Finally got my lift!!!

I ordered a complete kit from my local BDS dealer and had them install it.
Took one guy 6 hours to do it and do alignment. Kit was complete w/
Springs, shocks, T-case drop, brake relocation and track bar relocation brackets.

Guy had to sawzall off the 21 year old bolts on the intierior leaf spring
eyes. But other than that he said it went in smooth and they do alot
of the BDS lifts. $869 out the door including new bolts, shims and align.

I think it looks super cool compared to the tires being stuffed and rubbing,
I measured before and after and it lifted it 3" due to saggy old springs.

Time to hit the trail and finally flex it out!!

Thanks guys! I really like it lifted too! Rides better than stock. The guys at the shop were really funny. They could not beleive it
was an '89. I would bet the PO never had offroad. The alignment guy said " wow, your doors close so easy!" LOL. And was mesmerized
by the alignment specs. He was like.. " wow I can not believe it...." What I said? He goes.... " all those numbers are in the green!.... I have
never seen a 21 year old jeep with number like this... they are usually bent!"

I told him welll... when I come back for the 1000 mile realignment/retorq
do not expect green numbers! LOL
