body lift install
...special thanks to my long time friend, "big mac". your help, last night, was invaluable.

-get your shiz ready...


-take off grill


-loosen, but do not remove, all body bolts and retainer nuts (on both sides)
-pick a side and remove all nuts and bolts
-jack the tub up using wood in between your tub and jack (a few pieces may be needed).
-once mounts are removed, add extenders and mounts
-reinstall but do not tighten
-repeat on other side
-then tighten all bolts to torque specs
-reinstall grill


the back bolts are boogers! mine looked a little weird


-once everything is tightened, if you have a manual transmission, you'll have to trim the inner boot around your shifter to allow it to stay in gear in 2nd, 4th, 6th, and R...if you don't trim, you'll be popping out of gear!
-pull nob straight off...just pull hard, it'll come off.
-remove outer boot (pry up w/ fingers)
-use exacto or utility knife to trim boot (first put in 2nd then r, marking outter boundaries
-cut for range of motion...trial and error (i actually thought i trimmed enough the first time, but i didn't, so i had to take outer boot off to retrim, so try first before putting outer boot on)


holy sh!z...daystar is getting a call from me tomorrow

Looks like a material problem. Take a picture of the head. Looks from here to be a grade 2 zinc hex head. Probably should have used at least G5 if not G8.

Where did you find that bike rack for so cheap?

Can you PM me the name of this wholesale shop down in Pearland? I'm in the Galleria area & take delivery of my '09 JK this weekend.

yeah, the more i look at it, the more i think theres got to be something wrong w/ that one. all the others torqued fine.

i'm going to call them today, so i'll let you all know how that goes when it does.

here's another view of looking at what happened...the nut itself was oem equipment that's reused. the stud from the extender is actually the problem and what came off

churnin' rubber

mileage: 10917

performed a five tire rotation today...




...it was a little overdue, and i figured since i have 2 jacks, right now, it would go a little faster.







...anyone know where i can get some goodyear or bfg 33"s (~285/70r17) on the cheap?
