Never done it mate, but just mimic what they would do on the real thing, that usually works with most mods.

I'd try the left-over sprue in the kits and if you have the THICK stuff, that be the best way if you ain't got any Evergreen Styrene shapes (thats how I'm gonna build a lift) but a body lift for me this time around on my "Dream Truck" build, will be a first..... I've always "lifted" by the suspension! That single one model, will be lifted in 2 completely different ways! -But to fit 44 inch TSL Super Swampers under it, is the reason for the lifting extremes -It'll look good when done I think!

Larry,
Yeah. you might get away with "lifting" it with the suspension for 38's..... thats whats on my truck in my Father & Son build.... 38's.... 62's? HOLY Heavens high man! -You'll need to go both ways, body lift as well as suspension for 62's.... Those might require a Monster Truck suspension!

You'd be better off trying to use those Jeep tires and rims you have I think...... those are all terrain tires and I THINK if you got the Jeep kit thats green on the box with working suspension, they come with bead-lock rims too!

NOT sure those off the Ford F-250 will work! At least for your application anyway....

I'm not familiar with the tires on that Ford F250...... -That the old blue kit Monogram made back in the 90's?

I'd LOVE to get my hands on a set of the tires from that green Jeep! Those tires be NICE under a '79 Dodge Ramcharger!

I have the TSL Super Swampers .... YES, BUT those tires on that Jeep are nice and those....aren't "Super Swampers" the tread, is a dead give away to that, BUT I have a few OTHER 4x4's those off that Jeep would looks GREAT on!

My TSL's tho, are definitely going under my '78 Power Wagon Dream Truck.....
