Default Does a Bodylift Affect Shocks? and other questions....

I just bought a Summit 3" bodylift for my truck and also new Rancho shocks. I bought the shocks for the stock height. Did I buy the wrong shocks? If I crank the t-bars will that affect the shock length?

On a related note. When lifting a truck with fog lights, will I need to trim anything?

shocks and such your fine, the fogs i believe if its like the older rangers you need to do a bit of trimming. but it could be different with the newer ones since the fogs are smaller than the 2000 and older ones. but if your 4x4 you might have tow hooks which means you have to trim the valance.

Like they said shocks are fine. Fogs should be fine too. If your worried just unplug them while you lift it.

Do yall know if there's a write up on how to properly trim the valence for tow hooks or is it pretty self explanatory? I just got a new bumper and I'm not looking to mess it up lol
