Body lift

i think im going to get a body lift for my truck. But the problem is i have dual exsaust in the back and a hitch. i dont want these to stay where they are. ive heard of some hitch mods and moving the tail pipes up. Has anyone done these and how much do they cost. Any troubles?
Thanks

pretty much have to get your exhaust rebent.. nothing else to do.. you can cut and weld your hitch so it doesnt hang down 3 inches... but you need your exhaust rebent..

Shouldn't be that much if your exhaust is a bolt in setup....still shouldn't be that much if it's all welded either....i'd say $70tops. I'd say a shop would charge $50.

The hitch is kinda a precise sorta deal to mod. I'd take it and the truck to a welding/fab shop, and see what they'd do. Might be $100, but can easily be done at home yourself with a welder and a grinder.

It's one of those things that you just gotta drive around to shops and getting quotes.
