remember you will also raise your center of gravity, stability will be affected. Also if you pull of ever pull a gooseneck this will make things difficult to level the trailer as well as hook up. You will need some modifications.

i drive a 2006 Silverado crewcab, with a 7inch suspension and a 3inch body lift with 36" super swamper Irok tires on 20" rims. I use it daily. It draws attention i have gotten 5 customers because they said my truck caught there attention and made me stand out

It may look cool but its so impracticle. You cant do anything with it. Its just a show off truck. Its like woo wee you wowed me now no one cares. So you have all this money in this truck for what? I dont know thats just my thoughts.

Man, that thing is COOL!

I am really thinking about lifting up my Ranger some and putting bigger tires on it, but I dont know if I want to put that much money in a truck I am not all that attached to. Would really like to trade that off in a couple years and get a Z71 or a F250, and then "redneck up" that truck.
