hi drummer, I can certainly assist you.
Which truck were you referring to as there are many in this thread?
Either way, send me an email and we can build you truck very similarly with either a suspension lift or level/body lift

If you are only going to be using your truck in the city and not offroading, a level/body lift may be your ticket as it is cheaper.
However installation (if you dont do it yourself) is similar $$ wise to a suspension lift

send me an email and we can go over this fastNugly@bullysperformance.com

Thanks for replying to my post. I have sent you an email with more specifics and a picture of the truck I was referring to. I am still getting out the kinks of posting on this forum. Thanks for your patience.

I am in the same city driving condition as you. I wanted a lift, but still wanted to be somewhat economical and able to park in my garage at home as well as parking garages. I went with the 3" body lift and havent looked back since. To me it is the PERFECT amount of lift to really set this truck off.

Here's what my personal thoughts are on lifting and what lifts to use. Spend the money and do a suspension lift first. That's the proper way to do it. Then if you want more height on top of the suspension lift add a body lift. Everyone has their own opinions but to me it just doesn't make any sense to do a body lift before doing a suspension lift. It just seems a little half assed to me.

I'm sure Andrew gave you a bunch of information regarding pricing so I won't go into huge detail there. Obviously a suspension lift is a lot more money than a body lift but definitely worth it.

I average 14.5mpg on paper if I'm easy on it, and 13.1mpg if I drive it like it wants to be driven. Thats with 50/50 city and highway with the lift, 35s, Vararam, Moe's throttle body, and exhaust cutout open almost all the time.

Hoping for 16mpg-ish with DiabloSport and HemiFever, if they ever release the damn thing.
