hey man , whatever ur building, in my opinion its always better to get a suspesion lift first, then if you still want bigger do a body, but they are not as safe after years of abuse. and since urs is a daily driver you want it safe all the time. not saying b-lifts arent safe, just not as safe as a suspension.

well not to be against any lift but i would rather put a susp lift before i install a body lift just like the outher person said if you use it as a daily driver just like i do it will put some wear on the mounts(body) no matter what anybody says you do raise the center of gravity as what as i was told. i was going to do the same thing but i left mine stock :cool lus you have to take in account gearing, engine size,

A suspension lift will do you better off road, but cost more. A budget boost cost only $70 but you have a few mods to do, life grinding here and there. Either will give you height you want, it just depeds on how much you want to spend.

yeah, i decided to do it right,rather than 1/2 way do it.i'm gonna go with the susp. lift first.if that is not big enough,might look at a bl.will certainly have to address the gears,axles and other issues.there is plenty of time for that.i'm just doing it piece by piece as there is time and $.
