orange05tj but when your done the next time, you'll be able to do another BB in about 2 hours. Theres a couple tricks I used to make it a lot easier.

speepdaedeesi yes, and no..

yes because it always feels good to do a job yourself

no because i didnt put those stock spring insulators in.. and lost like 1/2 inch of lift lol.

but hey, theres always next time!

KellyK arent ya glad you put them in yourself? pat on the back ...

orange05tj never noticed. even with my 3" lift, i have the stock insulator and 1" spacer to level it off. The winch made it sag.

speepdaedeesi good then im gonna hang on to them until i get some better front springs. as you can see mine have some sag.

did it raise it that extra .70 inch when you put them back in?

speepdaedeesi great.. im not looking forward to getting those insulators back in lol

do they have to be in for any mechanical reason, or just to add that extra 2/3'' of lift

orange05tj the rubber piece you are referring to is the insulator, and you should put it back in. looks good.

i just put a 2 inch in last weekend and it was a pia, took like 5 hours on front, 5 on back. but then again, we were complete novices.

so are you gonna update tires or keep the same?

when you did yours did you put the origional spacer looking things back in on the front?

there were some spacer looking rubber things that look just like the spacer, only under an inch high.. we took them out..


im keeping these tires until they go bald.

they are 31x10.50 muds

im a novice to it too, we just had air tools. my buddies garage has every tool imaginable to man lol

question on front spacers and pics of install

QUESTION- SHOULD I HAVE PUT THE STOCK RUBBER MATS BACK IN ON THE FRONT? THEY ARE A RUBBER PEICE THAT LOOKS LIKE THE SPACER EXCEPT THIN, LIKE UNDER AN INCH.

I didnt put them back in.. but i did save them. figured if they needed to go back in id do it when i put some new springs in up front. i definately have some saggage.


install is done. wasnt too bad-- 3 hours. the back was a breeze.. only problems there was getting the stock bump stop cups into the spacers. instructions said to use wood and a bfh but we had to use a vise. no biggie.

front took 2 hours. mainly figuring out how to get the springs out. yeah. i didnt remember the sway bars lol. once we did it went smooth.


spacers were a pia to get hammered up onto the stock mount. tight fit!



bump stop didnt want to hammer in. i made him go into his new home.
