12.5 gruesome hours later, i am officially double lifted

I got my body lift done by myself. It sucked but its done. I also got my 08 fx4 seats. I have pics of the seats but it got to dark for the lift pictures. All I have to do is make rear gap guards and lift my bumpers and that's it.

The seats:

Nice. Ya man it sucks doing a body lift by yourself. But I didn't want to wait till the central texas meet so I guess I paid a little price.

Never done a BL myself, but 12.5 hours seems like a pretty quick amount of time especially for only one guy.

Truck i'm sure looks good. Get pics up ASAP.

we need effing pics now! looks like the seats need a good cleaning! A Bissel Green Machine and some simple Green and the solution that comes with the Green Machine does great at keeping the seats clean. If you don't want to fork out the $70 for the Bissel, go to Advance and get a can of OXY upholstery cleaner with the brush on the can.

spray the seats good, let it soak, then brush them, then spray again and and agitate. Then let dry. When i cant use the Bissel, I do this and it works pretty good! you will learn to hate the fabric on those seats man! the gray gets dirty and heaven forbit if you get a water drop on them because they show it if they are anything dirty.

yeah i paid 135 for both by 04 seats from an edge. 100 is a good price.


Since you are going to need to buy new tires again. you think you can ship up your 33 KOs up to me? I need them. Bad.

Oh and don't forget you are gonna need to get an 8.8 and have it regeared to 4.88s and put on discs. Otherwise you won't be able to run bigger tires.

Lol I would man but I just got these like a month and a half ago. Im gonna wear them out till I need new ones. Plus the price you'd pay in shipping alone, you might as well go to a discount tire and get some. Im getting a full disc 8.8 next month so ill be good there

I'm assuming you are getting the 8.8 from an Expo?

You gotta watch the gears on those. They very rarely came with 4.10s, mostly 3.55s and 3.73s.

Plus, depending on the mileage you will need to rebuild the Trac-Lok. The clutches get worn out every 100k or so.

Or you could jut it and install a locker and get it regeared.

Once you get over 33s in tire size you really have to start considering other stuff like axles, tranny, and engine power.

That should fine then. As long as it has 4.10s. Most likely it won't. 3.73s are what most of them run. 33s on 3.73s are bad enough. 35s on 3.73s are a drive-train killer.

Hate to be the voice of pessimism. That's the facts though.
