Woody update:

Well, the only progress I've made on the wheels is coming to the conclusion that I will have them professionally done Found a restoration shop that will blast them and clear coat them for me.

Still on the hunt for some mint condition center caps. DO NOT want to pay teamgrandwagoneer for new ones

On another note...

The cup holder/trey thingy is working out GREAT! Really enjoying it

Woody update:

Been gone for a minute... but back again!

Project Woody continues! I've been driving it quite a bit. Running like a champ. Really enjoying the nearly new interior.

I'm FINALLY ready to get some things on the never ending list done.

Ordered the RC 3" all spring suspension lift today, should be here by the weekend. I was really tore between the 2" BJ's lift since I want to keep it as close to the factory look as possible, plus all the reported "ROUGH RIDES" with the RC springs. I just couldn't justify the price difference of over $400 for a weekend rider. RC got me out the door for $711.35 total... includes steering stabilizer, shock boots, & shipping. Excited to get it on so I can get some fresh 32x11.5 BFG A/T's on!!

Lift Kit arrives!

The UPS man created an obstacle for anyone coming out of the front door

I am anxious to get this installed, but I'm slammed with work this weekend

I plan to start on it next Friday, the 27th!

Billy,
Take lots of pics. I am tackling the same project in a couple of weekends. Let me know the good/bad and ugly. Shock replacement, hardware used etc.
Thanks

Holy Crap! So my last post of the lift kit arriving was mid September. I finally just backed the Woody in the garage to start on this. I did pre soak everything with PB Blaster and took a wire brush to any exposed threads on u-bolts etc. I really think that helped a lot. These bolts haven't been touched since the late 80's and wow... what a struggle. Thank god my jack handle fits perfectly over my 1/2 drive's handle making the perfect breaker/leverage bar!

Need lift kit help!

Hopefully someone can help with these 2 questions

Please see pictures for details.

Question #1:
On the Passenger Side Rear Spring... There is a metal brake line that sits in between the new spring and the frame. The factory spring did not touch it, but of course the curvature of the new 3" RC spring is different and looks like it is going to sit right on the brake line. Could this be a problem? Pinch point? Relocate it? Anyone who's installed the 3" springs from Rough Country had this issue? Any help is appreciated!

Question #2:
On the Driver Side Rear Spring... The front spring bolt is easily accessible(socket sitting on bolt head in pic), but the nut is not. On the other side I simply reached inside the frame to get to it. The gas tank is on the passenger side so I can not even see it. Do I need to remove the gas tank skid plate to get to it? Any help would be appreciated.

On that e-brake cable, I flipped the hold down over so the cable was lower, no clearance issues once everything was reassembled.
