I got a deal on the BL, spindle lift will be going on next summer. I wanted to do the BL first so I can get my exhaust done now. Once I'm done you won't be able to tell its a body lift or a spindle lift.

It's been way easier then I thought so far. Yours will be even easier since you don't have to mess with the rear bumper at all. I'll be working on tips and stuff today.

Gimme a ring in case you need a hand, i'll just be bored at work.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! The actual fun part begins next for you trent....the cab and them dang bolts! have fun man.
I know, I know lol. I'm not worried though, I've hit them with PB blaster once today, I'll do it again before I go to bed tonight. Heat them up and back them out with the impact and I'll be good to go. I'll probably be calling you again lol

I just have propane but it will do the trick just not as fast. The MAPP torch was 20 bucks more haha.

Pics! Some are the same thing but I couldn't tell which ones I liked the most. And I know I know the gap guards aren't on yet, I need to go get some more push pins from Lowes. It was really clean this morning then I found some mud today at lunch haha, I resisted and didn't get it covered due to the sake I have to be under it tomorrow morning. Tails are niteshaded, need to wet sand them and put more clear on. And the new toolbox!
