holy smokes. 9 videos?!? must have showed every step.
def something to watch. have done body lifts before. in fact we just did one on my brothers blazer. inch and a half body lift. nothing that would require modifying the brakes and some short wires. but that's half the fun
9 videos... Nightrunner is trying to outdo both Rocky and James Bond on number of videos.
Okay so to recap. When I do a body lift on my truck, I have to lower the fan shroud, modify the frame horns up front to lift the bumper, add in a spacer on the steering column, bolt on the rear bumper brackets and bolt or weld on the crush spacers under the bed. You mentioned gas lines in the video. What did you have to do there? What about throttle cables and the shifter cable? Are they long enough to not have to worry about them?
drive by wire throttle= no throttle cables
Oh easy enough.
Do you know is Zone has everything they sell on their website? I can't find a kit for my year on their site.
zone only does 06 and up
Okay, thanks for clearing that up!
I had to watch the video again. I couldn't remember if I needed spot welds or something more intense on the blocks. I have a lot thicker crush blocks that this local welding shop cut out of tubing for me. Would that work okay? I have been running like 5 months with out them.It sucks because I am afraid to load up the bed of my truck right now like it is.
Those will work fine. Just tack them in.
