The truck in my avatar had a 3"body lift with 35" bfg mud terrains I trimmed the front bumper a little bit and didn't have a problem.

If I were to do it over again I would do 3/4 ton torsion bars or torsion keys and 3/4 ton springs or blocks in the back with 33"s The over exposed frame with a body lift made me angry every time I looked at it as well as the 3" gap between the bed and frame and the 35"s sucked for gas in the dd.

I hear ups and downs do aftermarket keys actually give you a 2 inch lift on the 88-98 body's? What about using ford keys?
