    I have a 6inch skyjacker lift and a 1 inch ORD body lift and I love it. I use to have a 2 inch body on it but I was able to get rid of an inch. The 2 inch body was also fine.

    I'm envious of your truck. I really like that solid gloss black look. Perfect combo of lift height and tires, too. You've got something to be proud of. Nice /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    When do you get the black rock krawler rims?

    Oh, yeah...and to not be way off the subject of the post, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a suspension lift/body lift combo. Many people run it. Just use common sense. 14" suspension lift and 4" body lift would NOT be okay. Yeah, maybe I'm exaggerating a little much, but you get the idea.
