my favorite part, body lifts are now illegal in the state of CA, and you can get a fix it ticket for having one. finally, a law in this state that doesnt suck.

I haven't heard that. Do you have the vehicle code for that?

for now, i have that which says over 5" from top of frame to bottom of body is illegal. i'll keep digging through the cvc, and i asked my friend who knows a guy who did get a ticket for it

I think the point here is that people with body lifts usually don't leave pavement... Meaning if they get stuck they must be driving a Found On Road Dead(No offense, I drive a ford/mazda)

I dont think that is the point at all. A body lift in my eyes is to gain an extra X inches of space to allow for tires/wheel travel. It doesn't mean your truck is useless by any means. I know people that have gone with suspension and body lifts. Body lifts cost excessively less and are way easier to install. Its a budget friendly way to squish those tires in you wanted. IMO.

I would say that's a fact more than an opinion.

While that may be true, which I hadn't thought of before, I would still prefer not distancing the body from the frame. It may be harder to modify the metalworking to house those bigger tires, but I think the final product would be worth the extra.

That is all true, my friend has had an old chev for a long time now with a 3" body lift. He does the occasional off-roading, and with time the blocks have started to push through the bed and cab where the metal has begun to decompose. If it's looks you're after with a newer truck and you don't mind being able to see between your frame and bed, hell save yourself a buck or two with a body lift. If it's off road performance and reliability, suspension lift, hands down, no questions asked.

My point was that you should never underestimate rust and any comments you make about the state or amount of rust is dangerous.
