    Just a suggestion for the directions on 1\" body lift

    It would be a big help if you put the following on the directions for the install for the ORD body lift.

    -Number the bolts so you know which bolt goes to what point.
    -You have to trim the fan shroud
    -And cut or bend the tailgate springs

    Thanks for the great product /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Good point on the fan shroud, it was disconcerting to me when I first tried to start my rig and the fan was hitting it. LOL. As far as the bolts go... it would add some clarity giving them numbers... but I just compared the stock ones to the new 1" longer ones and it seems to work out pretty easily. wrt the tail gate, I think that depends on the rig... I never had to mess with mine at all.

    If the instruction sheet is going to be added-to however... it would be a good idea to recommend dicsonnecting the trany/tcase linkage and the steering shaft before starting the install....

    My tailgate springs were left attached - tailgate can be lifted with a pinky. It did make it a little more difficult to install the rear stacks.

    There's no question our instructions for a lot of our kits are minimal at best. I'd like to have better instructions and we are working toward that but have a ways to go. I'll keep your recommendations in mind, thanks.

    If you want to take pics for the new instruction, you could come install the one inch body lift on my 76 Blazer. It 100% stock so it'd be a good for pictures.
