Default Body Lift came in today! :D

My body lift just came in today and I'm so pumped for the install this weekend!

One thing, anyone have any tips for me from people who have done them in the past?

Thanks guys, I'm still not sure how I'm getting that cab up though.

I started with the PB this morning so they should come out for me, hopefully without a torch.

I'm 17.... What's this beer stuff? It sounds good

Alright. That was a bitch, but was worth it. My father and I ended up doing it together.




I just need more money for bigger tires!

Thanks guys!

I really don't want to put the stock chrome on but I don't have the money for the new bumpers I'm making over the summer. Gotta love being a high school student....

I'm not gonna lie though, PA really needs to make better directions, I got confused as hell sometimes.
