New Body Lift Tech Section

It has been a long time coming, probably should have added it a while ago, anyway here it is.

I am going to try and move most of the older body lift topics here as well. Please keep this section to only Body Lift tech.

if you would have looked 2 threads down from this one instead of posting you would have found this.

your 08 has more bed bolts then most trucks no one "makes" one for that but a 98-00 or 00-05 kit will work fine you dont need to use all the bolts the standard 6 will work

while i agree 8 bolts is excessive for the bed, i thought the kits came with "extra" blocks anyhow....for long bed trucks?

'08s are still 6 bolt beds. '09+ are 10 bolt beds. This goes for the shortbox models. As far as I know, longbeds are still 8 bolt.
