Even though we fought two bolts for a total of about 3 hrs and with a few trips to homedepot and advance auto for stuff, including a return trip to grab the install booklet I left at the counter at Home Depot, an hour of hard rain and three hours no power, we were able to get it done in 14 hours. I know that's WAAAAAY more than others have taken, but those bolts whooped us something aweful. The only problem we ran into besides the bolts were a few missing nuts and stuff. I still only have 2 bolts holding by front bumper brackets on...

Thanks for the info. Normally do everything in craft shop. Can't beat it, use their lifts, tools, and now they keep certified mechanic around there as well (just in case).

Come on Redneck....he searched, he found this thread, he asked his question in it rather than starting another body lift thread......
People always tell others to "search"....



It takes about 10hrs.
Removing the rusty old stuck bolts is the hardest part..

There are alot of threads out there, find one called "body lift rub"....started by 86indy, lots of good info in that thread
