TJ Deluxe Kit from www.dpgoffroad.com

I just recieved the deluxe kit from dpgoffroad for my TJ. It came with the OME HD Coils, Shocks, MML, BL, JKS discos, and relocation bracket for rear trac bar. Ive seen a few write ups for the installation, but only bits and pieces for each portion of the kit. Im looking for a complete proceedure for the EXACT Kit that I have. The installation instructions that came with the kit seem pretty good, but I want this to be a one-day job and I really dont want to run into any surprises to slow me down. The more information I can gather, the better. So any and all tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated.

AS ALWAYS... STAY TISU

There's a certain way the OME springs have to go in as well. I don't recall exactly which goes where so you'll have to do a search, but one each of the front and rear springs is longer and they go on opposite corners of the jeep. Something about keeping it level.

I have experienced that with every car I have owned, and plan on that happening with the Jeep too!

yep, I put a target on the back wall of my garage so that when I get pissed enough to throw something I have a safe outlet. Its pretty banged up.

The taller front spring goes on the drivers side, the taller rear spring goes on the passenger side. I have a rubber mallet to smack the garage floor with when I get pissed. Soak the bolts with PB Blaster the night before, take your time, dont rush, and youll still get pissed.

Riverrat...wow you sound like me when it comes to all my projects. The easy ones are the worst.

It's not a kit really it's more like convience of buying all the parts you need to do the job right....from one palce for a good price.

http://www.4x4xplor.com/mods-TJ.html

The JKS Stuff here:

http://www.jksmfg.com/knowledge_base.htm

That should cover what you need.

Oh yeah PB Blaster and it's not going to be a one day job...plan on a weekend in case you run into problems.


Oh BTW: You did get written install instructions for the OME "Kit": Right? It should have been packaged in the envelope with the catalog and goodies.

If not...here you go

OME's instruction book is very well written and has a good check list to follow, take it slow and you'll be fine, i did their ultimate kit in one 12 hour stretch with one other person. I lucked out with him having air tools and a good floor jack, I'm sure that saved my energy quite a bit. my friend had done a similar kit once months before and i had never wrenched on anything really. so we weren't pro's but weren't stupid either. It was not really that hard.

hints:
read all the instructions and keep everything in its own box with it's own hardware till it goes on.

label everything you take off, noting exactly where it came from, you will put some of it back on or have it as back up for later either way you will want to know what it is fitting.

make sure you have a torque wrench, not to mention all the basics

find patient friend(s) and ply them with pizza, but not too many of them it will just be too many people standing around

pre drill and tap out your front spring pads with the proper tools rather than the "self tapping bolt" they break and it will suck, specially true if you have a rubicon

save the BL/MML for a second day, that is what i did

Have fun!
