Lift Help

so my lift from rough country camin today (4" suspension) and i have some questions. I plan on putting it on tomorrow with just me and my friend. we both know the basics and hope we can do the lift. what all tools should we need? i have impacts and wrenches and rachets and all of that. how should i place the jack stands and should i do the front first? if you guys could give me advice or a video or another thread or something like that. that would be great. thnks guys.

It is pretty straight forward. If you havent been soaking all of the bolts with pb blaster for the last week or so...go do it now. Be prepared to cut the shackle bolts off. They will chew up sawzall blades so get a few. Disassembly will be the hardest part. Place the jackstands as close as you can to the solid spring hanger. You will need a jack under the axle. Have fun and dont forget the pics.

if you have a 2nd person, great! Piece of cake.....but definitely give the bolts a good soaking. I did it myself and no air tools. Did rear one day and the front the next. Take your time and should be easy for you. For me the hard part was that I felt I could have used a 2nd set of hands for the transfer drop bracket/bars. Other than that it was pretty easy as most people said.....
Why did I wait so long to buy my first jeep??

that is how i did it, by myself and no air tools and in one day.
A lot of teenagers are people who express a burning desire to be different be dressing exactly alike.
Panties aren't my favorite, but they're right next to it...
No one is normal, there are just a lot of weird people with things in common.
