Body lift may be cheaper but suspension is the way to go. I personally don't like seeing the frame sitting way below the body. To me it looks cheap.

There's nothing wrong with body lifts. I really don't understand why so many people think suspension lifts are so much better. Neither type of lift gains any suspension travel, and all they do is allow you to run bigger tires.

As a matter of fact, if you put a nerf bar or slider on the truck the frame down the side isn't that noticeable at all. I do agree though that it does look pretty shitty if you don't put anything on it though. But to each his own.

I don't know why they don't market one for auto's though but it's pretty easy to figure out as there is only one difference between the trucks, the transmission. I would guess the problem areas are the shifters and the cooler up front. I don't really know what you could do to fix the shifters...

Yes but if you're gonna spend that much money why not just get a custom built off-road truck with all of that done to it already with a supercharged V8 in it?

I mean, if money is no object and all...

get a hold of Roger Brown at 4crawler and you will see that he makes body lifts and adapters for the automatic trans people.

the reason most dont make them for the auto is bacause te shifter linkage will no longer reach the trans after the lift is installed.
