well i got it today and installed it...no pics of the install...too busy working...any way still need to put the rear shackels on...it sits about 1.5 inches higher in the front...here is the only pic i have. still have to put the skid plate on, and the torsion bar skid on (need some new bolts) and i think i have to pull the brake dust shields off......what have u guys done? and i need to put one more bump stop on...need a new bolt there too. any way here is a pic next to a stock 4x4...it is my buddys and we were about the same height before....i was taller in the back but in the front we were about the same...

Looks like you should do something about that rear brake hose, did you get the drop bracket for it with your kit?
As for the dust shields I just trimmed mine to fit around the tie rod end. I should have taken some pics but I just cut straight up from where there tie rod used to be, and then smoothed the edges with the bench grinder.
I didn't have any issues with the shocks or the diff cover hitting the crossmember so I couldn't tell you what to try there! Does the axle only hit the shock at full droop or does it contact at ride height as well?

well the clamp on the cv shaft boot hits the shock all the time....and i didnt get any of the brake line relocators with the kit....so im gonna need to make some. and i need some limit straps because at full drop my cv shaft binds....so the super lift shocks aren't supposed to limit down travel? but i cant imagine how coil overs are supposed to fit in there is normal shocks cant...any way here are some poser action shots.....those shackles flex extremely well...

Looks great!

What hitch do you have? It looks like it has tons of clearance. Mine is not shackle friendly.
