Question... 3 inch bl or 4 inch suspension? Body lift would be 200 and suspension lift close to 5... Which would be easier to install? I'm hesitant of a bl because I would have to do it myself (no friends that are into that stuff) and I feel the suspension lift would be easier.

I recommend going suspension lift. I went the body lift rout and wish I had gone with the suspension lift. And my understanding is that the suspension lifts tend to be a little easier to do.

I want to go suspension. But a 3 inch body lift is more in my budget. We'll have to see what it's looking like when I get a new job soon.

If only yours was a couple years newer, you could get 4" spindles for $300!

I wish I had a 3rd gen. Much easier/cheaper to gain suspension travel
