Im wanting to lift my 2000 X and was trying to figure out which way would be best. Ive done a 1" PML now but I need more lift. also, im trying to figure out how to add a pix as my main picture for my profile. any help? thanks, Matt
Type of lift you want depends on what size tires you want to run... All the body lift does is lift the body away from the frame to clear bigger tires so if you want to at some point run 33s (or 285/75R16 in metric size) like most of us, do the body lift. If you're happy with stock sized tires, do the suspension lift (UCAs plus add-a-leaf).

Oh OK. Yea I'm trying to give my x a better look. Do y'all got any suggestions? I know talks look like y'all have done alit to yall's.
The BL is to fit larger tires....so that one is best if you want larger tires.
The SL is to raise the frame...so that one is best if you want to raise the frame.
"BEST" is based on what its FOR....
If all you want is to look taller in the mall parking lot, its a lot cheaper to do a 2-3" BL than a 3" SL, AND, with the BL, you can add larger tires, which lift you up even higher.
For example - If your stock tires are 29", going to 33's lifts the entire rig, diffs, axles, body, frame, etc...about 2" higher.
If you also did a 2" BL to FIT the 33's, you are 2" taller from that as well, for a total of 4" added height over where you are now.
If you already have a PML (1" SL), adding UCA/3" SL will raise you a total of 2", and you could fit up to a 32" tire...which would lift you about 1.5", for a total added height of ~ 3.5" over where you are now.
If you want it to work best off road, you do BOTH of course.
Now if I do the 2" Puck lift, do I need to drop my radiator too? Cuz the kit I had looked at said it comes with a radiator drop kit. And what's a good/affordable SL kit? Cuz all I've seen is like calamini and its like $1200 for 3"
