Default T-Bar + Body Lift

I have a 2002 V6 4.0 XLT 4X4 and I recently purchased a 3" Body Lift but I was wondering how adding a 2"-3" TBar crank would look and possibly effect the ride. Do any of you all have this set up and if so how is the ride and appearance?

Cranking the T-bars will make the front stiffer for sure. I just cranked T-bars to level it out.

Body lift isn't going to effect the ride at all

Tbar crank is gonna make it ride stiffer. It's progressive, so then not you adjust the torsion bars the worse the ride will get.

You'll never get 3" out of the stock suspension. It's just not designed for that much adjustment. 1.5-2" is about the max.

I have 2" t-bar and 3" body lift and it rides OK. The type of tire you have will make a big difference on how it rides too. I had Toyos, with very stiff side walls, and it rode much harsher than it does now with the Ironmans I have on it.
