Default 3" Body Lift Installed!! Pics!

Well..over the course of last weekend, me and a friend decided to finally throw the body lift on my truck. It was quite the chore but we got er done!!

Heres some pics of the process!

First here is a pic of the kit prior to installation:



Some of this is definately a necessity!!



Removed some stuff from engine bay:



Front Bumper off :



Couple shots of the Cab lifted:





Bed lifted:



Front Bumper back on:



Rear Bumper back on:



Lights hooked back up:





Overall we had a great time and only ran into a few minor problems. I will be getting my new rims and 35's Monday, and I will be posting more pictures of it when they are on.


Cheers!

Looks good. How far from the rear bumper is the dual exhaust now though? Does it look like the tips are out of place? I have wondered this for a while.

the tips are obviously a bit lower, but they do not look out of place at all.

Thanks!! It is the performance accessories 3". The kit they make is a very thorough one, and installation is very straight forward. Theres a little bit of cutting/welding but not too much. I think it turned out great for my first body lift
