    Not a bad looking grocery getter he just needs to get his facts right. It apears to have a 3" BODYLIFT AND A 5" SUSPENSION LIFT.

    but w/e...I have to agree that it would look pretty cool if he would drop some of that body lift.

    Wait a sec..... I think he does have his ad right. The NBS chevys have the hitch touching the bumper and when you put a body lift on them they come with spacers for the hitch. If you look at the exhaust it goes right between the bumper and the hitch. Lets say the tips are hummmmmmmmm...... 2 1/2" tips. Well if you look at the space inbetween them and the bumper I say that it porbably is a 5" body lift. You can also see the spacer that is between the bumper and the hitch right under the license plate. Looks bigger than 3" to me.

    Also you can see that the bottom of the front brush guard/light bar is supposed to be next to the fog lights. That looks alot more than 3" space.

    Opps!

    I think you got me on that one.:bow: I just looked at the fender wells and saw about 2" of block and figured o i must be a typo. But now after further inspection I realize that he actually has the gap gaurds on it as well. SO i agree, What a DUMBA$$! Would still be a fun dd/grocery getter if it was the other way around or even just a 3" body.

    I agree I think this guy is a dumba**. I don't know why he just didn't go with a 6" suspension and a 2 or 3" body.

    because a 6" lift is going to require more work than a 2-3" lift...a bagillion inch body lift is easier than getting new drifeshafts cut, extending lines, etc.

    Yeah I realize that but I guess what I was getting at is 5" body lift ISN'T SAFE. I don't know why he would put himself in that position. I have a 3" body lift on my 96 1/2 ton and I can tell it is alot more top heavy. With the suspension lift it will atleast feel a little more stable than having the body almost a 1/2 a foot above the frame.

    Haha. I didn't notice it was 2wd either.
    That makes it even more histerical. Why would you do that, and better yet, it's obviously his dream truck, why would he sell it? Perhaps it drives and handles too good for him?
