installing bodylift ?'s

i was reading the instructions to install the body lift, and my question was do you have to weld the crush blocks to the frame?

it said to in the isnstrutions but i want to make sure cause my dad is out of rod.

I never even put those crush blocks in. Its not necessary to weld them. They fit very tightly in.

I have had 0 problems yet...and you saw how I beat the truck...

I haven't put my crush blocks in either. I never really haul anything except for my quad, and I have never had any problems.

I do not have them in mine either, I know some people have used a silicone sealer to hold them in.

The only reason you would wanna install them is if you are going to haul heavy loads in your bed. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

If you weld them in good luck getting them out that is why mine are not welded.
