that bt has a 3'' body lift on it, if you dont want body lift then your other alternative is a suspension kit,

cheap way = Spacers = low quality performance/ride/articulation

expensive way = Lift kit = great quality all round

Why do you want the lift? For off road use or for the increased ride height?

If it is just for the increased ride height, then the body lift would be your best option. You keep the full factory reliable suspension / parts etc and get the height you want. Doing the body lift on those is pretty easy and can cost you around $2000 - $3000 depending where you go etc etc..

Suspension kits will be better for off road use, but will cost a lot more..

it is done by lifting the cab and tray and placing blocks between the body mounts and chassis with the use of longer bolts, for different vehicles and varying amounts of lift, the work load is different, some may have to drop radiator, extend steering, hoses, etc, it can easily go from a simple job to alot of work......

but nonetheless we handle them to suit, 2"-3" are the most common ones ive done so far....

A Side B member had done a 3" on his new model hilux and didn't get any issues after. 2" would be even safer. The body / tray lift itself was simple. A steering extension will be required if I remember correctly.

Talk to Droppa, he should be able to sort you out..

To do that lift like in the pic, was any modifications such as extending the steering column or extending the fuel filling hose to the tank? I am interested in lifting my mazda bt-50 and hearing that there is a possibility that these modifications may also need to be done. Can anyone confirm? Thanks

Yes and yes, also bumpers have to be adjusted, radiator has a mod to do to drop it and a small mod to the shifters as well, Mazda/ford has the most work IMHO!

What about the 06 Hilux? Also what cost(s) for both a 2" and a 3" body lift?
Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. Got a couple more questions:

What are the biggiest tyres that I can fit on my bt50 (2007/2008 model), I have already cranked up the torsion bars to level out the van. Currently have 265/70/16 on it

I was speaking to Deans Wheels and they have a 3inch lift kit, but it is put below the suspension areas instead of between the body and chasis, they said no extension of steering, radiator etc is needed. Anyone have any experiences with this?

Thanks

yes they have a balljoint spacer kit, but it has some defects, pm user whyteboi here, he has one and the bolts failed a few times, luckiy he was arms length from home......

also be careful of the amt u crank the torsions, another guy over carnked his to level out and busted all the control arm bushings......he had to slacken it back a bit......


should get an undersized 32 to fit stock on stock rims, lower offset rims will cause scrubbing.....

Thanks again for the feedback. When I saw the kit at dean's wheels, I was a bit concerned when I saw the bolt, thinking that it would be a lot of pressure being put on that bolt. Was hoping to lift with minimal modifications to other parts, not saying that all the extensions of steering column, etc can't be done properly with no issues, just not sure if I want to take that chance just yet hahahaa. But we will see.

Maybe I will just get the biggest off road tyre I can get for now, and think about this lifting thing some more for the best option.

steering colum mod is not that bad, my machinist usually cuts it, and will either pin or sleeve it, align to tru centre on the lathe then weld off, did a good few, Mazda and Hilux and those are daily drivers, and also do alot of offroad and no issues so far.............
