Yeah the bumpers take a 19. Just get a whole set, it will be easier. You'll probably use every one in the long run anyway.

Get a torch.

Heat the cab bolts from the bottom, have the friend up top with the impact gun.

Come out like butter that way.

Just did my body lift last fall.
Definitely look at the instructions. There are numerous ground straps and wire harnesses you need to disconnect. Fuel filler lines should be extended for bed lift. Oh I have a 99' too!
I never extended my fuel filler lines....hmmm i wonder if thats ok? hasnt leaked gas yet!
