    2\" lift- Looking for inspirational pics...

    I can't believe I'm considering a lift on my '72k5! Just a minor one, anyone have pics they can e-mail me of 2"? Please include tire sizes so I can get the whole effect. ***Also, if it's purely for looks...body or suspension lift? Which is most economical?
    Thanks!

    You can't beat going Topless!

    If you are going just for looks a body lift is really cheap like $100.

    I don't have any pictures but when I bought my blazer it had a 2" block in the rear and an add-a-leaf up front. It cleared 33's with ease and could squeeze some 35 Mud Kings.

    Have you driven OVER a Ford lately?

    If there is a good spring shop in your area get them to rework a set of heavy duty springs. Its the best way to go. You will get 2 to 3 in of lift and more travel.With none of the handeling problems you get with a body lift, add a leaf or blocks. And a great ride off road. Of course its a lot more expensive but totally worth it.

    Well my truck has 2.5 inch rancho springs. it's close to 4 inches. That will clear 33's on your truck no problem. heck if it's staying on the street you could probably clear 35's. Hot ticket right now is Tuff county EZ's for the front for about $300 and shackle flip in the rear for about $100. Figure about another $150-$250 in various little parts like bushings for rear springs and shocks and steering correction. The truck will ride better than stock! www.offroaddesign.com can set you up!
