I have searched the ends of the world....

I have searched probably evey single thread on here regarding a T-Bar crank. For the life of me, I cannot figure out which bolt to crank. Its probably staring right at me. if someone could PLEASE post a picture of the bolt...you will be my hero for life. If I locate this bolt the crankage should be happening on Wednesday, my next day off from work. I have even found the thread with the link to The Ranger Station with the drawing and the instructions...but that didnt seem to help. I have put the time in searching with no luck. I am using a lifeline and hopefully you guys can help. Thanks bros!!!

this would be a damaged driver's side t-bar cover plate.....



but...see the bolt hanging down? That's the one you want. There's an opening in the t-bar cover plate. The bolt is in the middle of that opening.

since this question comes up so often i just went out and took a couple pics that i hope will give you a good idea of where its at

see the box with the bar coming out the side of it, its hangs down and is visible from the side of the truck

a closer view:

a lower view:

mine is packed with dirt and needs to be cleaned out but you can see the bolt head in the middle of the hole:

Gear head, that was perfect!! I know exactly where it is.

So, one final question...to raise the truck from stock height, you would crank the bolt clockwise or counter-clockwise???

tighter = stiffer. stiffer --> more lift.

If at all possible (to make it easier on yourself) jack the front tires off the ground so most of the strain is off the front suspension. Of course block the tires, e-brake, put in park, whatever you got to do to keep it from moving and make sure it's safe to get under there before you do. It's a 15mm bolt if I remember correctly, and a breaker bar would help with leverege when tightening.
