Sure you can make a lift for less but it wont and isn't the same thing. What it is, is stupid. When it falls apart and you total your truck cause of it maybe you'll learn, but most likely you wont.

Oh and I put my lift on myself

I have the knowledge to build a lift kit from scratch just like he might... does that mean I'd rather build my own than buy a proven and tested lift kit and make kt stronger? Absolutly not lol. Thats just stupid!

A body lift isn't gunna fall off becuz its bolted down and the original body lifts tht u pay 150 bucks for are nylon and are just as capable of breakin. I hav never had a 3 inch body lift break, bend, or anything. Im not throwin hockey pucks under a truck tht is stupid im puttin steel thts strong enough to take huge amounts of force to bend so its prolly safer than your nylon piece of shit lift

Are you inbred, or just that stupid? I'm ashamed of myself for even being born in Florida.

I assume you have researched the install manual located here: Superlift 4” lift system - Install Instructions

They list pretty much everything you want to have on hand (Pullers etc.).
