I have the summit racing body lift kit...it was like $159.
Came with eveything..but if your truck is a manual u will need to get the shifter extension its sold separate.

Took about 10 hrs to do...lot of hard work with rusty bolts...lol.
The bed is the easiest.
Just gotta have the right tools and a torch to heat up stuff to get free.

I know i'm late to the party, but welcome back Terry!

I don't know how you guys work on your trucks in this weather- I told my wife and our next place has to have a heated garage, she said she wanted a walk in closet- we made a deal. My front brakes needed an overhaul in December, that was no picnic :-(
