    Nice build! How do you like having the hi-lift jack on the hood? I bought my rig with it mounted on the spare tire bar and it blocks half my view so I have been considering some other options.

    Well have a couple things to knock off the list of to doís. Letís start with the tie rod. The stock rod was as crooked as a Hillary. Sorry but I could resist. Once installed. Steering tightened up significantly. However I still need to get it aligned. The rod ends are much larger than stock, as well as the rod itself.

    First off. Sorry I didnít respond sooner. I just over looked your post. It was ok. I honestly got tired of not being able to use my windshield whippers to clean my windows and moved it to the rear. Other than that I never had any issues. Really wasnít in my way. If the dang thing wouldnít block the sprayers on the hood, it would still be there.

    Woohoo! Itís finally lift time. Went with the 3.5Ē Game Changer with Rocksport shocks.



    Beer break



    Realized we needed to do some trimming due to the C Gussets.

    Way Before....



    ...and after!

    Overall the install went really smooth. Honestly removing the old parts was the toughest. Had the upper front shock bolt break off while removing. Also, had the welded nut for the bar pin snap off. Thinking it was a poor weld. Doing this on the ground was challenging. Having a lift will make this much easier.

    I have to give it to you guys that do this type of work everyday. Itís tough. My fat ass was wore out when finished....and Iím still sore. Lol

    Feels great now. The drive to the alignment shop was a little wonky. Honestly it drives really well. Much stiffer than the stock suspension. There is less body roll...which made me realize how horrible the stock suspension was. So far Iím really impressed with how well the Rocksports do on road. They soak up the bumps in the road like a sponge.

    It will be a couple weeks before I get to flex it. Waiting on drivelines and fenders.

    Figured I needed to update the build. Front fenders are on. Also the gold diff covers put on.
