Today, I put in my junkyard D44 with a Limited Slip, swapped out a new front spring that had been sagging, and replaced a nutsert in the frame for my t-case skid. While we were at it, we tack welded the rest of them to make sure that they don't spin if I ever have to remove any of the bolts again. I wasn't sure how I was going to do the last one but I did a search on here to find out how others had done it. In the end, I followed the advice of mrblaine and got an OEM nutsert from the local dealership and it went great. Turned out to be a easier fix than I expected. We quartered the lip of the nutsert and hammered them off, leaving the nut inside the frame which I removed with a magnet. Then we put the new nutsert in the frame, tacked it down and compressed it to make sure it was set properly. It worked out perfectly. I even ordered a few extra just in case I might have needed them. I will just save them for someone else in the club who makes the same mistake I did.

I installed a 1.25" BL, 1" MML, and a Skyjacker TT, and gained 3.25" of clearance under the skid plate!

Funny thing, the Skyjacker TT only works with automatic transmissions and I have a manual, and Quadratec's website didn't mention this (though upon further investigation, every other retailer did... oops). And I literally figured this out at 4:30 on a Friday before a three-day weekend. And to make things worse, The Shovel had such a large dent in the middle that the sides flared out and the bolt holes didn't line up any more (it actually "sprung" open when I removed the bolts) so my only vehicle was undrivable until I solved this predicament.

So, being unable to bend the Shovel back into shape, and not wanting to wait until sometime late next week for a new skid plate to arrive, I figured out how to make it work, and it only took a few new holes and a bit of trimming. Pretty good considering my only power tools are battery-powered and I'm still learning what bits of my vehicle are called. Some day, I'll have air tools and a welder, and look back at this and marvel at how primitive I was, similar to when I switched from VHS to DVD's...

Gonewhln, the lift looks very good. Will you be putting tires on also?
Sorry. Couldn't help myself.
