    Ok, lets say I manage to level out my '92 dodge and still want to bring it up a bit more....

    Has anyone installed a body-lift kit?

    Is it do-able on my truck?

    Easiest way to get height is with a body lift. It is easy to do, very easy to do. I looked on Summit for a kit for your truck but all of the kits they stock skip model years 91-93. With some searching you should be able to track one down. Probably shouldn'y cost you over a couple hundred bucks.

    If you are going for bigger tires remember that you will wear out your tranny if you don't swap your ring and pinion. Anything over a 33" tire will wear out your tranny.

    bosy lifts suck, suspension lifts are better, but alot more expensive. www.4wheelparts.com has probably the best prices for what you need, but why are you lifting it? to fit bigger tires undar there?

    The reason I want to do it is because Dodge's "nose-down" look is ugly as hell. Plus bigger tires would be nice.

    a body lift is only going to bring up the body 2-3" but u will still have the nose down look

    I recently purchased superduty coils that should help with that. Not installed yet...

    Just found a guy here in town that says he has "leveled" 1st gen Dodges before using Daystar coil spacers (for a '94?) and longer shocks. He says that the total for the job includes parts/alignment and runs about $500.

    Other 1st gn Dodge owners - I'll keep you posted!
