well with body lif t youllk have to invert t-case boot or just extend shaft and leave it and when doing body lift you will need ot do tank raise or hose and make sure all lines nad stuff are moving before doing it and do front seprate andthen do tub wiht hoist if possible

no it is attached to the frame

yo buddy why PM:confused:
I dont know exactly how to lift the tank, should i change the brackets!!!.
post it Plz
how much should I extend the Tcase shaft?

youngun

the case shaft can be extended i recomend 4" extention because i only extended mine 3" and i have to run the boot up side down. making it a little longer should fix that.

Or you can cut the tunnel of the floor.

ok, unbolt the bottem bar, 2 bolts on each side...

then unbolt the tank 4 bolts and the one bolt on the passangers side for the skidplate......

lower it as far down as you can without streaching the hoses and wires too far....

Get out the grinder or zip disk and cut off all 4 of the stock hangers as best you can.....

Then lift the tank up intoplace with the tanks lip closest to the back of the truck on top of the x member....

Get a jack and hold it there.....

you will see that the skid plate has a little arm on the passagers side that is too long. measure how much it is short and cut it so it buts up to the frame... if you hit a rock it will just push that end peice into the frame anyway..... or you can cut out the length you need and then weld the end back on, but that needed to me welded and i don't have a welder so i never did that and my tank is plenty strong.

Then get 2 2" exhaust clamps and put those over the x member and threw the 2 holes in the tank lip.

then go to the front, line up the front holes and dril a hole threw the x member and put a bolt threw those holes.

tighten everything all up a second time and maybe paint is while you have it all uncovered...

I don,t know what you guys are talking about. I did a homemade 3 inch lift , and have been wheeling 2 years as is. No tank lift, and no steering shaft extension. Just add 3 Inchs to both stick shifts,and your done. It cleans the job up if you also raise bumpers. Check the zuwahara site for a detailed description.

yea, but if you rasie the tank you get more groundclearance under the tank and it looks ALOT better.

I just finnished putting a bodylift in and it took us 6 hours to build the lift and unstall it. The major problem we ran into was the chopsaw disk was cutting really really really slow.


James- Just get a facoty skid plate, if you do the gas tank lift you will never or rarly hit the tank.

as far as I know steering extension should be done :confused:
caz if its not necessary I really dont want to bother doing it.

it shouldn't be needed, i have put bodylift on 2 different sidekick both with different steering and there was no need to extend them.
