you unbolt T-case skid plate from the jeep(jack under skid), add as many washers as necessary b/w frame and skid and put the bolts back

its easy as hell .... borrow a motorcycle / atv jack if you can, makes life very easy.

as stated before:

jack up the jack
unbolt skid
lower jack enough to fit spacers in
put in spacers
put bolts in
jack up the jack
tighten
go wheelin

The instructions in my RE kit made it even easier--no jack required. Loosen all 6 bolts, then drop the three on one side. Insert the spacers and new bolts hand tight. Repeat on the other side then torque everything in.

I would also loosen the four bolts on the Transfer case mount. This will allow it to move when the T-Case is lowered.

Tools
Ratchet and sockets, Torque wrench.
Recomended Torque is 55 ft lbs.

You may need longer bolts if you're just adding washers. I did not, and I lowered mine about 1/2 inch.
I've since installed the JKS BB and BMML so I removed the t-case drop.
