    If you have an auto, you'll have to extend the tranny linkage. Leave the steering linkage alone. You're going to have to adjust your linkage for an NP 208 or NP 241 if you have one. You need to lose the bottom of your fan shroud. Make sure your brake lines by the master cylinder are long enough and that your gas filler is long enough.

    If I left anything out, hopefully someone will remember. It's been almost a year since I did mine. If you have any specific questions, shoot them my way and I'll help you all I can.

    i would drill out the plastic inserts in the steering shaft and lube it up. otherwise the lift is going to put extra stress on the rag joint.

    Your gonna have to ether take off of the tailgate springs or just cut them off. Also trim the fan shroud.

    Thanks for that tip about the tailgate springs.I had already taken mine off and never put them back on.It would have been in a nine line bind.

    Yeah, dude. Just call Performance Accessories and they should be able to fax you a copy. One other recommendation--If you don't have an impact wrench, a breaker bar is invaluable to get the old body mount bolts off. I did mine in my driveway and had I not used a breaker bar, I would have really spent more time and elbow grease on the install. I did a write-up on mine a while back. Just do a search.

    Extending the tranny linkage is a piece of cake. Just weld that 3" extension to the end of your tranny linkage. More simple than it sounds.

    Do the search for my write-up. I think it's probably better than the actual instructions.

    Hope this helps.
