I'm a cheapo, and im looking to do a cheap body lift. i can get all the bolts, extend what needs to be extended etc, but could i use some 4x4 3'' pressure treated wood and drill a hole in the middle and mount it up and use it? what about 3 hockey pucks on top of each other? whats the safest route to go? i might get the kit if its a last resort but id like to know if this would work first. thanks.

i wouldn't go anywhere near that truck and I don't think your insurance company or the cops would like it very much if u ever got into an accident plus like blazer said wood will split.

i'd want to use solid steel blocks, but that'll work too

Yeah I'd use wood, rough cut thou. Its softer, it won't split. Make the cab ones a little taller than the beds, the weight will crush them to make them even.

Yhea, just once it gets wet andd rots it will be ok.
DO NOT USE WOOD. you can get a bl for about $100 don't be so fng cheap. Your lively hood aka life might be sacraficed in the long run cause you wanted to save a few $$

Im guessing this body lift is a big NEGATIVE. Well, it seems my cheapo self is buying a kit! Maybe ill get one for chirstmas and i'll probally surely feel better about it than this goon as BuzzerPB stated:

id use some old campbells soup cans, put the bolts in ahead of time and make sure they are centered when the quick drying cement sets up..... and leave the lables on for sure... id say some cramy tomato would look good. maybe some chicken noodle, but dont use split pea they are not as solid...
