    Hello All,

    I ordered the ORD 1" Body Lift and the Body Bushings. Can someone who's been there give me some clues as to what's ahead. How difficult is this going to be? Will I have to do anything special with the Fuel Filler Tube, or the Shifter, or anything?

    Thanks Mucho

    I don't think you are going to have to do any modifications after. All the hoses, steering column, fan shroud and other stuff should be ok. Ask Boss about them. He has em on his blazer.

    No extra mods to anything has to be done with only a 1" body lift. Changing the body mounts and putting the 1" lift on is easier than it sounds. Make sure you do one side at a time (like do driver side from front to back, and then do passenger side). Like Chevy4x4 said, I did this on my truck and you can check out my site to get more info.
