Installation of this body lift kit without proper knowledge of the factory recommended procedures might affect the performance of these components and the safety of your vehicle. It is strongly recommended that a certified mechanic who is familiar with the installation of similar components install this body lift kit. 2. Park the vehicle on a clean, dry, flat, level surface. Block the tires so the vehicle cannot roll in either direction. 3. Disconnect both battery cables. Be sure to disconnect the negative cable first, then the positive cable. 4. Before you begin lifting the vehicle, you need to measure and record the bumper to vehicle gaps and also the distance between the cab and the bed. These dimensions will allow you to retain the factory spacing at these locations. WARNING This body lift kit should only be installed on vehicles that are in good working condition. Before the installation begins, the vehicle should be thoroughly inspected for evidence of corrosion or deformation of the sheet metal around the factory body mounts. This body lift kit should not be installed on any vehicle that is suspected to have been in a collision, or misused. Off road use of your vehicle with this body lift installed may increase the stress applied to the factory body mounts. It is not recommended that any vehicle, with a body lift installed, be involved in any extreme off road maneuvers. Failure to follow this warning may result in serious personal injury and/or serious damage to your vehicle. 5. Remove the center shifter console, shift boot, and plate. Remove the doorsill plates and the kick panels. Carefully lift the carpet to expose the cab-mounting bolts. Loosen but do not remove all cab mounting bolts. 6. Carefully mark the splines on the steering shaft in the engine compartment at the steering box and steering column so that the shaft can be reinstalled in the original orientation. Remove the shaft from the vehicle. 7. Release the parking-brake- cable clip from the firewall. 8. Remove the parking brake cable from the frame clip 1 next to the battery. 9. Release the clutch line from the clip on the lower portion of the firewall. Loosen the clutch line from the clip on the firewall located behind the carburetor. Reroute the clutch line underneath the heater hose closest to the passenger side of the vehicle. 10. If the vehicle is equipped with power steering, loosen the clamp just behind the grill that holds the serpentine cooling line and push the line toward the firewall. Loosen both brackets that hold the cooler. Adjust the hoses that are attached to get more hose clearance. 11. Relocate the engine ground strap from the firewall to the lower throttle cable bolt on the firewall. 12. Automatic transmission only. Remove the transmission linkage between the steering column and the transmission. Disconnect the transfer case shifter from the “C” shaped linkage. 13. Remove the oxygen sensor wire from the clip underneath the cab and make sure there is enough slack to allow for the lift 14. Remove the front bumper and lower valance. 15. Remove the two bolts that mount the fan shroud to the radiator. Pull the fan shroud up out of the clips on the bottom of the radiator. Lay the fan shroud over the fan away from the radiator. WARNING Use extreme caution when working with the engine cooling system. Never remove the radiator cap from a hot radiator. Wait until the engine and radiator has cooled and the pressure in the system has dissipated. Use care not to spill any antifreeze/coolant while draining system. Immediately clean up any spilled fluids. Antifreeze can be harmful to the environment. Take care to store the drained antifreeze/coolant in a place away from children and animals. Antifreeze/coolant can be fatal if swallowed.
