Has anyone used a 3 inch body lift with a 4 inch suspension lift?

    Just wondering had anyone done it and if so post some pics? I went with a 4 inch to avoid subframe cutting and was looking for possibly a little more clearance, and can't find much info.

    I would think a 7" bds kit does that....but if u are extending it that high, I believe u need to do some work on the frame? At least, that's what I heard...and If u touch the frame ur warranty (factory) is gone presuming u fall under it.

    No body lift here and wouldn't ever put one on so haven't done the research. Sorry I'm not much help.

    Some drop bracket lifts require cutting the frame crossmember. Some just bolt on. I know Fabtech ones require cutting. Not sure about the rest.

    The fabtech 4 didn't require any cutting that is why I went with it, it had a 1 in diff drop and just wondering if the body lift would be possible

    Fabtech 6" for my 07 Tacoma did require cutting because they wanted to keep the clearance higher than the others.

    rafts another reason why I'm staying 4" on this. I would rather not touch the frame and have to fight with them if a warranty issue comes up.

    Maybe I'm getting too far ahead of myself, I had better first get my 35's and see how I like the stance then.

    4" lift will fit 35s with minor plastic cutting in the wheel well. Sean had and I have a 3" lift with 35s. Fit just fine. I would like a little extra height but not needed with the 35s.
