Re: Body Lift Front Mount Help

Much of the 1" BL installation is exactly the same as the 3" BL installation. The 1" requires less work. The front core support mounts need drilled out like the 3" kit.

Re: axle not centered under bed?

I would confirm squareness of your bed to the frame. May as well also check the cab. Do that then go from there.

Re: 8" vs 10" wheel with 12.5 tire

Many choose 15x8's for the better offset for a beefier look. 15x7's just don't offer that. Plus, 15x8 wheel options are FAR more plentiful than 15x7.
