Ford F150, F250, F350 Body Lift Kit Installation Instructions

April 30th, 2009 · No Comments

This kit should only be installed on a vehicle that is in good working condition. Before you install the kit, thoroughly inspect the vehicle for corrosion or deformation of the sheet metal around the factory body mounts. If the vehicle is suspected to have been in a collision or misused, do not install this kit. Off-road use of your vehicle with this kit installed may increase the stress applied to the factory body mounts. We do not recommend that any vehicle with a body lift kit installed be involved in any extreme off-road maneuvers such as jumping. Failure to observe this warning may result in serious personal injury and/or severe damage to your vehicle.

Refer to the factory service manual or owner’s manual for the recommended procedure to disable the SRS. After kit installation, the SRS must be reactivated before driving the vehicle.
