Rough Country BB lift Question
 
1 Attachment(s)
I got a Rough Country TJ Coil Spacer Lift today (model 650), the box had more in it than the instructions listed.

In the picture attached you will see what it had. The red box is obvious what that is, the yellow box, I know those are extended bumpstops, but the directions don't say if they are for the front or back and their are only two, in fact the directions say to reuse the original bumpstop.

The parts in the green box, looks like a body lift puck, but are hard plastic the box contained two of these. The directions never mention where to put them.

The blue box is a bag with two bolts and two carter pins, but once again the directions never say where to use them.

Could anyone help me with where to install these? I plan to go back to the local retail store tomorrow and ask them, but thought if I could get some internet help it would save me a trip. I checked roughcountry.com for updated directions and searched google but didn't find what I needed.

Thanks in advance

red: coil spacer. must be installed on top of the springs

yellow: front bumpstop extension. that replaces teh bumpstop rubber in the front

blue/green: rear bump stop extension. remove the rear BS rubber. inside the metal thing there is a bolt. remove the bolt (17 mm nut IMO) and the metal thing. install the green thing inside a coil spacer with the blue bolt above the metal thing.

after that it should look like this in the rear:

this is only a 1" spacer in the rear, here you can see the "green part" inside the spacer:

I just installed this kit two weeks ago. The instructions sucked !

I installed this kit also about 3 months ago. If you are only putting in a 2" BB you are probably not going to need to put the extended bumpstops in. I put mine in and sold my old bu,pstops on Ebay and then found out why the ride was so rough, Ended up having to cut the extended bumpstops down with a saws all, but I never figured out what the carter pins were for. If anyone knows please let me know.
