Cut and weld the hitch. Trim the valance for the tow hooks. Make some gap guards.

No one will even be able to tell its a body lift.

Looks way better man! Good work!

You didn't crunch your body panels with that wood did you? I've seen wood do some work on that part on our trucks before...

I haven't really liked the idea of cutting the valance either.

Me neither, thats why I got a front hitch. Too bad they don't make the hidden hitch anymore.

It isn't crucial though. It is my understanding with the stock shifter, it will not go into either 2nd or 3rd i think. With the hurst it will, it only is about 3 inches lower.



Oh btw, use the money you were going to spend on the shifter extention, and get a Hurst. By far the best thing I have ever done with my truck
