Today I took off my new crossmember because it was becoming clear that it wasn't the right one. I used a hammer and lots of anger and managed to salvage my old one. Then I put it back on and it's MUCH better

worked again on my lift kit. Rear is finished except the shocks which are on the way. Got the front CA's and the left coil spring installed. Tomorrow right coil spring and front shocks will be in. Still struggle to get the panhard off...

here is the result of yesterdays work in my garage...gives an instant idea what it will look like when it's finished. Front will come down a little as it is still jacked up. Looks funny with the 31's.

what net lift I've got I haven't measured yet. 6" and 5,5" is just calculated from the 4,5 RE lift plus the 1,5" spacer at front and 1" shackles in rear.
