Default Re: is a body lift worth it

I prefer a BL over say a T-bar crank and AAL. Reason is with a T-bar crank your loosing alot of travel, I find that on my truck it rides very stiff now. But, BL are cheap and easy and if your not a big time wheeling guy its perfectly fine to go BL.

i dont regret mine at all....and the only thing that is hanging down is my exhaust and trailer hitch....which if i it bothered me that much id fabricate it so they were close to the body....the bumpers all get brought up with bumper brackets and the gap between the frame and the bed will look better if u just get gap guards

Ya I agree the frame is lifted but you only benefit for about 2.5-3' of the frame rails cause your torsion bars, key drop brackets' lower control arms all stay the same height as stock. Until you put bigger tires, and for $2000 dollars more by the time you buy the lift and new front driveshaft (cause stock slip yoke will vibrate too much cause of drive angle) your better off spending the money on rims & tires. But in the end it comes down to how much money your willing to spend and what you like not someone else right guys

Frame looks dont bother me at all because if you have a good looking truck and sexy tires it wont be noticed too much haha. Thanks guy, pics of the stock Dirt Devil to come once I get to a computer.
