Doesn't the plow attached to your frame where the tow hooks would be? If so, I wouldn't think it would affect the BL at all. In my opinion.
How hard is it to put on a BL. I don't have much expierence working on trucks and if I do put one on I want to do it right so it looks good instead of like crap.A bodylift won't affect your plow at all. You'll be fine running a BL on your truck.
On my old 95' K3500 I ran 285's on 16x8's and they were fine in the summer, but when I put the 8' Fisher plow on in the winter they would rub bad. I put a 2" BL on that truck and solved my problems.
The HD's do show a bit of frame with the BL's, but just keep the frame painted up nice and black or add some type of steps to hide the frame rails. It'll look good.
Yeah thanks man! Good advice.lol that GM mechanic is a tool. bigblue is right.
Then maybe it would be smartest to wait until I'm ready to get new tires because I might possibly look into getting new wheels as well next time. I guess i'll wait so I can see what I can fit first. What about putting 1500 keys in my truck? I found someone who would sell me used ones for $40. How hard are they to put in and will they give me more lift in the front then my stock keys?Not hard at all... most time consuming part is messing with the bumpers and aligning them right so they look good.
I've done 7 of them and 2 that I helped/BS'd through.
If you get a BL now, you'll want bigger tires again.. I promise ya!!! lol....
Okay sounds good. What shocks do you recommend? I know a lot of people say good things about Blistine?Yeah, you can add the green keys (stock 1/2ton keys) to yours and crank them some.
I ran green keys cranked up level with 2" rear blks. with 305's on 16x8's and it looked good IMO. You shouldn't need the BL yet unless you want to run 315's/35's on aftermarket wheels. Also if you plan on adding green keys and cranking them a bit, you should think about aftermarket shocks b/c the stockers will be too short.
Green keys, 2" blks, BDS shocks, 305/70/16's, 16x8's--
Green keys, 2" blks, BDS shocks, 3" BL, 315/75/16's, 16x8's--
Reason being there is alot more going on. Intercooler piping, Turbo piping, and other issues. I would not want to make it even harder to work on a Dmax. Im sure it is a PITA to install anyways.Why wouldn't you do it on a Dmax? Is there something different then doing it on a regular HD? I know the kits are different for the two I just wasn't sure what was different about them.
