Lift questions.

I'll be piecing together my lift, tax time 3.5" fabtechs, bilstiens , etc etc. Its my dd I know I can't do it all in one day. So should I lift it and drop the tcase til I can get the sye in? All parts will be bought at the same time but I'm lookin at a 2 weekend project.

it can be done in a day, depending on if you have many stuck bolts or bushings. it took me 2 days to do mine but I'm old and slow.
read a few installation threads to get familiar with everything.
you can always do half one weekend then finish the next. it will look funny but its been done before.

With a set of impact sockets and a nice impact wrench you can have the lift done in 4 hours or less. The sye may take 4 hours depending and any hang ups.

You can do it in one day. Drop off the Cherokee shaft with the driveline company the day before and tell them to await measurements. Then do the SYE and then the lift. Call in the measurement and put the jeep in 4wheel drive (read FRONT wheel drive) and pick up the shaft.

I have faith in you. You can do it alone but friends sometimes speed up the process.
