    If your 3" lift is a body lift, the I'd personally go 6" suspension lift. I like em high.

    i wanna get bigger, and am working with someone to get 38's, but i need to add inches before i get the tires... if i added 4 more inches, that would be great, but i need a kit, do you know of any ideas that are somewhat inexpensive and have all the parts?
    thanks a bunch

    3" of lift is fine, *fender trim* to fit BIG tires. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Either go 6" lift with a 3" body lift or be ready to do some fender trimming with a 4" lift + 3" body lift. I am assuming the 3" lift you already have is a body lift.

    hmmmm...that sucks, because I have 6 and 3 with 38.5's and I had to do a lot of trimmin, looks kinda like the yellow blazer above.
