    Wit the 4" rancho you can run stock rims. With the 6" most Lifts say run 4.5" bs. To measure your bs take the rim off the truck, lay it face down. Lay a flat object on the rim, so that it is roughing the rim not sitting off the rim and on the tire. The distance from the lip of the back side of the tim to the mounting surface is your back space. I put a thread in the wheel section that shows charts for bs and offset by wheel depth and size.

    I haven't heard anything good about body lifts. And actually read a couple 4x magazines where they had articles on how to remove body lifts...

    the body lift of today is different than the ones they use to make. bl use to be crap and was nothing but blocks a new bolts,the ones today if properly installed are great. follow the instructions exactly to torque and you will be pleased.
