BL is on its way....

while its on its way, i would like to gather as much info as i can from other members who have previously installed one themselves.

i pretty much have a good understanding on how to install it. my question is what problems/obstacles may i come across during the install? as in: what to watch out for, things to know, where to start, ect... ect...

any and all info to help this install go smooth(er) will be great and much appreciated.

You dont have to undo your ebrake cable just be careful when jackin up, take your fan shroud off and push ALL the way forward then pick the radiator up outta the perches and move it all the way forward, just go ahead and get a propane torch and heat cab bolts until tips are slightly red and have someone up top with a impact ready to go. make sure you follow innstructions. there pretty good and always double check EVERYTHING and make sure you put the bracket on for the A/C line to get it off the belt!!!!
