is it a bad idea to put a camper on a truck that has a body lift...
yes it is in my world cause thers not side to side support and if you were ever to twist box might be soo much wieght may bend or brake bolts with it or even just not do good there some many things that could happen i would stay away from it

dont most body lift kits come with those reinforcing things for under the bed for things like that

i guess it would depend on hwo you strap the camper down....
if you trow tons of chains and starps and shit right off the frame, then id be ok with it, but if you just srapin it down with them box things, i dont want you driving near me....
