Opinions are kinda like assholes......everybody has one. As it's a 84 you've got a solid front axle so you are starting with a good front-end. How's the frame? Is this a truck you wanna put money into? I'd say ditch the body lift fer sure, never been fond of them myself. But you might still need to run one depending on the lift to fit the tires you want. Do it right the first time and they will be no redoing of anything. I know clear as mud, but in the end it's your truck and only you know what you can afford and want as a finished project.

body lift out, go with new springs, mabey a inch or 2 bigger, hack the fuck outta the fenders and stick 37s on, but i wouldnt run 37s with that dead tired 22RE, at least put a v8 in it before you go with 37s,

keep the body lift, it give you tons of extra room under there.

4x4's are just a money pit. Save yourself some anguish and just give me the truck.

like b said take 2inchs of the body lift out. cut the blocks down to 1inch.

Buy HIGHSTEER

make or buy 2inch lift shackles.

upgrade your front diff and get some gears.

once thats done. make or buy a new front spring hanger and mount it a inch or two farther forward. Minor trimming may be required but you should be able to fit 37's.


DO NOT BUY bigger leaf springs. 5inch is the max you need or should go.
