I figured I would document my install in case anyone else wants to see things about a lift and want to try to do it on their own.
This is an install of a SkyJacker 2.5 lift with SkyJacker shocks, new bushings for top of shackles.
This Jeep has 118K on it and never off-road as far as I can tell. Pretty much everything came off withoout any real issue. Jeep is a Texas truck so no rust issues.
The only real gotcha between what is in the insructions and what should have been in them is you need to disconnect the front track bar from the axle to be able to get the U bolts to line up easily. Other than that, it was prety straight forward.
Pics of when I bought it a couple of months ago, bad motor, ugly tires, etc....
Pics of the current 31/10.50 15's next to my 90 Wrangler.
Pic of the front tire distance between fender flare and tire.
Pic of the rear tire distance - this is before the lift
Here is the difference between the old spring and the new one.
Here is the front spring difference
Here is the front tire and flare measurement
Here is the rear measurement.
And here is a pic of the Jeep as of today.
I have pics of the entire install so if anyone wants to see those I can add those to this thread.
I hope this helps others on their install decisions.
