Is it really worth it if so many modifications are required?

YES! Whilst it can be daunting looking at the list of POSSIBLE modifications, keep in mind not everything is always required or necessary. It will depend on your vehicle, accessories and how high you lift (lower=easier). Everyone I've spoke to after they've completed a BL have said it was much easier than they expected.

Here's the reasons why a BL can be better than attempting to lift an IFS vehicle 3-4" or higher:

  • Body lifts do not have moving parts to wear out. Large suspension lifts can cause huge reductions of part life and increases of failures (ball joints, bushings, CVs, etc). Body lifts are installed once and almost forgotten. It's worth periodically checking the bolt tension, but I have yet to hear of any bodymount-tearing disaster stories arising from BL's on a Toyota 90 series.
  • It will allow larger tyres to fit on your vehicle - after all, larger tyres is the only way to increase diff clearance on your vehicle.
  • Much cheaper than any other alternative, especially over the long term.
  • It raises the body sills from potential damage. Potentially also raises the front and rear bumpers/bars (dependant on your mods). I've ran a 1.5" BL for years without rock sliders, on countless rock crawling trips - yet my sills have never been damaged!
  • It raises the rear fuel tank. If you also raise the guard, you gain clearance.
