Default Body lift questions PPLLEEAASSEE

hey guys, got a 02 ford ranger edge 4wd and go wheeling about once a week, dont need anything big but was thinking a 3" body lift with bigger 30 something to give clearance. I really want a suspension lift but is pretty much out of the question when it comes to price. I got some questions and hope i can get some help. thanks

1. How hard is it to install a body lift?

2. I know it makes a higher center of gravity but r we talking death everytime i turn or just if ur being in idiot the odds are alot greater?

3. if its just a 3" lift how much difference of drivability is it?

ive heard great things about body lifts and to go for them becuz of price but not sure. I do go wheeling almost once a week but nothing stupid and this still will be a daily driver...thanks for all your comments etc

PS...any tips or advice is welcomed, new mods, etc thanks!

The whole few thousand for suspension lift compared to a few hundred for a body lift makes it a easy decision : /

1. Its not easy, youre going to need help.

2. No... just dont be stupid and do e-brake slides in a parking lot or something

3. The only thing i noticed is that my steering is a bit tighter feeling now.
