lol I was going to put my pc in the garage for the day, the pictures in the instructions are so hard to see, also the ground wire under the hood, we could not get that off, will that affect lifting? We're going to try and unbolt it from the engine instead tomorrow because it would not unscrew from the body.

Yeah I'll probably take a torch to the bolt and see if we can get it off, I highly doubt we will get everything done tomorrow since I won't have a lot of time to work on it. Spring breaks next week so the truck might be down for this week, but it depends on how much we get done tomorrow, we'll see what happends, I'm in no rush I want to do this right. Already learned quite a bit about it lol so far a great experience.

nah man 6 hours for the bed and cab.. that last damn cab bolt got us, kept having to run back and forth between garages to grab bolts and what not. It was a PITA plus our torches kept dieing, all the cab bolts are out, only left in the 2 on one side so we can start jacking it up tomorrow, my plan is to get all the cab blocks in, get everything bolted down, tightened, and to reconnect everything under the hood tomorrow. Should go faster this time since we know what we are doing now lol, part of it was just learning/finding all the things to remove since the pictures in the instructions sucked.

Well my body lift installation is 95% complete, at least it's drivable, going to take it for a spin after I eat, started and runs fine we didn't even need to use the radiator and transmission cooler extensions everything reached fine no kinks. **** ONE PROBLEM, I noticed that when I started it up, it ran fine but I went to turn the wheel and sometimes it would wobble really bad, like i could feel it, the steering extension was really tight, I'm thinking we got air in the power steering fluid or something.. I'm not sure?

Here's the rest of the pics. I'll upload them later gonna take a bit and i need to go test drive

good to hear. i don't know it about the wobbling...and its not an alignment...almost positive it isn't an alignment (only reasoning, IMO, is that if it didnt do it b4 why now). cant wait to see the pics!
o i got my friends snap on breaker bar but then i just bought an impact and the bed bolts come out so easy haha cab ones look like they'll give trouble.

There is no reason for you to need an alignment. I have no idea why you have a wobble, that doesn't make sense. Can you feel the wobble on the steering shaft?

It's fine when driving doesn't wobble, its like when it's stopped it sometimes wobbles, I just took it down in the pit to get it dirty and it was fine, its doing it less and less now so I think I just got air in it. Pics coming

we had to impact those front core support bolts out lol those things were in there so good... one problem though again you can see where the bumper was bolted to befor under the bumper in that pic like the brackets are sticking out.. I don't know why.. I learned a lot though.. it was a fun experience and everything went good.

I'll get better pics once I clean it and get everything back together, wont be for a few days
