    My bumpers were never lifted correctly after the body lift. Anyone know who makes a kit to re-fit the bumpers in a higher location? I know it's out there, just can not seem to find it. Thanks in advance.

    honestly, it's still in the box! I have been trying to track down a used door for about 2 weeks now. Finally got it, got a new hood from goodmark this AM, bodywork can now bw completed, then we'll spray it, the put the soft top on. I was suprised how small the box was for it!

    I'll keeo you posted.

    Any more ideas from any one on the bumper lifts?

    Sounds like something that can be cobbled up with a bit of handy angle, hacksaw, 6 beers and a mate.

    Who's going to see the bracket?

    My ghetto fab job included 2 by 3 tubing that I welded to the frame and then I welded or you could drill and bolt the brackets back on, that was my simple fix.
