Body Lift Install

Well, I got my body lift from Ranger1 and finally decided it was time to put it on. Most of the time I had just me and my little bro helping and occasionally my uncle. The Electric impact came in real handy with the front bolts in the cab and a torch to one side. Anyways, here's the pics. I kind of like the way it looks without the front bumper, but I don't know what I can do to make it legal with that same look. And yes, I know my frame and undercarraige is dirty beyond belief, I'll clean it later.

bumpers asap, otherwise truck looks really good, like the color, keep the 33's, i think the fender gap on your setup looks awsome.....just my opinion

Yeah, I think I'll put the bumper and valence back on. As for the dirty undercarraige, it's all mud, the truck was undercoated at the factory and is still good (it's a 2005). All it needs is some water and attention. Originally I was planning on keeping the 33's till they run out. That should give me plenty of time to decide what I'd really like to do with it, whether it be sticking with the 33's or a different tire. More than likely it'd end up being the Goodyear Wrangler M/T 37x12.50. Did the rear bumper brackets give anyone else trouble? Mine wouldn't bolt up, I have to get a plasma cutter to a 1/4" on the part that bolts to the bumper.

Same here. I'd love to run that size MT/R

On the bumper brackets, theres only 1 way to put em on. You have to just flip and turn them around till you figure it out. It took me about 5 minutes of thinking hte first time...then I got it.

I got 12 in the front 13 in the rear IIRC...I don't exactly remember

looks great man.

trick on the rear bumper is dont tighten any bolts that hold that bracket until all the bolts are atleast in the right holes and started then tighten them up.

Alright, I'll try the rear bumper again. And when we have another warm day I'll get a water hose and a scrub brush to my frame, I checked yesterday to see how bad it was and it's just 1/8" rock hard mud from everytime I've ever been mudding.
