have a rake right now, we trimmed it and it barely clears, so we're buying a 2" block for the rear and new torsion keys for the front instead of the body lift...
