The lift itself was really easy to follow. I'd never done it before and it took me 16 hrs as I did it myself with a torque wrench and socket set. and had a seized nut and then my rear tire lugnut got stripped.

I would suggest but some anti seize and add it to each bolt you loosen or replace. If its older like mine (09)I would use some comes coke-a-cola on the bolts to break the surface rust. There are a ton of "zone lift" videos on YouTube. I watched like 4/5 different ones a dozen times each. Lol.
Good luck and shoot me some pics when you finish.

Aww crap. I know how much you were anticipating this line. This is so wrong on so many fronts. I hope they make it right with at least a refund. Keep us posted please.

As close as I can show. Maybe it will help. The plastic clips come off fairly easy and can be reinserted.

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Glad you got it all straight. I've got a 2013 Rubi so hopefully nothing is seized up and I'm really hoping to ride won't be worse than the stock rubicon springs and shocks. I'm pretty happy with the ride. I'm crossing my fingers that I won't need the track bar, but haven't ruled out the possibility.

Thanks for the feedback and ill have some pics after the weekend!

Details here.

Please pass the word so others don't get screwed.

I know I'm not getting anything from Olympus any time soon. As a matter of fact, I don't think I'm ever going to. I'm pretty sure it's very disappointing to order one thing and get another. It doesn't matter if its hard to get the lime green going, if you don't got it then don't advertise it and do it until its actually the color it should be. Also, if the color is coming off, I wouldn't trust it regardless of what Olympic says. Trust your gut, they won't be out there to save your ass when you need it.

Get the track bar and cam bolts you're gonna need it. I'm very happy with my 3'' lift rides great.

Removed some stupid chrome things on the steering wheel. Anyone know what they are and how much I could get for em? They're only plastic.

If you have a Rubi you might want to flip the edisco motor. (Edisco flip mod).
