ok finally my truck gona be out for next week :'(

ill miss it...

q thing befoe i take it tomarrow. as im doing the lift not buying it. is it necesarry to put the nylon spacers on the bed? or i can just put a hell lot of spacers all around the bed floor?

cause the guy thats gona make the spacers for the cab is kinda expensive so i needed to know if it would be alright to just put some metal spacers insted of the nylon bushins :S

i know it "can" be done.. ive seen it like this with 1 foot long..(someone posted a pic a while ago :P somewere on the forum).. but the point is if it works and gives no problem only in the bed. the cab im doing it the 'right' way
