Also if you do a body lift correctly you can hardly even tell it has one.
Magic invisible frame paint and just cut the exhaust off? Body colored gap guards?

i have installed a pa body lift with my dad and it isnt that hard, the cab is super easy if your bolts arent rusted and the factory bolts for the cab that are suppost to be pressed it We used a grinder to break em because the pa body lift comes with new ones.

That's what I wanted to hear lol. So these body mounts in the cab are not true?

Steps to hide the frame, move the exhaust when you redo it cause stock sucks, and yes gap guards

Yea I think gap guards would be the way to go... My exhaust is already painted black, and I have step bars... problem solved. Saying body lifts are ugly is silly, if you do them well you can barely tell. It's $400 vs. a $1,400 suspension lift. For a ruck that never sees offraod, it doesn't make sense to spend another $1,000 dollars

You don't have to do body colored gap guards. You can do black. No need for smart *** remarks though, thanks. It takes time do it right.

I mean if you don't like it, don't do it. You don't have to go around talking smack about what other people do. Sorry if I don't wanna buy a $1,400 lift but my bank account looks nice and I'd like to keep it that way. My truck is black so I think the black gap guards will be just fine

Exactly, Just take your time and do it correctly and it will look just fine. Good luck on the project, I plan on hopefully doing mine this summer.
