I had to extend to ground straps, one on the back of the motor and another on the passenger side frame rail, I also had to relocate my electric 4wd wire loom on my transfer case. Lastly of course I used the brackets to drop down my radiator but I know some people said they didnt do that and it was ok. Other than that just remember to rebend your brake lines if its needed and fuel lines.

well i just finished, i actually had QUITE the issue haha. don't laugh, it was a brain fart on my end. i had the shifter extension and the steering extension sitting in my box of lift parts...and when it came time to extend my steering linkage, i grabbed (what i thought was) the steering extension and tried hooking it up....and it didnt fit right, so without even thinking to try the other extension i drilled, cut, grinded it until it worked perfectly....so i get the whole truck up and i'm getting ready to extend my shifter. well i grab (what i thought was) the shifter extension and i was like....wait a second...this isn't right, so i realized what i had done wrong....i got the extensions swapped. OH CRAP!! haha. so i took the shifter extension off of the steering extension and replaced it with THE ACTUAL steering extension. worked fine. well then i get to putting in the shifter extension, and i had grinded it to almost nothing. my bad.....so to sum it up i ended up taking it completely off and having to weld the extension.


other than that i had no issues with the lift. next thing is to replace the 31's with 33's!!
