I'm gonna show this to some of the "homeboys" back in eastex. I hope it'll make em think twice but I doubt it. I say NO to body lifts even before I owned a truck.

i had 2 friends die a couple years ago when their f150 with a 3 inch body lift went into the ditch and it rolled and the cab was throw atleast 30 feet away from the frame. everything on scene showed that the cab wouldn't have come off if it wasn't for the body lift.

not saying they are complete crap because they hit the ditch going 70 which is a test of strength on anything but they may have had a better chance if the cab had not been tore off the frame and thrown from it.
