    Anybody ever installed a 3" body lift on a 2wd '77. I have all of the parts but no directions. Any suggestions?

    There should be no major differences between 2 or 4wd....there are a lot of post in the 4wd section concerning body lifts. You pretty much have to loosen the bolts that hold the body on.....jack up the body, usually one end at a time, insert the lift pucks, install longer bolts. Your fan will probly hit the bottom of the shroud. If it's an automatic the shift linkage, outside the firewall, will have to be legthened. Watch the emergency brake cables etc. That's about all I know of. Check the 4wd area for more tips.
