Welcome to CF.

Have you installed the wheels to see if the fit?

Fabtech makes a 6" lift.

hey mike no i have not fitted the wheels yet there still on there way by sea freight i know i will have to cut some of the inner guard cause of the -25 offset but with the lift i want they should be fine.

i will check out the fabtech kit i noticed you had a 3" body lift was this easy to install how do bumpers and everything look afterwards i was also wondering about transmisssion shifter height and other things that are effect by the body height being raised?

Most of the 3" body is easy. It comes with relocation brackets for the bumpers. The rear bumper relocation bracket is the hard part of the lift. You would be better off having an after-market bumper made.

you may have to do some diy fab for the 3" body lift in regards to the fuel filler hose (looks like it might be ok as its still got some room left after a 2" bl) and possibly the radiator hoses. The reason why i say diy is because the off the shelf kits i know of are for the gasoline motor powered D40's.

All of the diff drop bracket lifts i see members on here with usually complain about their construction. The only one that does not seem to have an issue with quality or strength is the SLR or now PRG (if i remember reading correctly) drop bracket which you would have to wait a little while longer on. If you do not do any serious offroading however the Fabtech and Calmini ones should be fine.

Thanks for that info guys looks like it will be a drop down kit and a 2" BL!!

It will see the beach or bush on the odd occasion but mainly be to tow my race tralier and cruise the coast roads so this should be stronger enough for what it will be doing.
