    **************PLEASE READ COMPLETELY****************

    We are installing Solus lift on Saturday the 12th. This is a drop bracket lift and will take the whole day. We will not be doing any other mods on this day. I will limit this to 5 other people not including solus and I. I will take the first 5, but please do not sign up unless you can show up early, stay all day, and be ready for some serious wrench turning/work. We will break for lunch and fire up the grill.

    *******************************we have two maybes so still let me know if youre interested as a backup*************************

    Sounds like fun. Not sure what kind of shop you have but it just took my guys about 9 hours to put mine on at their shop. Good luck with it. wish I could be there, but after everything I just spent a road trip like that is out of the question. LOL

    Looks like the grinder may have been to just clean up the rough edges... i think a sawzall or plasma cutter would work best. i could be wrong though :crapstorm:
