Lifted!!!!!!!

I did this lift myself with a mechanic buddy. Neither of us had every done a lift like this before. The only thing I have done was put lowering springs in my old lexus. Holy fuck was this different. Rear only took about 2-3 hours for just me to do. But the front was a fucking bitch. Front diff did not want to come out. Between the two of us, 2 ten hour days, 4 packs of camels, 2 cans of kodiak and 48 mountain dews. I think it probably took so long because we spend half the time smoking, chewing, drinking or pissing.

It was a really fun experience but there's no fucking way I'd do it again.
