Thanks, do you have a hitch? And If you are talking about an electric fan it is a fan by the radiator to cool the radiator.

Yes the lift brackets will work with that hitch its the same I have. Leave all the bolts on the bumper and brackets Loose then tighten everything down. It does work fine.

----------

This should be the bracket in the kit for the rear. One of 2 ways either flare out the hitch with a big fucking hammer or flare the bumper brackets. It's a very simple process. My recommendation is bolt up the hitch with the single horizontal bolt. Then leave the bumper bolts all loose and start fitting in the bumper brackets.

I think that is what he was talking about. I don't get why that is the only thing holding me back from raising my radiator rather than lowering.

If someone can elaborate please do.

If you have the air bag module under the cup holder you can just unplug it an it kills the air bags.

Did you have to extend your brake lines? Was your drive shaft extension a solid piece of aluminum or was the wider end machined out inside?
