Once i cut my shock mounts, and put them on in a better place I should be able to get more than that now that i have the lift blocks gone.

Matt to answer your question for now its just the bolts in the bed floor holding it there its pretty stable it really doesnt move much farther than it did before the dovetail but i am going to cut the tailgate to fit back on the truck so that will take care of the problem

And yes it does rub when i get the back flexing hard i am going to trim it wednesday

My list for wednesday is to trim the fenders, finish my front bumper, finish the halfdoors, and maybe sliders if i have time a friend of mine is oof work that day and so am i so we are going to fire up the bender and welder and have some fun

so just the 4 bolts? or did you make the middle blocks work? Maybe its cause i have my body lift, but my ****s really wobbly
