Didn't now if you had torsion bars so i said spacer as well. But you don't have springs so that's not an option. Just Max the T bars and shackle or block the back then.

already got the front cranked as much as im comfortable with and the back up so i have a slight rake. i agree, a 1 inch bl is alot of trouble for 1 inch, especially since ill have to pay a shop to do it since i dont have the necessary mechanical ability, and the idiots that put my linex on claimed they couldnt get the bed bolts out so they linexed over em, making getting the bed off that much more difficult, even though the same shop linexd my 04 and managed to get the bolts out then. musta been pressed for time. once you get sitting a little higher, you want more. hell, im about to spend 7-8 hundred for new tires to give me 3/4 of an inch, so why not a bundle for an inch? its a sickness.

I did just the t bar crank and put the 32's on. It was a good first jump in height and I am happy with just that (For Now). I was thinking about goin a little higher in the future by blocking the back an inch and putting a little more twist on the T Bar, which would be very cheap. What size tires are you putting on?

If I was going with 33's I would have done the 3"BL's (with no shackles or PreKeys). Just my personal preferance, as I am not to keen on the body to frame gap 3"BL's leave (even with gap gaurds). I like the in between look of stuffed wheel wells and to much wheel well. It's my daily driver so I didn't want to go to crazy lol. Happy medium lol.
Current avitar is stock suspension with three cranks to the torsion bars (stock 2010 keys) and 31" MTR's (really 30.7"). I will be updating my avitar this afternoon to reflect my new set up.
A 3" bodylift and 32" tires with what you have now would look fine

Im running 265/75/16 with a 3" bodylift

What bumper mod do you have to do with the 3" bodylift?

you dont have to do anything, if ya want an extra 3 inch gap between your bumpers and the body, if i understand it correctly. or use bumper brackets and raise the bumper with the body. if i go with a 1 inch bl, the gap wont be nearly as awkward looking and i can keep my front tow hooks without cutting up the valance.

The extensions for shiter, steering, ground strap, hose are not needed with the 1"BL. As well no rad blocks are needed. Only thing you need to supply are the 16 longer bolts and washers (6 for cab and 10 for truck bed). Most of the stock ones wont be long enough.

The BL's are 1"Thick x 3"Diameter Peformance Accessories Part # BB01. See link below.

so what about 1.5 inches? i got a bumper from iron bull crap its all crooked and i would need 1.5 to 2 inches of lift to make it look good any info on where to go with that? i was also thinking of buying a 3" kit and machining it down to 2 inch but then everything else would need to be modified

Didn't read thru all the posts on here, but I can almost guarantee someone has already said this:

What is the point of going thru all that work/ trouble/ money for a 1" body lift?
