Finished putting on my 2in skyjacker BB and four new shocks by myself today. Considering I have done very little vehicle maintenance or work on previous vehicles, I am pretty proud! It did take me longer than normal, but the rear went much quicker than the front because I learned a few things along the way. Getting it aligned now, can't wait to take it out Sunday!!

Congrats! It is great sense of accomplishment when you under take a project and finish it without help. Before long you'll be wanting to install a long arm kit!

Ya, they are 31x10.50. I am thinking about going to 32s this January. I'll let you know after this weekend how it does, driving to work tomorrow and jeeping this weekend.

Thats a noticeable amount of lift, you souldn't have any problem clearing 32s.
Ya, I'm just worried about my 3.07 gearing and the stock tire carrier/tailgate, if it can hold them without warping.

Congratulations!! I just did that this morning!
How long did it take you? Took me about 4 hrs on the front, then only 2 for the back( I finally figured out what the heck I was doing!!)

I really like the way it looks now!

About the same time. The back is much easier (1.5hr). The front gave me troubles. I had a tough time with the springs (5 hours). Now I did do a few other things while it was torn apart.

Besides, it ain't the size of the lift, is how ya drive it, "mud it like a man!!"
