    I really want to put bigger tires on my burb, and since I have a sandrail now, I wont be beating up my burb as mush. I am thinking 38.5 or 39.5s. Anyways I have a 4" lift up front and 6" in the rear. I want to lift it a little more. Should I go the 1" or 2" body lift. I know lots of cutting to make stuff fit. I have never really been a big body lift fan, but I dont want to get this big truck too top heavy. If it was my Jimmy, I would just put a bigger suspension lift.

    I like my 2" body lift like MuddySub says. You can go to www.socalbigdawgs.com and check out the "Trail Reports" section. If you go to "8/31/02 Lake Silverwood & Holcomb Creek" you can see my Sub with the 6" suspension, 2" body lift and, 38" TSL Radials. I'm trying to get some pics of the body lift now that it's instaled.
