What you're looking at that hangs low is the A/C condenser...you dont relocate that for the bodylift. The rad is located behind it and you can't even see it.

What I'm saying...is drop it or not drop it. if you drop it, drop it right meaning complete. Last thing I'd wanna see is a thread of how your fan hit your radiator because the bottom of the rad tilted back on a bumpy road. idk...maybe i'm overly causious?

Don't understand what you said there Trent...

I bought my BL used on RPS, when I got it it was missing half the stuff, including the rad drop brackets. Thats why I didn't have them in

My a/c condensor thing is all jacked up due to the street sign mod. The radiator hangs below it because of that.

You might can't see your's but I can see mine.

Trent's took about a month. LOL!


He may take the lead, but it wont be an actual win. Because Trent drove his with just the bed lifted. James is completely unavaliable to have the opportunity to even see his truck.

Haha guys. Yes, shane is correct, completely unavailable to see my truck.. Which makes me quite sad.

Blake - All i have left to do is bed, radiator brackets and front bumper/gaurd. should be able to finish everything up in a day. Should be getting finished picks up next week around the 3rd.

Im also going to have to get the exhaust re-hung eventually but thats not really a priority right now, i need to fix the misfire problem first..










Oh almost forgot, I also have to paint the front bumper brackets for shane.

I would if it were me. Uncrank them for better ride since you're probably close to being maxed out already to fit 35's with only 4".

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!

FINALLY DONE!!!! well, kinda lol.. Everything is done EXCEPT the bumpers, which i am taking into a shop.. the guy is going to modify the brackets to lift them up just a hair more.. I dont have access to the tools needed. And he is going to go through everything just to make sure its all good..

But everything else is done, and it is BEAST lol..

Few things i still need to do...

1) Raise exhaust
2) Get gap gaurds
3) bumpers.

and thats it! lol..

ill post pics in a little bit, have to find the dam camera..
