Body lift is Finally On

I got my body lift in last week and have been itching to put it on so after work sunday I started and got the bed knocked out in about a hour. I decided to wait until my day off on saturday to lift the cab....Well I got impatient and started monday as soon as I got off work.

So then what did you do with your radiator? leave it in the old position or just use the top mounts? I just wend out and took a pick of mine it might help. It is looking at if from just behind the front body mount. you probalby will have to bend the front of hte mount like i did to get it to clear that part of the truck. I remember having a hell of a time on mine too.
