Do You mean no cutting or grinding to install the lift?

Yeah sorry it was kinda vague. That's what I mean. No cutting or grinding 100% bolt on.

I used the rough country 3.5 inch lift (with there upper control arms) the only grinding spot was on the front diff. To remove a portion of a fin to allow the diff. To drop down. No cutting anywhere else on truck all bolt on other than the diff.

I looked up the directions and I thought I saw something about cutting where a bump stop went?

That is if you buy standard kit, premium kit comes with there uca's like I mentioned above no cutting of bump stops. You pay extra$ but I didn't want to cut off my bumps either.

Your truck is returnable to stock f you decide to take lift off, and should not void warranty.
