9)
On vehicles equipped with manual trans or automatic transcribe a vertical line along the straight part of the transmission linkage. Scribe a vertical line along the length of the linkage extension provided in the kit.
10)
Cut the transmission linkage in half, through the scribed line.
11)
Place the linkage extension between the two halves of the transmission linkage, line up all three lines, and weld together. (RUSTY’S recommends
that all welding be done by a certified welder)
12)
Reinstall the lengthened transmission linkage to the stock mounting positions on the steering column and the transmission.

I have the Daystar and have no complaints. Directly replaces all parts that you take off, just taller pucks. Very sturdy feeling with steel inserts inside the poly puck. Was a pretty easy and straight forward install. I just rigged the fan shroud to mount lower - kinda 1/2 assed but works. I did need a tcase shifter bracket but that's b/c I also had to drop my tcase 1" for my 3" SL.

Those instructions aren't for a body lift, those are for a t-case bracket that relocates the t-case shifter so it doesn't bind after a body lift or t-case drop. The shifter doesn't always bind, mine didn't with either of those, but sometimes it can... that's what that bracket is for.

Oh, the shifter binds after a BL or t-case drop because one side is mounted to the t-case and the other is mounted to the tub. When they are no longer at the same height like after a BL is installed, the shifter mechanism can bind.

yeah after my bl my mechanism started binding but i cannot have that so i removed the rubber bushings on the bracket that is connected to the tub and used some huge washers on top of that to keep it all centered. Works like charm

I bought I think a Black Mountain brand off of Ebay for about $45 for a 1" and it is fine. Took about 1 hour to install with a beer break thrown in between sides.

cheapest way to go is talk someone with a 3" BL into going to a 1.5" and after he cuts his pucks in half take what he has left over and then just get 11 new bolts. WIN, WIN for both of you.
