Question about 01-08 3'' PA body lift

One of the very last steps in the PA instructions is to.... "Weld four kit bed crush blocks on frame as shown". From my understanding a lot of guys on this forum have installed this kit themselves. Welding is above my skill set and my ability to obtain a welder. How important are the bed crush blocks, the instructions dont take the time to show you where to put them. Do I need these blocks? If so is there an alternative to welding them?

not everyone uses those crush blocks,but if you don't haul alot of weight in your truck bed i wouldnt worry about useing them right away. and it couldnt cost to much for someone to weld them in for you

I would but the blocks in. They are squeezed so tight that they dont really move. I think I may have put some JB Weld on a couple of mine.

To tell you the truth I do use my truck for work or projects pretty often, and tend to haul around decent amounts of weight. It sounds like it would be best for me to have these bed crush blocks in. JB weld sounds like the best option so far, but are there any other ideas or options out there?
