    I have been told and read that body lifts are not recommended to use with suspension lifts yet i see just about everyone doing this. If I decide to put on a 2" body lift, the only thing that I can think of off the top of my head is that i'm going to have to deal with the steering column being lenghened. Is this true and is there anything else?

    fan shroud, shift linkage, wiring harness, brakelines, vent lines, gas filler neck.... all things to watch when doing a lift.

    thing that have to be modified are shift linkage and bumpers. Also the gas-filler neck. YOu need to loosen the steering column up also.

    Go for the 1" ORD body lift.. There are really no gaps. I had to lenghten the tranny linkage,and cut the tailgate springs..Also trim the fan shroud. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
