    It's nice how everyone who offered to help me with my lift kit when I got it have disappeared without a trace or any way to get ahold of them when I'm ready to do the lift... I'd love to do it myself, but I tried taking the bolts off the leaf springs and the darn things wouldn't budge... I'm gonna need a stronger person (two of the three people I'm trying to find) or the air powered tools that the other person has... and definately the garage which all three have, since it gets unbearably cold and windy every single time I try to do something to my truck in my driveway... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    If anyone sees the following people, force them to call me so I at least tell me they're alive, whether they are still willing to help me out or not:
    Bob, Jay, Tim... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Laws of physics/statics/mechanics, my friend. 100 pounds on a 1 foot wrench equals 100 ft-lbs. 100 pounds on the end of a 4 foot wrench equals 400 ft-lbs. Go get yourself a 4-5ft pipe that fits over the end of your ratchet/wrench/breaker bar. Now you have a cheater bar.

    Gotta say that the one good thing about being in a club was all the help I got from one of the members whenever I needed it. Here's a hint for you and any others out there new to the sport. Any time anyone askes for help on thier truck, go help them out. Even if all you think you can do is get rags for them, go help. Not only will you learn a lot but you will also have them in what I call "Truck Help Debt". Get it? /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I found Tim... but his parents freaked out when he asked if we could use the garage... something about it being built in 1956 and a lifted truck wouldn't fit through the door... and Explorer would have to be lifted about 4 inches at least to not fit through their garage door /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif but whatever...

    I talked to my sister's fiance... I'll have to wait 3 more weeks, but he'll help me out if I go to Sterling, Colorado... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif ROAD TRIP!!! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
