Air powered impact gun. Need a compressor to run it. You don't absolutely have to have it, but it makes the job a HELL of alot easier and faster. You could rent a compressor and impact if needed.

Impact gun prices vary ALOT. From as small as $20 to as high as $1500! lol. You'd need a 1/2" drive impact putting out at least 200ft/lbs. Harbor Freight ones would work just fine as I did mine and a friend with my tiny lil harbor gun. But my new Snap-on $400 1000ft/lb gun is one bad ass machine. lol.

oh ok thanks. i think i will go with the custom gap guard route too because i dont wanna spend 100 dollars on the PA ones. that "how to" was great for the rear but what about the front? strangely enough on the passenger side of my truck it has a guard already but not on the driver side haha

Yea i guess i should of looked at your truck first but then go with the body lift man if you can instal it yourself than that should be the cheaper way to go i didnt know that that lift included the bumper as well theres two reasons i havent gone for that lift is the gape and the bumper situation my knowledge on all this isnt as great but go for the body lift then, i just thought your running bigger tires on stock suspension but 33" isnt that big of a deal, ive seen 33" on stock 2wd suspension well let me know how it turns out
