Well it was supposed to be finished today!!!
But.....first example....
The instructions say to support the radius arm with a hydraulic jack and then remove the radius arm bracket and lower everything enough to put the drop bracket on. Sounds simple.
Bullshit!!!!
The radius arm did not drop down at all. I had to jack the fukin thing down far enough to put the new bracket on.[}:)]
And yes I did take pictures.:D
Bottom line is it won't be finished until tuesday afternoon.:(
I hope....

oh well , dont rush it . Thats when you forget things. I rushed my body lift and I broke two mounting bolts off inside thier threads. So right now , i dont even have all the lift blocks in. Thats why I dont use the jeep to often.

You can take the boy out of the country, but you cant take the country out of the boy.

Well, it's finished.
Took waaaay longer than I had expected.
Rusty old trucks are always an adventure to work on.;)
It is street worthy now but I still have to install extended brake lines before wheelin or I'll just pull them off.[:0]
Can't wait to get out on the trails again.:D

When and where are we meeting for the weekend run up east stave.
