I am guessing steering radius and flex has a little something to do with it.......

i do want a lift but only one i found was from superlift and id still have to upgrade the front driveshaft, i was hopin to find some other kits but it seems everything out there is for a 2wd, that or a bunch of body lifts, im gona get rear fenders and a front one piece from fiberwerx im gona go for the prerunner look, if anyone has any ideas where to find some quality lift kits that can actually be beat on at high speeds let me kno, and yea my turning radius sucks but its not too bad

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

Most people (at least the ones who know what they are doing) dont say its impossible, they say dont do it because your CV shafts wont last long.

Body lift r not as bad as you think I got my truck with one and I think it a good system the only down side is that the motor is farther down but you should really consider one you ll be happy

It's also a lot cheaper than a 2000 dollar super lift after you buy the drive shaft your wallet will thank you

Use a cutoff wheel to cut your fenders, I've done jigsaw sazall and cutoff wheel, defiantly like the cutoff wheel best and also do little cuts in the fender an inch or so long to fold in for a lip.

looks badass.

i say no lift, and see where the fiberglass fenders put you at for flex/turning radius.

love the look of big tires, on low center of gravity.
