A guy had an old 6.5L? diesel suburban (non turbo?).. went up the RTI ramp and we were all like, "WTF?" when the bumper went all sorts of crooked..

then he did it again a little later and we all saw his body lift, 6" body lift using 4"x4" lumber, not even pressure treated!!!

Dont you see the "performance accessories" sticker on the door?? This is the new Earth Friendly body lift they offer using wood...DUH!!! I also heard skyjacker/Pro Comp/Superlift were going to start making their suspension lift components out of recycled diapers and reclaimed toilet paper, tampons, and condoms from sewer treatment plants.

i don't know what you guys are all talking about. A piece of 4x4 pressure treated wood with a hockey puck above and below it would work just fine and safe.

Think about it. The 4x4 block would act as a body lift block and for a smoother ride, you throw a hockey puck above and below it to act as a shock absorber per say. lol
