I’ve always thought a body lift would be a good idea, but no one else will agree…. Why? I’d guess it’s cause most people are heavy offroaders and they need more flexibility like a suspension lift gives them. I don’t think I’ll need the extra flex, but I guess I don’t know yet.

What else would I need besides longer fuel/brake lines and a different steering shaft? I was already thinking about getting a different shaft cause mine was just a tad surface rusted…… so I figured it was worth having a new one. How much extended would it need to be?

Why would my drivetrain last longer? Cause the drive shafts angle isn’t so high? If I swapped in a cv shaft, my drivetrain would be fine with a suspension lift, right?

Also, from what I'm told, I believe I'm running 2:73 gears right now......... so I should be fine on the highway. 3:15 gearing would give me better acceleration actually. what would you guess my rpms would be @ 70 with a 360 and thm 400?
