Default wanting to lift body or suspension

I've read through the threads, i'm lookin to lift my 07 4x4 sport. I guess i'm lookin more towards looks than use so a body seems right. What would yall suggest.

down the line i would hope to have both suspension and body. if i do that what would it involve as far as drive shaft etc.

any help would be awesome.

Default Re: wanting to lift body or suspension

It's not bad to start with the body lift,alot of people on here just do that and they are satisfied with the way it looks. My truck is double lifted and I am planning on double lifting my brothers 77 Chevy Cheyenne. One thing to think about is money, suspension lifts run alot more than body lifts. If you have the money to do both awesome, but if you're strapped for money body lift and crank the T bars, and it'll look nice until you save for the suspension lift. Let us know what you decide and when you do it.

Oh and POST PICS OF THE TRUCK!!!

I used a Parts Accessories body lift, ordered through summit racing, just don't forget the gap gurds to cover the frame/body gap. You will need front and rear gap guards. As for Cranking the T bars look under the "HOW TO" section. STL has a how to crank the Tbars there, it's really good!
