December 21, 2014 – Lift install day one.
With the help of a few friends, I managed to get the front started.
The Rock Krawler X-Factor lift includes both upper and lower control arms for the front and rear. The lowers contain a bend to provide a little more ground clearance. These things are heavy.
After about 8 hours, we got the front complete, plus the exhaust spacers from Tereflex I also picked up. Removing the exhaust bolts was a bear, but that was after we had to remove my engine skid to get to everything.
You can see the difference in the rear versus the front. This was after removing the front budget boost spacers and JKU springs. The rear still has a 1″ spacer and JKU springs.
