OK Looks like Thurs, is the big day!

any tips? to avoid pit falls you may have done let me know...if all goes well hoping to be up and running for this weekend at least for one day.

If willing to help out, will be at Fort Detrick Auto shop starting at 9ish until complete. Shoot me a PM and will get you my cell if needed.

If all goes well going to try and put on the PSC rear bumper with tire mount also.

Start spraying PB blaster on all the bolts that need to be removed or loosened. A good week of that and you will be cash money

Thur when well, took a bit longer then wanted but had at one point 3 guys helping out. Some times more is less...lol but we did get it done. Had a few issues and i am still working out how to get the breather lines moved and making sure new break lines are happy where they are. But i think i should have that locked down by Monday, when i go back and lockdown the bolts again after the 100-300 mile breakin/retorq time. And will install the rear bumper...ugg not looking forward to that...I hear getting the PSC rear with tire mount is a nightmare with everything lining up the first time...will see...

as for pics didnt take many as was Assho!e and elbows in the lift but did get after shots lol...

Not sure if i posted pics of front bumper install will toss a few up with after shots of lift.

Grinding off trash bar for install of skid plate and bumper (buddy not me..i did half he did the other)
2011-10-06_18-34-48_431.jpg
Installed after some kicking grinding and a lot of 4letter words..
2011-10-14_09-06-47_17.jpg
New lift shoes and a lot of my skin left on differnt parts under truck...elbow still hurts after banging the hell out of it ripping off bump stop after install...dont ask...lol (didnt put in the spacers before bump stop install..lol only big screw up..and wasnt that bad)

2011-10-14_09-06-54_206.jpg
Will try and get some more pics out side in the sun today..been raining the last few days...

Side notes...had to take off rear TF bump stops to re torq the lower control arms after install...could have been noted in instructions.. and like i said need to fix breather lines they are maxed out..hum and might have to re do break lines unless they become more supple with time. as they are kinda close to tire (excess for drop). Besides that a bit floaty but thats expected due to lack of Adj CAs...already looking at getting a pair...waiting till tax time i think....

No issues with vibrations or DW so far...pray i dont jinxs my self with this post!

My TJ has a 3" lift also with 33" toyo tires. No rubbing issue whatsoever.
