    The only homemade body lift I've heard of that I trust is someone used solid aluminum stock and made a 1 inch body lift for their race truck.

    I've heard many ways to make body lifts, all of them are probably unsafe. Most of them to say the least.

    Just spend the money, buy the kit, and do it right. Much safer that way.
