what ever you do plan ahead and study your options this way you won;t be disapointed with ride quality, or future spending,
shop around there crazy sales out there, ppl aren;t lifting as crazy as a few years back, also a note if you still got any type of warranty check if this will affect it

Hey Dean, no worries bud, totally understandable, im not rushin anymore, due to a looming strike that looks like itll be a duzie. So ill give you a call then, thanks.

...eh, i dont wheel hard enough on this truck in order to justify the db kit, and for that price, sas appeals a little more to my tastes. i heartily appreciate the help though bud.

Here's another option, If all you want to do right now is clear a larger tire you can always put in a 3" body lift and a set of gap guards, and later add a suspension lift to it , this will able you to do it more in stages and would be more cost effective as well

Their is nothing wrong with a body lift, lots of people run them with no problems at all
is all good bud.. thats ur opinion... i have mine...i have personally witnessed/ fixed alot of customers with body lift "issues". the worst part about them is that the people who put them in are looking for a "cheap" lift..they dont have the tools and know how too ptu them in them selves adn body lifts require bi monthly torquing or u will run into troubles down the road

not a fan of...

increasing leverage on the body mounts.
box shifting
puttin steering "extensions" in ( damn scary if you ask me... cauze of usually no retourque)
shifter extensions... body flexs off road knocks out of gear ( VERY common occurence) the sloution too that is opening the hole in ur floor
the " fender gap covers" rub on ur frame cazuing it rust 2 months down the road
cheap extensions too lift ur front bumper.. completley useless in a collison
no extensions for rear bumper ( legality)..left too make ur own.. once again i would not sugest
lift the hood and ur ,motor is now three inches lower ( pain in the ass too work on)
ugly frame showing
stretching all factory wiring

thats about it off the top of my head....btw.. takes ya longer too put ina body lift than the average ifs suspension lift...

I personally prefer suspension lifts and have had a few trucks with body lifts and know people who run them with no problems whatsoever, if a body lift is put in correctly and is properly engineered, ( not a hockey puck or solid aluminum mount home made body lift) its no big deal, if it was such a big deal do you really think they would be for sale? and if body bolts come loose why not locktite them?, that would not require you to retourqe the bolts, , and most 3" kits come with the brackets to raise your rear bumper in the past a rear bumper was a option on a pickup or you could take it off and put on a roll pan if you wanted to, and the only factory wiring that is stretched usually has more than enough length anyhow so no big deal there either, and you say it's harder i say easier to work on your engine because of more room around the motor and underneath the truck. if your that short stand on a crate.


Here's pics of my truck and my F150 and my brothers Ram both with suspension and body lifts witch both have gap guards that don't make our frames rusty, and everything takes time to put on suspension or body lifts but some are more cost effective than others

can you see the frames on these trucks I cant.

I went to the states for my RCD kit and my wheels and tires. Theres a 4WheelDrive Parts in Lynnwood Washington they carry Superlift, about 20 mins. north of Seatle(about 2hrs from border). For a 2hr drive its worth it going south, sport truck or any other local shop cant come close to there prices. Even with duty (if you declare it) you'll still save. They have a warehouse in washington and with California just down the road parts can be in within a week compared to here where I've found there can be weeks of waiting for parts to come in. My brother just order a Fabtech lift for his 06 Ram through 4wheelparts, and is going down in 2 weeks to have it put in.
