Wifey gave me $200 in Qtec gift certs, and I have been sitting on them now for awhile. I already have my new cowl seal and windshield glass seal. I also already have new mirrors to install. I want a 1 1/2" - 2" BL to go along with my 2.5" RC spring lift. What else should I get? Nothing extravagant... only the things relative to getting it on the road. Here's pic of abput where it's at.

Needs a clutch. *note- Bill gave me a deal on a slightly used Centerforce clutch, and I haven't opened the box. Bill, what else do I need to go along with that install, or is everything in the box? Alignment tool??

Brakes. It has manual brakes. Jeff Calvert swapped me a CJ power brake setup. All I gotta do is install it. Anything else I'm going to need?

Gauges. Factory and don't work.

Factory dizzy. Plan to team Rush it. Any add-ons to make it better?

What else should I be considering?

Alignment for the clutch just use your fingers and feel that it is even all the way around.

I love the team rush upgrade. Although, Qtech gift certificates won't get get you that, it's not that expensive. It's a great upgrade for the money. Seat of the pants....eh. But watching a tach...I see the difference. It's quite an improvement.

You only want a 1" body lift. Don't need anything else for the clutch except a pilot bearing. And TIME.

You asked homie! Definitely do the 1" Daystar. I like the classic look, and the 1" is just right. I think they should have rolled out like that.

Any word on the carpet?

Scott,

The turn signal lever was EASY to spot, the missing button in your bench seat was a little harder.
