PostSubject: 1" Body Lift   Sun 29 Aug 2010, 3:00 pm

Thinking about getting a 1" Body Lift. Any particular brand I should look at? Daystar, M.O.R.E, RC, etc? It looks like most folks run the M.O.R.E. kit. Any cons to a 1" BL other than the gap above the rear bumper?

Background info to support my question above: I am currently running stock Rubi suspension, tires, and wheels with a TeraFlex Leveling Kit. I am thinking about moving up to 33s. My plans all along have been to get the TeraFlex 2.5" Coil Lift since it is affordable and good quality but now I am thinking about a 1" BL instead. A few years down the road I may move into 35s - when the kids can get in themselves and I feel like dropping another $1500-$2k for gears, gussets, and tire carrier. If I do go to 35s, then I would probably want another 1" or so on top of the 2.5" coil lift - either a 1" BL or the TeraFlex 3" lift (which would probably put me into getting control arms, adjustable track bar, etc). At least these are my thoughts right now. I probably don't need the 1" BL for 33s but may get it if the fenders look too stuffed (without cutting fenders). Basically, I am trying to avoid getting the 2.5" Coil lift now (in a few months) and then wishing I had got more lift if I do go to 35s (this would be when the 33s are bald).

Thanks!

M.O.R.E 1" seems to be the most popular body lift. I myself dont like body lifts because of the gap it makes between frame and body.
Just my .02

with a 1" BL the gap should not be bad. I'd say go with the BL until you're ready to move into 35 or 37s. with 33s and a 2.5" lift, I was not happy with how small the 33s looked in the wheel wells.
