    Removing the bolts is often the hardest part of the job. Mine went smooth- about 2 hrs. You probably have some rusty bolts thoguh, so be prepared to deal with them. Do one side at a time and you'll be fine.

    I've only got a 1" body lift so I can't say for sure but I think both of them will be fine. Good luck and show us some pics when you are done!
