    So the lift is basically the Toytec Ultimate lift without the rear lift. (just the rear TSB springs) All other components of the Ultimate lift are installed.

    Also installed the Light Racing UCA's and 265/70/17 Cooper Discoverer STT's on stock wheels.

    The alignment is set at +2.2 caster 0 camber 0 toe per TOKU58's write up on alignment. Thanks TOKU!!

    I cant remember. i just called the dealer and asked for the UCA thru bolts. they didnt have them in stock but they got em in like 3 hours!

    i read about doing it that way on this site. i cant compare it to bending the fender and messing with the battery box but i would definately suggest it. one thing you have to do on the driver side is take out the 2 bolts that mount the brake lines the the inner fender. then the brake lines easily move around.

    Remember that you are butting the bolt in the opposite way that it comes stock. I used red thread locker on the nut just as an isurance policy.

    You really are a lucky SOB!! That would be sweet! I would be able to work on my vehicle myself again if I had a setup like this (bad back).

    Cheers.

    Looks great. I don't get it. I have my caster set at 2.4 and the tires sit further back than yours. There is no way I could fit the mud flaps. How did you manage to do that on yours? My camber and toe are 0 too. I have 1.75" of lift.

    treaddepot.com had them the cheapest. ($206.50 shipped each) local firestone dealer matched that price. also took off $64 for the tax difference. (tax in colorado none on the net). lifetime alignment $140. other bullshit all added up to $1,087 out the door.

    any wider and you will probably have to get aftermarket wheels or spacers. i wanted to keep stock wheels and wanted to keep/use the mud flaps.

    If I am going to put a lift similar to the one in the picture up above I would want a taller ceiling that way I can walk underneath the vehicle rather than squatting down to look at anything under the vehicle.
