Hello the body lift would look , perfect, I have that 3 inch lift (suspension) and it needs just 3 more inches to look right ,The tires to me sit too close to the fenders,I am going with a 3 inch body lift..
I tell you what bubba what I did was scrap my 3in spacers for 3in lift springs from skyjacker rides really well, not so spongy anymore. The stock spring I though were weak. To bad the springs were red though I would rather have had black to match the rest of the under side. Cleanlyness is next to godlyness I say.
You can fit 33's with a 3 inch lift i have a 3 inch fabtech suspension lift and my 33"s fit fine but then again i also had to get coil spring spacers cause they were just barely rubbing on the front bumper. Oh well im glad i got the spacers anyways it gives the truck this mean ass stance.
I called rough country about the $310 3 inch lift. They basically said you cant do the lift without buying new upper control arms, which arent even listed on their site. The guy quoted me $595 for the kit including new upper contol arms, plus shipping. Does anyone have the rough country kit without the contol arms? Id like to know and what their results with it were.
I have the rough country lift without the controll arms, 88,000, today and still going, put it on , the day after I bought it, went to the alignment shop to a buddy of mine to hear the bad news, but there was none, aligned up perfect, with a small amount to go on the specs, now everyone elses might be different, but mine is a 1/2 ton extended cab, 318, 2wd with 33s on it ,it is the readers rides or here it is:
Nice ride Bullram. My truck looks almost exactly the same, except im in Flame Red. Same rims and tires and body style though! Do your 285's rub at all? With the 2 inch spacers, i have the tiniest amount of rubbing, so im thinking you probably have none.
