Like it. Having lots of lights is handy during night offroad driving.

Well, I just got finished doing the bastard pack lift. I got about 2.5 in the front and what looks like about 3 in the back. I was really only hoping to get about 1 inch or so and improve the ride. I had to end up doing a t-case drop due to the bad vibes

It was a VERY labor intensive project, the threads and post on here are somewhat mis-leading in how hard this is going to be. At least for me it was hard. Maybe having a proper shop with access to lots of air tools and someone to help you would make it go lots smoother. Me........I did the majority of it in my gravel driveway. ( I had cardboard to lay on)

I did buy a large vise, 6 inch I think, a large pry bar (3 or 4 foot), a electric impact wrench from harbor freight (worth it's weight in gold if you don't have a compressor), and I already had a angle grinder with cut-off wheels, lots of bud lite lime, and a set of mechanics gloves (trust me)

things I wish I had doing this
-air compressor (obviously)
-large press...for the frame shackle bushings (you'll see )
-a lift, crawling under the jeep and bending over all the time sucks
-not started doing the lift and just saved up for a OME lift

---the back IS sitting up slightly higher, I actually did the front approx a year ago and just finished the rear yesterday, so I'm hoping for a little settling of the rear to even out, if not ...oh well

oh, and it's sitting on 235/75/15's until my wallet can afford some 31's

pics
only front done here


front pack finished


taken last night before the t-case drop (SYE later, got a fresh trans and t-case in the shed waiting to go in that that will go on)


hate to retype this so I'll prob copy and paste in the bastard pack thread as well

good luck

Finished the bastard pack! It was a pain in the as* but I happy with the turn out. I did the lift, a ZJ pitman drop, a TC drop, took off my track bars, took off the sway bar, relocated the brake lines to the bottom of the frame and of course the truck shocks. I also did some flexing this morning and it did awesome. heres some pics. first two are after and before.

That turned out REALLY good! If you're looking for extended brake lines for the front there is also a "cheap" solution. You can run two passenger side brake lines from a 99 dodge 2500. I will dig up a link for ya! I think I paid $12.50 or so a side from rockauto.com and they are much longer.

You can just search H380344 as a part number!

Cool deal, just curiously how does your hard line run under the hood? My lines for a while have just been hanging, the small bracket before the soft line on both sides have been just hanging, and it seems like the hard line may have been out of place? Mine runs down the passenger side of the frame and down.

My drivers side runs staight down from the master cylander to the frame, along the inside of the frame untill the wheel and on top of the frame was a hole were the begining of the soft line bolted and the hard line connected. The passanger side ran from the master down to the frame, to the grill, ran across tne front of the grill to the other side, ran along the passanger side of the frame to the tire were it mounted the same as the other side. Along the entire frame there are little clips that hold my lines in place, but yes the lines should bolt to the frame right were the hard line meets the soft line. I dont run bump stops on my jeep so to relocate my lines i just fliped the lines to the under side of the frame and put the soft line bracket bolt into the front bump stop bolt hole.
