    Cutting torch or Big air chisel to remove the rivets holding the stock shackle mounts on, floor jack, jack stands, various hand tools, cut-off tool for the front u-bolts ( you can spin the nuts off but a cutting wheel is a lot faster).

    There are pics on my page of the flip kit installed, don't forget a 12 pack of suds.

    I hope the kit comes with raised steering arm and you got some extended brake lines. Impact wrench can make life alot easier. I used grinder on rivets. I also got alot of use out of my sawz-all and hammer. :wink1:

    Combine the BFH and the 12 pack of suds and you will get it done in no time. :wink1:
