about budgeting time to do it, one thing i learned the hard way last weekend, i went to swap out my IFS, now this is my first time doing any kind of lift so it was all new to me, this is my DD so i got started early sunday morning, will ended up not fitting, just barrly, fighting for hrs and i ended up not being able to finish it that nite due to closes being closed. this next weekend ill start on saturday morning and i should be done b4 dinner now that i know what im doing and have the right tools. the point that im trying to get at is ya u can do a body lift in 45 min, but thats with 2 people that have done it b4? with all the right tools hands? first time for almost anything takes longer,

Spray those bolts asap though doug435!!!!!!!! helps big time, PB all the way!!!

I'm doing mine in a couple weeks, and I've done one ugly one on a ranger, no spray on bolts, and alot of extra work. I bet I can get my bed done in an hour (with taking a PITA toolbox off and liner, and possibly grinding two bolts down , then the cab shouldn't be that bad, got a efan too, guessin 3 hours on that to give me room for a custom bracket for the intake and wire extension on the efan (was a dumbass and didn't leave enough slack.

and gonna spray the bolts over a week in advance so should go smoothely
