Hello guys! I look at your guys' lifted trucks and it makes me slightly depressed. Im a broke bastard! I work 3.5 hours a night for $8.50. Needless to say... I barely make enough to make a truck payment, let alone buy a lift kit :thumbdown: I see that the body lift kits are basically pieces of plastic. I was wondering if I could make my own out of metal. Theyd last longer for sure but would it mess with the "bounce" of my truck? (would it be harder on my chassis). And I also see a relatively simple way to do a suspension lift: blocks and t-bar crank. The blocks look like a piece of steel and new u-bolts. Iv got steel lying around here so I could make my own. Right? Is there anything special about the lift blocks you get off the internet? Are both of these safe ways to lift my truck? Thanks guys!
