if getting in and out of the garage is a problem, take out the body lift (so body is sitting factory again) and dont bolt it down, then once your done with the sas, roll that sum ***** outta the garage and install the body lift again in the driveway... no big deal... easy fix.

I would like to be able to keep it in the garage so its out of everyone's way. The truck doesn't need to be that tall anyways. A lot of lift isn't exactly what I was looking for by doing this, its just a side effect.

If someone did that, they would be retarded. All you have to do is just let the air out of your tires and then refill them once youre outside, or find a set of stock wheels/tires or something to bolt up to it for 5 minutes...

front pushbar thing
winch.

shifter
gotta make room for the steering box and possibly shock hoops.

plus the BL makes pulling the t-case/trans easier. haha

Dont worry about the thread jack, I don't have any updates yet so why not talk about something else? I'm down for going to midland when I get my truck done. Its coming slow though, I spent 2 days thinking about how I'm gonna do the track bar mount. I finally got one piece cut out today, maybe I can get the other tomorrow and get it welded on. We'll see.


I did a bunch of measuring tonight and it looks like I'll be getting 7" of lift over what it was with the RCD. I was hoping to keep it around 4 but doesn't look like thats gonna happen. I don't really wanna take the body lift off I've modded so much junk to fit with it on there haha. It would be a ton of work.

I won't cut the coils. I'll get new ones before I do something like that. It wouldn't be hard to lift the back up to match the front though if it comes down to it.

So you are looking at about 13" of total lift (w/ BL)? Gonna be pretty tall.

Probably closer to 15" but if it is 13" that would be even better.

Yeah I would lose some. Thats why if I do lower it removing the body lift would be best.
