The body lift wasnt bad. I didnt mind it for the price. For what i put into it, I love my truck alot now and think it looks way better. It also made it way better when wheelin. I mean not bad for what i got in the lift, wheels, and tires. It just takes some time and hard work but it was totally worth it in the end.

If you dont have power tools and never done a Bl it will only take about 7 hours. If you have done it and have power tools about 4,

Easy to do and cheap

Yeah, extensions come for both of those though. Well you might have to buy the shifter extension separate, I don't remember. Both are really easy to install though.

Take 5 mins to extend the steering arm. Unhook the brake lines and ebrake some other little things. There is intructions on here somehwere. Read them and decide. Its super easy
