jks body lift install... please help!!

ok so i started the body lift last night because i just couldnt wait.. all these parts just laying around in the garage... any who i started the body lift and finished it up only problem is i had to disconnect the gas fill hose cause i heard it starting to crack that plastic.. now i cant get it to re-attach.. i tried to carefully pull on it to see if it would get me some more slack... but nothing...

is there anyone w/suggestions as to how i can get more slack out of the hose???

ok so i figured out the gas tank problem.. but after a bL is there supposed to be such a huge angle for the steering linkage?? mine almost looks as if it wouldnt even turn... i havent started the car to turn the wheel yet as im on the mml install at the moment.. just wondering if the angles are to be that extreme..

My filler hose is tight too with the JKS BL. I just got my hand up in there from underneath (moved the wheel well liner out of the way) and slowly tightened down the 4 screws around the fill opening.

As for the steering, my angle was changed a bit too. Wasn't a problem - still isn't 2 years later.

2" bl.. came with relocation bracket for the steering and also came with extension hose for the gas fill hose. I gues you can go to some hardware store and look for a 3" long metal pipe and use that. For the steering relocation bracket.. mine was a block with few screws that mounted right by the drivers fender. One bolt went in from the top and there was another one from the side. Dont remember exactly how.

I'm running:

JKS 1.25" BL
JKS 1" BMML
JKS Quicker Discos
JKS Adj trackbar front/rear
OME HD lift - springs and shocks

Essentially the Ultimate kit, though it was pieced together over time. Only thing I'm missing is the JKS adj control arms.
