Oh my God, I can totally see your frame!!!!! LOL that one always cracks me up. What do you expect to see more of. I'm surprised nobody has said anything yet on how good it came out. I'd rather do what you did than a 4.5" DB lift. But I change my mind all the time, so it doesn't really mean much.

You gonna provide close up pics of what you did?

So far you're the only 1.5" BL gen 2'er I've seen.

Haha well thank you. It came out great in my opinion. It will look better when I get my rock sliders welded on and my new off-road front bumper.

Well I couldn't find anyone that made just a 1" or 1.5" besides Roger Brown and I didn't know exactly what I was gonna need as far as hardware so I just dove in head first. I am crunching some numbers right now for alexmxman185 to put a kit together for him so I'll let you guys know if anyone else wants one.

you should really consider doing a group buy for this. i know many people on TW think BL are just unsafe and stupid but hey if you just want a few extra inches and your not putting your truck up a mountain everyday it's for sure the way to go. Im anxious to hear what you got for me sack17! Thanks again bro!

I hope so too I had started a thread since I liked the look of a rcd lift but don't have the $$ to do it so I figured w the 5100 n another 1-2" of body lift it'd be the same purpose n this way to fit bigger tires there wouldn't be much trimming to do.....financially sound if u ask me Haha even tho everyone bashes body lift
