    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!

    :cool: Haven't checked the prices in quite a while but that's several $100 cheaper than what I saw last time. If you're installing it yourself, plan on 15 to 20 hours of install time.....and a little blood & sweat too. ;)

    Anything in particular you suggest I make sure I have? or tips for issues you've ran into?

    I have all the basics, along with sawzall/grinders/cut off wheels.. picking up some wrenches for the stock brake lines for replacing with stainless, my friend is bringing extra air tools & a mig welder.. using my step dad's shop where he has a hydraulic press.. we're also going to raise the rear lower shock mounts with some new tabs I ordered from SDHQ Offroad so I can use my existing Fox shocks, and will trim/plate the cab mounts if necessary. I ordered EBC slotted/drilled rotors & green stuff pads to throw on while it's apart to go along with the new brake lines, and will be replacing the rear diff oil too since the front's getting drained & the rear axle will get welded on.. we have the whole weekend, but I do have to drive to work Monday :eek: and Sunday's Mother's day haha.

    Coil spring/strut compressor tool if you purchased a stage 1 kit. You'll have to add the top spacer under the plate.....then tighten it all back up.

    Sounds about right...I do own a car lift so that helps ALOT but have done them on jack stands...just follow instructions and don't get to many people around...2 people is perfect...

    I have Fox 2.5 Adjustable Coilovers, but will still be using the spacers. will I still need the spring compressor tool?

    Thanks for the tips!

    That looks better than what I saw on my way home. He was riding on all terrains or street tires. Just didn't look right. I'm on 35s and thinking of down sizing since its my daily driver and I'm still cruisin with 373 gears.

    if you do a regear you might as well do a locker or two since you are in there.
