would a 1.5" body lift and .5" torsion bar lift be better than just doing a 2" body lift? what do you guys think? <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

Cranking the torsion bars will do you a disservice in the wheel travel department, not that you have much to start out with. But, why make it worse? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

A 1.5" body lift would fit 33's with some crafty sawzall work!! <IMG SRC="smilies/trooper.gif" border="0">

look at my sig line. Just pound in the fender seams in front so you don't chew up your tires at full stuff..

Body Lifts arent bad at all. Im using a 3" under my 4runner. I will be able to tuck the 4.3 and the rest of the drivetrain up in it, be able to run my tailgate(bobed 12") mount my bumpers and sliders right off the frame ect...Plus I already have cut fenders,pounded seams, front axle moved forward and I can still rub 36"'s easy. I will have D60's and 40's under my 4runner so with out the body lift I would have to do major surgery. I still even have to cut more out to still be able to tuck the 40's. Something like these

2"BL & 38's

3"BL & 42's

Both on D60's too

Go for it

i always thought a body lift was <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> , then i bought a budbuilt xcase croswmember bentup 2 inches higher and some motor mount spacers from roger brown. very effective additional 5 inches of belly clearance!!!!!!! it takes 10 extra inches of tire or 5 more inches of suspension lift to get that elsewhere in your buildup...

you can fit 33's with a 1 inch body lift, small shackle lift in back and some minor fender pounding. But you can't go wider than 10.5. Wider than that and you need new wheels.

cranking torsion bars won't wear your tires faster. that just pushes the a-arms down.

as far as fitting 33's, i have a 90 4 runner and ran my 33x10.5 super swappers at stock, sagging butt, height with no rubbing :eek: and no need of a sledge hammer and sawsall and still showed up jeeps!

After cranking the torsion bars, it is a good idea to have your truck realigned because it changes the angle of your A arms, which in effect changes your camber, which would wear out one side of your tires faster. If you plan on wheeling it with the two inch body lift and no fender modifications, the tires will "self fit", which will either be more ugly or better looking (depending on how you look at it) than trimming the fenders. During my SAS I moved the axle forward 2" and compensated by trimming the fenders and front bumper 5" forward. I already had a 3 " body lift, which will allow room for the drivetrain lift, as mentioned above.
