do you want looks, or usability? body lifts are just good for looks, and in most cases under off road use can lead to damage of your body.

SEARCH, it's been covered before.

Bodylift = $180.00 through summitracing.com 1999-2000 bodylift. (Yes it will fit)
Spindle lift + AAL = $500.00

What is your truck 2wd or 4wd that will also make the decision easier.

i went with doetsch spindle lift over body lift being that i off road and want more clearance, i also wanted prerunner lean to my truck cus i hated the front lower than the rear and i didnt want to loss ride confort by cranking my t-bars. Body lifts are just not my taste. you lose features and also show off your frame more which doesnt look good.

if you go abouts spindles doetsch are $415 shipped and you can get shackles for around $50 which lift the rear 1" or 2"

4wd have a different setup and do not use spindles so the only thing to get to lift a 4x4 is body lift, superlift(suspension), and cranking the t-bars. rear lift you can still do AAL or shackles.

Do spindle lifts and rear shackles increase the wheel gap like a body lift does? Or does it simply lift the entire truck/frame higher off the ground?

Thanks,
-Nigel
