forgot to mention that.......i had the block on the outside of the punch weld, using a 6 x 6 x about 16" block.. Might have been the wrong way of doing it, but it got the job done with no damage...three bodylifts i've done like that.

Yeah, you'll be fine mine doesn't creak or anything. When I first did it I put the extra bed bolts in the cab on accident. That made a terrible noise lol

Ok, here you go the first two are from the drive-way. Then, me and my dad went out to look at the pipeline they are putting in locally. So, I decided to test it out. Lots of pics. Enjoy

I had to get new shocks for the back to. The one went bad so I replaced them both. Then I saw that either my axle seal is leaking or the wheel cylinder is in back.
