gas filler neck and rag joint spacer for the steering shaft.

Shifter can be a bitch to cut properly and then weld it back at the right angle so when you shift you dont smack the t case shifter or bang you or your passengers leg. Mark it well.


Other than that it went real easy in my truck.

mine took 6 hours, had to extend shifters, rad drop shifter extent, and gas filler. and when you jack up the body watch the clucth line to slave, i had to pull clip that bolts to starter. other than that everything went fine

Ive done quite a few, would never put a body lift in my own truck again, give it some thought before you do it. ask some of the vetran wheelers and they would most likly agree that their not the greatest thing. have an 85 runner only took 2hours. you can lift the bodyside with one hand as their very light and slide the blocks in with the other. the only crap thing was getting the intermediat shaft to slid out. drill the pin and use some heat and no probs. otherwise there one of the easiest ive done. have fun with what ever you choose

Think about lifting the gas tank 3" after the lift's in so you don't rip it out on obstacles,for mine I cut and re welded the tank hangers.

i put my 4crawler 1.5" BL myself in about 5 hours...fairly easy. i used a hilift and a floor jack and some 4X4's under the body. (sliders got in the way of the pinch weld). as stated earler...just check your gas lines, brake lines, rad shroud..n shifter stuff when youre jacking it up..sloooowly

Gas filler, easy fix with a piece ov pvc pipe and two hose clamps.
Also may have to cut bigger hole in trans tunnel. (If standard)
