Is there now a 3" suspension lift offered by MarkMc?

If so, how do I go about ordering one and will the kit be fine without any other mods?

Thanks,

So in order for this kit to work, I have to get longer rear shocks? The hole in my wallet grows.. How much did those set you back?

I haven't found much on the 3 inch susp. Lift so I asked.. What else is the point of a forum? If you do not want to respond to my post, then don't. Mommy isn't standing over your shoulder making you.

Theres plenty of info on marks lift. If it applys to the 2.5" lift then it will apply to his 3" lift even more. It gets frustrating answering the same question time and time again. Thats why these forums have a search function. Learning to use the search function is an important part of any forum.

And i can understand that.. I'm no mechanic, so I was just trying to see if there were any mods needed. Apparently I need longer shocks which I was not told by Mark (he said no mods needed).

But I understand what you mean.. The other guy was just a bit douchey about it.

You dont need longer shocks, but you will want them if you use the lift and flex the truck. Sorry you are too lazy to search before asking. The lift I can understand since it is not as common, but the rear shocks are covered again and again.

well the kit does work with stock shocks and struts but anyone will suggest that you replace them while its all apart. The stock ones suck

Clearly, I am not a TB expert... yet. In the month or so that I have owned mine, I've been burning through the search feature on anything and everything that has crossed my mind relating to my new toy.

I have learned that there is tons of data on this site and the OffRoad TB site. What you will find once you start spending more time searching is, there really isn't one answer to any problem/design/idea/plan, whatever. The true value of digging through the info is making up your mind what is right for you by learning from the guys that have been at it longer than you. (Just like everything in life, actually.)

Of course, the other thing you will find out VERY quickly is there is always 'something else I must do' to your toy. Basic maintenance questions (what type of fluids are best, plugs, oil filters), lift options (I think you are on the right track with Mark's), shocks, springs, armor and bumper (get them from Mike), spare tire carrier(roof, hitch, swing on new rear bumper?), roof rack, etc. There just isn't enough money in the world.

Here is my advice...grab a legal pad and a pencil. Start making notes of what you want to do first, then search that topic. When you do that, you will likely find out that what you wanted to start with isn't what you need to start with, thus the pencil instead of a pen. As you find more and more stuff/topics/projects, write them down. Then you will see things like, "when changing out rear springs for Z-71 springs, I'll need longer rear shocks...what kind should I buy?" Another search, then when you decide, maybe your 'one thing' project will actually take 6 months of budgeting to get all the parts together.

Then, whatever your bank account/winning lottery ticket will allow, attack your projects in a logical order.

The experienced guys here are more than willing to help you out, they just want to be sure you are ready to listen/learn before they spend time trying to give you the benefit of their experience.

Well said. We are willing to help if someone does research and still has questions.
