    What are the major hassle's of installing a body lift? I purchased a 2" lift for my 78 blazer and need to know what I will have to modify on the truck. Thanks, Pete.

    Hassle #1. Bumpers; the bumpers will remain in the stock location unless they are relocated...mostly cosmetic.
    Hassle #2. Getting people to help...Always have plenty of beer on hand
    Hassle #3. extending the shift linkage...on my 85 I had to weld in a piece of metal (supplied with the kit) for the transmission, the tcase link also has to be extended and therer is a piece for that too.
    Hassle #4 The bolts are going to be rusted.
    Other than that its easy

    Hassle # 5: Fan shroud may possibly hit fan after body lift.
    Can cut shroud to fit, or remove it.
