I'm going to get a used 2000 chevy silverado and i have about 4000-6000$ to spend on a lift and tires. I want to get the lift as high as i can with good tires and wheels to fit the body without going over my limit. I was thinking a 3'' body lift with a 6'' suspension cranked to a 8''? What do you think i should get?

im assuming 4x4 since you are talking about cranking the bars. If your going to offroad alot id recommend the usual 6+3 and 36x14.50 or 37s. if not much offroad do 9.5 FT and a body lift with 39.5x15 STS

Don't do 39.5 if you're at 13". You will rub if you're on a 10+ rim. Stick with 38's if you go with that setup.

I agree, I would do a 6+3 OR just the 9.5" FT and 36x14.50s, it would be the kindest thing to your IFS :grin:

full throttle is a suspension company, they make a 6", 9.5" and 12" lift. The 9.5" lift is exactly that, a 9.5" suspension lift. Look in the tech articles area for lift specs on the 99+ half tons, all lifts are listed there.

blocks come with some of the kits, you dont need to buy anything extra. "keys" are ford torsion bar keys, they allow you to crank the front up a little higher. Yes, you could still get a bodylift.

everyone says 13 inches isnt enough to clear 39.5s on the street....however nubluz71 runs a ten inch whiplash with 39.5 STS on 10 inch wide rims and he doesnt rub at all onroad, Offroad of course.
