Ac hose? The only hose I had to move was the upper coolant hose. You should have a C bracket to lift it up and out of the way of the fan. There is a bolt right by it to mount the bracket to so it remains out of the way. Double check your instructions to the kit, Should be right there

Could you please repost the links to the actual parts on summit and PA? I just get the homepages on each site. I just wanted to make sure I was getting the right kits, summit's website has always given me problems.

so what happens with my manual t-case selector? does it just not work anymore or will it just be lower to the floor? will i have to fab up some kind of extention?

And if you go with the hurst shifter does that also require the shift extension and does the one from the kit work on that?

I'm halfway through my bodylift and this write up has been great, many of the things that I was worrying about (such as the AC hose rubbing on the pulleys) become quite clear after actually getting into the thick of it.

This may be a retarded question...but the lift mounts...does it include new body mounts? Because it would seem like a good idea to replace the body mounts if you are already torn apart.

no its a lift block it sits on top of the stock bushing washer. it does not come with new rubber/poly bushings. you can order them and replace them when you are in there for sure.

That's what I thought, I am going to replace the body mount bushings at the same time, that way I don't have to touch it for another 14 years
