There is a PA B/L for 01 and up. Call 4WP and they will hook you up.

it's only a pain if you do it by your self....thats why i worked my *** off to get it for this meet so i'd have some willing help.....the hardest part i'v heard/Done on a friends truck....is the front the bed is cake...but we gotta get to the body mounts that are inside the truck under the carpet so that'll be a little pain in the *** but not to bad

tou can get around the frame showing becuase your raising the body 3" above the frame, the motor will now be 3" in the engine bay, and putting some step bars on will hel not see it as much and gap gaurds in the wheel wells.

well i plan on doing gap guards i'm not sure about step bars yet..but i'm going to get gap guards or make some.. i'v got an idea to make it look like it's thwe frame instead of haveing a gap by tack welding sheets of metal to the bed "like where the gap guards would go" and then rhino lineing the hole fender and the sheet thats covering the gap

Frame will show, but not too much, mine wasn't too bad, but I got gap guards. You can make some out of rubber and it will be good. The hardest we had were the front cab bolts. The cab bolts were easy, just pull the carpet up. The front bolts were the hard one's, I had to drill the bushing out to fit the bolt.
The stepbars should be fine, they are connected to the cab and will be raised with the body.
