UMMMMM ohhh thats garden edging. I put that on for temporary cause I got hastled by the cops.It was cheaper than the $10. I would have had to pay for the sticker for the MVI I asked him to give me. By the way I think that used to be my buddies truck.Does ithave an awsome heavy duty wood floor in the box.

i dont know if its heavy duty or not. i havent seen a other truck like mine so i dont have anything to compair it too. what was your buddys name and how long ago did he have it. cause i have had the truck for 4yrs now and it looked a little different when i got it. it could have been though. where is he from? besides all that, i have a question for you. im running a 6inch susp and im going to be putting in a 3inch body lift. do you think i will have enough clearence for my 38.5x15x16r boggers? how much lift you running on yours? i would like to know cause i need to order my shocks before the end of the month and i dont know if i have to go higher with the susp or not. thank

His name Is Chad and he lived in Maple Ridge when he sold it.I've got a 4" lift and running 35" Mud TA's. Personaly I'm dead set against body lifts and would just buck up for suspension.

hmm i dont think thats the same guy. what kinda work did he do? as for the body lift i really dont want to do it. how much more susp do you think i will need? and would you just get all new springs or could i get them re-arked with add-a-leafs, or a reverse shackel in the rear and drop brackets in the front with a little longer drop shackel?? i was having a hard time getting a bigger lift than my 6inch for the 72 and i dont want to cut, thats why i just thought a body lift would be easier. its a 2inch not a 3 sorry about that.

runin 38's on my 69 .4" shackle reversal rear with 2" blocks and 64" springs out of a 95 chevy 1/2 ton- 3 leafs plus overload wich I arched up 3 inchs.

rear leafs saged a bit probably 2 " so ballbark I have a 7" lift in the back It rubs slightly under full flex
front I have 56" springs approx 6" my spring hangers dropped an inch and I have extra cut down leaf in front for leveling purpose.

I dont think you will fit 38's on a 6" add the 2" body if you have too
Do NOT arch your leafs they will sag and usually not evenly. pita!!!

thanks lucas. i kow i wont be able to fix them with just the 6 inch, thats wy i have to get a body lift. i might add a leaf but not going to ark. like i said the bodys in way too good of shape to be cutting it so i either have to get bigger springs or just add the body lift. so for now its just going to be that. got a call from the tire gods and they will be here wed. counting the days

there is nothing wrong with a bodylift other then it takes a ton of work to do nicely
your CG will be lower with a bodylift then the same lift in suspension
