    doin 3\"body lift right now

    When lengthening the steering shaft, all i need to do is use a torch to bubble out the 2 nylon pins, right? and should the automatic shift rod slide right back into place? mines not wantin to go back into place. and what about the tailgate? what do i need to do to that? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Auto shift rod needs to be lengthened.

    Steering will be fine.

    you have to lengthen the shifter linkage for an auto, mudbogAD and i did a 3" on his jimmy and we left those tail gate things alone but he hasn't opened the gate since so we don't know what they do.

    Don't heat anything. All I did was loosen the 4 bolts under the dash and loosened the two that clamps around the column outside the firewall. It slid perfectly as we lifted it. Remember to tighten everything when your done. Have fun!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
