    Nope not yet,but mind you all I did was lift it and stuff the blocks under it and slid bolts thru..that was as far as I got,did notice the steering shaft was tweeked so I gotta lengthen that and trouble shoot everything else typical with a body lift..theres no engine or frontclip in it so no probs there..

  5. Sounds like some great progress. Wrathchild - what brand did you go with for the body lift?

    I'm tossing around what to do on my 69 3/4 ton. Probably just going to do ORD's 1" body lift but 2" or 3" would be best for what I want to accomplish.

    Did you have any difficulty breaking the body mount bolts loose? I just got done adding some spring leafs to my rear packs to gain a little height and load capacity, added 2" of leafs and gained 3 1/2" bringing my total real lift to 7 1/2". Now I got to address the front end, though the stance isn't bad at all right now.

    Body lift was a Performance Accessories.Yes the bolts were a pain, everyone in bed was tacked down (never seen GM go to that much trouble to keep bolts in)anyone seen there bolts mig welded down..anyways once I ground down the weld,the spacer up thru the mounts were all pretty much seized to the bolts so ended up grinding off the heads and driving them down..worked like a charm!!!Good luck on yours Yukon
