Pumpkin

Hi all,

I have a regular wheeled hydraulic floor jack...but nowhere to put it on the jeep to lift the thing! Is is okay to lift the jeep by the pumpkin? I would put jackstands under it soon after, I'm just trying to figure out where I can lift it from.

Thanks.

That works or if your lifting one side at a time there is space inbetween the TC Skid Plate and the Frame Brackets. Thats my usual lifting point.

Hi guys!

Thanks. I'll be getting a set of RS9000's soon and I'll be needing to install them.



Hey, any hints on this? I'm going to soak all the bolts for two or three days before I change them to ease things up. Anything else?

I put the same shocks in my jeep not too long ago and it was a great investment! Believe me you will like how they feel.

My only hint was to buy new bolts for the back bottom mounts. Mine weren't too rusty but they can be tricky. My students in my auto class managed to cross thread them real easy so be careful!

Only other suggestion is make sure you have a nut breaking tool. They're pretty cheap and they will save you lots and lots of aggravation. The front shocks have a top post style nut and threaded rod. Soak those babies real good!

Good luck on a great mod!

Hmm, I don't have a nut breaking tool...darn, now I have to go by a tool! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Thanks J, much appreciated.
