Body lift & towing ?
Posted 07 April 2003 - 11:53 AM
I use my truck to pull our camper,horse trailer, and a 6x12 at times.
If the body lift will lower my overall towing capacity, then I'll have to look into a suspension lift, and not a body lift.
Thanks for any information!!

Even with no lift I wouldn't use the bumper to haul/tow anything. The ONLY thing you can't do when you have a BODY lift installed it tow a 5th wheel trailer (the ones that hook into the truck bed). No loss for me because I don't even own one (nor do I even want one). Always use an after market hitch. At least for the 1500. I don't know about the HD's. One thing I though was wierd is that I called 4wheel parts for a price on the body lift and they would not install it after the suspension lift. I just called to do a price compair but that was wierd. Good luck!
For all of those who has a body lift, with the hitch spacers due you lose any amount of towing weight? I know once you lift the truck you cant use the bumber anymore for towing.
