Plenty sturdy for that - You will be fine.

Just don't try to 'bumper tow' anything - which is a horrible idea even when stock. lol

When people mention they had different experiences, you need to check their vehicle. My 2002 would be slightly different than a 98 and a 2006 with same motors or different.

Its a body lift....you dont have to do anything with the engine...just adjust a few wire harnesses and battery cables.

I had to touch no actual electrical wires, just grounding extensions to the frame if i recall correctly.

Is it essential to disconnect the parking brake before lifting the driver's side of the cab? Also the steering shaft, is right at the top where it gets disconnected and where the extension goes (I have the bolt out, I need to pull it off still which might be a pain)?

---------

I'm having trouble disconnected the parking brake cable.

I never disconnected the parking brake...

As for the steering extension..i added that to the shaft area under the hood.
Make sure u do it right and dont rotate it..it has to stay in the same position or the airbag will go off.

The steering shaft extension goes at the top of the shaft? I couldn't get it apart and with the body jacked up a bit the steering shaft is pulling apart in the middle, figure I should stop...

That's where it looks like it goes, things is I'm having trouble getting it off. Might be seized up or something.

I got the bolt out on the weekend. It was hard but it's out now. The upper shaft seems to be seized on the lower shaft itself.

----------

Did the shaft pull right off after you took the bolt out?
