Maybe I missed where you posted, but do you plan on offroading at all? My truck is a daily driver and will probably never see mud, so Im lifting just for looks. Thats why as of today Im leaning towards the 5" PA body lift. I would love the BDS kit, but for the price of that I can get the body lift, install it, and prob some wheel/tires.

My truck sees a little off roading right now, but with such a long wheel base, I'm afraid of getting high-centered. With the lift, it will see a lot of off roading and mud.

I had to help my buddy weld a steel plate under his cab on a Chevy extended cab from one of the blocks coming loose and punching a hole through it. Just something to consider. Good Luck !
Sounds like a back yard body lift. Body lift blocks are the same diameter as the factory bushings.
Every body lift failure I've ever seen has been a Tweakerbilt version. Hockey pucks, blocks of wood, random pieces of tube, whatever they can fit in there.

Far cry from a proper one.
