    Well ok peeps,

    I will be joining your long travel ranks soon.
    I placed my order for All Pro's LT kit, res shocks (front and rear), timbrens front and rear, expo's out back

    Any hints, tips, tricks or suggestions from those of you who have installed your own???

    First off yes i am going to do the install myself.
    Yes I am competent mechanically.:cookiemonster:

    Thanks in advance

    1) Stock up on beer
    2) Make sure beer has adequate time to chill before you start work
    3) Make sure the misses understands she will have to cook you a steak and give you a massage and a bj at the end of the day to compensate you for your hard work.

    Good luck :thumbsup:

    Ahh yeah forgot that one. Good looking out!
    When I pulled the motor on my truck busted my knuckle pretty hard and threw the ratchet out the garage....and into the street....
    My neighbor saw it happen and came over with some spongebob bandaids, a 6 pack of lagunitas and brought my wrench back. :cheers:

    Good to know Sarah thanks.
    So far Kurtis has been taking good care of me. Very knowledgeable, more than willing to devote the time to me to answer all of my questions, as well as all of my options/outcomes to me in as much detail as he can.
    Besides... if it ain't right, after I drop the truck on my head, I'm haunting his ass :p I'll be hiding the remote and his tools...:eek:
