recoil101..sent you a pm.

today...hmmmm lets see....kinda went like this

followed by

which was then followed by
:
and continued on with

which preceeded to move into

which all just makes me want to


started to install the new lift... let me begin by saying darn jeep forum language filter....
pros: nice powder coat
welds all look good
mounting points are braced well
cons: went from 1/4 bracketry to 3/16
holes dont line up right
instructions leave abit to be desired

the instructions are just this side of . i feel bad for any non-mechanically inclined person to even attempt this. the instructions are confusing and incorrect in places and i didnt even get to page 4. there is no way things that are written can happen in real time. not one pic to clarify or help offset the technical writting.

there not terrible per se', just not as clear and detailed as they should be in certain areas. use 6 bolts to mount this... ahhh not going to happen. can only use 4. use 4 bungs to mount this... ahhh not going to happen, use 2 stock bolt holes and okay, 2 bungs. that works. maybe its a difference in model year thing, if thats so...say it, address it. whatever.

that being said, i searched the forum, read through bennettj's install on the kit and..... finally got over my OCD about the fitment/holes and got the brackets mounted in the only place they would bolt onto the frame and moved on.

where the frame brackets and the rear CA mount bracket meet, the bolt surfaces are atleast 1/4 away from each other. huh? really?

the motor and trans were mocked up with the old xmember which was in a 'stock location.' with the new xmember, there is no 'pre-drilled set of holes that line up. great.

so onto the headers.... sexy, very sexy... however....the stock steering....yeah not going to 'drop back into place.perfect.

trust me i understand this is what happens when you build something...custom. but seriously.

so tomorrow i will go at it again after the denist appointment..yay.

resolve the transmount issue. find spacers for the gaps in the brackets. weld in 2 bungs, drill a bunch of holes in my frame. not necessarily in that order

Well there are plenty of 3rd kids in what would have been 4 person families. J/K Thought that might get a laugh or two. This build just keeps getting sicker buy the update.

well they have multiple transmount locations in the side crossmembers but I imagine none of thos locations will work for you considering your custom setup. Yes I agree the instructions leave something to be desired. I PMd you my phone number in case you have any questions and need a real time answer. Did you get the high clearance belly option?

thanks all... and yep no progress tonight. the dentist appointment kicked my @ss today. 5 shots of novacaine. good bone structure or something like that. so yeah i was still getting numb after i left the drill factory. i went to the shop... fixed a few cars, drooled all over myself and bit my lip a few times. figured it was time to go home. passed out for a few hours in the chair. had feeling back when i woke up around 11pm. great.... now im just sore from the needles and stretch. i feel like i went a few rounds.

yes i got the high clearance option on the pan. after thinking about it.. i am probably just going to C-clamp the brace where i need it, drill new holes and through bolt it with 3/8 stuff, stnd hex head. then i am going to clearance the skid [drill 4- 3/4" holes] to clear the bolt heads. with the skid being 1/4 thick, the bolt head will still be recessed and all will be good. im not a big fan of the allen head counter sunk stuff. the allen heads are, or can, be 'unforgiving' and strip too easily for our liking...especially when subjected to northeast wheeling environments.

the steering i believe i have a solution on that as well. i need to get a new piece of D shaft, 2 new steering joints and a support bearing or 2. i have to loose the large factory bushing and replace the factory shaft with a longer one. this will move the top steering knuckle closer to the fire wall- by collasping the upper shaft a few inches. that will give me the necessary clearance for the steering joint to turn.

ill post a few more pics in a minute, have to load them up.
