ok, I am new to the site and had a few questions. I have a 2001 supercrew 4x4 with a 5.4 in it. I was wondering about the 3" body lift on these trucks. I do tow with the truck and the truck see's ALOT of off road. I do not have the money for the suspension lift and am wanting to fit larger tires. Will the body lift last or is it going to be something that I will regret? Any help or suggestions would be greatly apprciated.

If your doing some major off roading I wouldn't use a body lift, but I see that your only using a 3in, so it would probaly be alright, as long as its done right.

I'm not much of one to lift trucks, but I don't completely agree with body lifts. Makes the truck more top heavy with the same suspension set-up, just a lil' fact that makes me not like body lifts. Since its only 3"(s) One ton Avenger is right, If done correctly you'll be fine.
