I'm still in the process of replacing mine still. I have a 5 day weekend so i'll get it done then. Right now I ground the heads down enough the skid plate slid over them. So i'll try again with a pipe wrench. If they don't come out i'll cut them off and re tap the hole.
how bad is the RC and that BL? Reason asking I have a 3 inch body and dont know if it is going to be a PITA to take off, cut bushings, find new hardware, etc. and thinking about leaving it on for the time being...
How much all in all did the kit and replacement parts cost you? And did you get rid of the sway bar and all that?
The kit costs $500 shipped ($50 shipping), then you have to consider other hardware, universal joints, brake lines, specialty tools, etc.
$80 brake lines, $25 for hard lines and bending tool, $15 per joint, you really can't add it all up because it's always different and you can never really keep track. Just make sure you have maybe $200 in hand for things you may run into during the lift.
The kit comes with relocating brackets for all the stock sway and trac bars but if you don't want to re install them then it's just less work. You're going to need replacement hardware for the shocks and springs. I believe you get shock stem bolts, bushings and washers, but they expect you to re use everything else.
