Bodylift is on!

Ok I would have done this right after I got done thursday morning but Internet was down till now.

It ended up taking us 12 hours to do we only stopped for about an hour and a half, but it was worth it. Here are some pics:

I still need to take off the old bumper brackets, and lift the exhaust.

33's are getting put on tomorrow. I can't wait!
I got one question about the bodylift. When we got done I put my tailgate back on and noticed that when you put it down it pops off, i found out that its hitting the top of the bumper here's a pic:

How do I go about fixing this? I can't move the bumper down, I'm clueless?
I'll post some pics when I get the 33's put on.

Elongate the bolt holes on the bumper for some adjustment. BTW, truck looks much better with the lift.

my tailgate does the same thing...the right side pops off. but if you push it forward as you open it nothing happens. i don't care that it hits the bumper lol it still opens so its ok
but ya ditch those mud flaps...you may want some 01+ flares cuz they leave a piece missing since they are molded with the flare.
looks good. new tires asap!

good job! your truck looks great! ...be sure to post pics when you get those new tires on!!

my tailgate did the same thing after we re-attached the rear bumper... just coax it down a half inch or so, and you'll be good to go.

idk about yours, but my brackets allow me to adjust the bumper up and down when i losen the bolts. because mine did the same thing. i never fixed it, just pushed down on it as hard as i could to move it down a bit lol. it still hits it, but not enough to pop it off anymore.

oh and looks really good man

My friend said that right after we got done installing the BL. And I just nodded my head NO! I would rather save for other things for my truck or my next vehicle.

Pics are uploading as we speak.
