Gap gaurds for BL?

Hey guys I'm going to lift my truck with a body lift, first time doing it and I wanted to know if the gap gaurds were something that I would have to do or not really necasarry? Another concern would be the exhaust. I saw pics on here of a body lift and the exhaust was noticably low and didn't look good. I have a custom flowmaster with a deseil 5 in tip that looks good but I don't want it to look bad after the body lift any help would be great

the gap gaurds are only to cover the gap between the frame and body after the lift so not really necessary but it will look better with them on. i have them. as far as exhaust, just get your pipe raised

if you have a receiver hitch you will also notice how low it will sit below the bumper after you relocate it
