Default I promise last thread on this!!!!!

i know im obsessing on this lifting stuff but one more question....
how does the bumpers go up with the body when you do a BL if i thought they were attached to the frame not the body? or do you have to mod them?

ALSO...
are the running boards attached to frame or body?
-THANKS ALOT GUYS I REALLY APPRECIATE

go look at them to see if they do really man really??? i am starting to get annoyed with this. i don't think your ready for a B.L yet man. you need to do some research. dont jump into it without knowing what to do. use the search on the top of your screen and look up B.L. thats what it is there for and there is plenty of post on B.L to help you learn more.

x2 @ Marie & Vincent.


I am a crotchety old man, my response, this pic is mandatory...




But seriously, we all started somewhere. You're not stupid and you shouldn't be embarrased. Just remember for next time you've got questions. Post threads in their respective sections, and if you've got multiple questions that fit in the same section on almost the same subject(aside from a pic req thread), post it in the same thread.

Stock stepbars are bolted to the body, so they go up with the body. Kits come with bumper brackets. It's just you can't tow with your rear bumper anymore.



And since I'm like an ******* now, I can't leave this out...

No one minds if you ask questions. It's just that you don't need to start a brand new thread for every single question you have. If you start a vague thread about 1 body lift question, and then have another follow up question pertaining to the same topic, post it in the same thread. I've counted 7-8 (it's late, i forgot) threads you've created about lifting your truck. Everytime you've posted a thread you've got answers, it's just that by constantly creating new threads it gives the perception you don't value the members participating in your previous threads, thus why you're starting a new one.
