Mine was done in what....5 hours? The whole thing except the rear bumper. It's not that difficult if you have experienced people and read the directions.

Two people minimum though.

Just whip out those instructions....read 'em over. please.


What kit did you get? Summit or PA? PA instructions have pics which are nice to look at. I can probably email you them if you got the summit kit.

USING SHIMS! Not washers. lol. Shims designed for our use. Are places between the top of the frame and the bottom of the top half of the Jnut.

alrighty updaty time, regretfully removed the washers , "i was totally looking for a way to One Up you other BL guys!" removed the rear bumper , and noticed the new kit brackets are stamped the same way (like not right/left specific is this a problem?) I did read my crap instructions that came with the kit , summit bl kit, and saw stones excellent sticky. So i am armed with more knowledge than before.
My fuel extensions included in the kit were too big to fit the stock rubber filler/vent hoses , so i skateboarded down to home depot HAhah and got some things i think will do the trick. I am going to finish up the fuel dilemma tomorrow and see if i cant get the rear bumper on.
Gonna need a hand with the cab so i shall see what happens .

the notch\bend was the same as the bend for the pass side so , one bracket worked the other did not... i drilled out new holes but unfortunately i was not able to get it quite right and my bumper has a lien in it or in other words one side is higher than the other.
very frustrating !
i have two options.
A: wait and see if summit send another bracket piece with correct holes, and try again.
B: run what i got and weld the bracket into the correct spot.

Unclip the battery cables at the back of the a/c compressor. That cleared up all my tightness issues of the positive battery cable. Don't bolt the harness back onto the block.
