I probably could have bent the tubes upward, which would have worked fine. I just worry I would have kinked the metal line, but no brackets to relocate it.

Was the finished black truck lifted only with a body lift? It looks really good considering some people say the frame looks ugly after a BL...

Some vehicles look bad with body lifts, like Chevys. I've seen s10s and you can see the entire thing without bending over lol.

You can see the entire frame before the body lift

Figured I'd add in my before & after pics. This was my oldest's truck that was being passed to the next in line, so wanted to change it up a bit.

Thumbs up Re: Body Lift 3 Tech Info Extravaganza

WOW! What a great thread. I'm getting ready to pull the cab off my '98 standard cab to sandblast and rust treat, replace front brake line (rabs) new frame cross members, etc etc etc.

Thanks all. I had posted in the build forum on how to pull the cab but hadn't gotten much response. This is a lot of what I wanted to know.

I know this is an old thread but does anyone have a picture of the 98 strive shaft extension. I got a kit from someone but dont know what year it is for. Have all the parts and an idea of a few parts it could be. Also if you have any pics of how you installed it too. I hope you can still help.

Ok. I do have something that looks similar to that. If I remember correctly it was solid with two holes drilled where it is in those pics. I'll take pics and post it. Also how did you guys extend your break lines. You mentioned something about bending them. Not really sure what I should be bending. Sorry for all of the questions. But I've pretty much got a crew of 18 year olds working with me(also 18) who know some stuff but are pretty much good at picking things up and putting them down.
