    Should I go with a 3\" body lift too??

    Since I have my gas tank out, I was scoping out the rear body bolts and thinking. I'm trying to decide if I should slap my body lift on my truck while the tank is out. It's just sitting in my room since I bought the lift and don't know what to do. I don't know how it would look with 9" lift and 35's. My friend is running 9" with 35's and it doesn't look that bad, but some people say he needs more tire. How hard is it to put a body lift on properly?? Is it worth my effort though?? Thanks

    A body lift isn't that hard to install. Go to http:// espen.coloradok5.com and it will tell you what to do. I think you should run 38s instead of the 35s but its your decision.

    If you install the body lift there are other things you might have to do also,like longer steeing shaft maybe have to extend your fuel inlet hose from the body to the tank.Then there are all those linkages to adjust.
    But if you plan to run a biger tire latter then you should do it now.
    Hope this helps.


    IF IT AINT BIG IT AINT BAD!!!!!!
