Default 98.5 Body Lift

Hey guys, I got a set off 20 inch rims with 325/60 20 Nitto tires on them. For free! (family thing) Anyway, they look BAD@#S on my truck. Here's the problem. I can't turn much without rubbing. I put a leveling kit on it awhile back that was supposed to make 35 inch tires clear. Not a chance. I want a body lift now. Anybody know where I can find a good price for a 3 inch body lift for my truck? Having a hard time finding one for a diesel with an automatic tranny. Thanks fellas.

Do you serve a purpose or just purposely serve?

Performance accessories should sell them. If you do a google search on a 3" body lift it should come up on who sells them as well. I would go with a 4" suspension lift, body lift isn't really worth the hassle, alot of modification have to be made. If you are getting someone to install the body lift it isn't cheap.

4" lift plus install would probably cost less than just install on the body lift. If you mechanically inclined a 4" isn't half as hard to install as a body lift. Just my 2 cents.

Body lifts suck.....I had one on my Dakota and never again. They can cause cooling problems because teh radiator is moved up from the fan, wiring issues because of stratching the wires, brake lines and other things.....
