Why are you back tracking? Have you gone overboard?

Na, dont need it for one, and secondly they cause more clunks and bangs and stress on the body itself where it mounts.

Magic,

I currently am running 3" suspension lift in my 03 patrol. SOLID, is what I have to say about it. Being in QLD with the new road legal laws they have, 3" was all I could go with a new vehicle before voiding warranty. Wheel articulation is one of the best I have seen for a family tourer and the ride and height is second to none. I havnt gone the body lift as I dont need it for my vehicle or for my needs. Highly recommend the suspension lift.

Go suspention lift usually to much extra work to do body lift.
Also with body lift on alot of cars the bullbar and steps all stay low and it leaves a big gap which can look ugly.
Do a search there are alot about this topic

It depends on what you want out of your truck.
Generally you can only do one and I reckon suspension is first.
High CG is a real concern if you are still expect good handling from the truck. It's all a trade off..
