Sorry we discussed this in another post. Anyway I got 6.5" wide stainless to fill the gap in the wheel wells from the body-lift ,painted with a wrinkle coat and about to paint green over that. Also installed rear bumper brackets to raise it where it belongs.

Re: MPHZ71-OR ANYONE WITH A BODY-LIFT

Ok. Your rigs is looking superb. I made a custom prerunner bumper for my 1/2 ton with a 2" body lift and i welded it to the mounts so that it was flush. I hate the incomplete look of a body lift with bumpers still in cowcatcher position. I need to make something to cover the gap in my frame though. But hell, its been 4 years since i installed the lift.

You know about the "Lift Lips " dont you? I was going to buy them but opted to try my own idea.The lift lips sell for $50 for front and back i believe>

Re: MPHZ71-OR ANYONE WITH A BODY-LIFT

Yea but i kinda think that they aren't worth the $50. I have an unlimited supply of aluminum/stainless sheet metal so i think i will try to rig up something myself.

Re: MPHZ71-OR ANYONE WITH A BODY-LIFT

cool whitetail - id like to see some pics in the daylight if you can get some. those pics are really too dark to see anything. anyways - heres a pic of what i did to fill the gaps. i took an old tailgate mat from the s10 i had and cut two strips and screwed them to the bedside in the wheelwells. i also got that textured black undercoating and sprayed the wheelwells (they were silver). overall i think it looks really good and isnt an obvious body lift with the gap under the bed. now for the rear bumper brackets - i decided im gonna make my own. i have 3 weeks off of school in august and im going to weld some up. i have to weld some brackets to mount my new seats anyway (i ordered em last thursday!!! YEA)
