Wow... you got some serious hight on there... is that strictly the parts that came with the lift? or did you add some spacers to the rear and a clevis lift?

Are those 235s? That really looks good... My lift has arrived but I can't pick it up till Mondayish... Time to start looking for an installer...

No extras on this install. What you see is what you'll get. I couldn't be happier. Been driven' it around today and got to say that this has been money well spent. Those are 225/75's but almost the same hgt. as the 235/70's. This is what yours should look like.You're gonna love it! Right Griz! \:D/

Just to review... I my Rusty's kit I got the springs, shock and struts... Just those 6 things... (and stickers)...

Thats all that comes with it? Just to be sure...
That's all.

After doing this kit by myself, I would strongly recommend that anyone doing it themselves; take the struts to an automotive machine shop and have them disassemble and assemble your struts for you. I have a press in my garage and that made the job easy for me. I tried to do it with a pair of spring compressors, it is possible but not very easy.

The rest of the job is not difficult at all. It took me a total of 3 hours to put the lift on. I've been wrenching all my life and have a good assortment of tools.

There is a write up from someone that did a Frankenlift here; pretty much the same: http://jeepkj.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4194

Guys, my lift is finally here (Guam) and I'm gonna pick it up tomorrow. Do I need to go have my struts compressed somewhere, too, if I upgraded to the OME rears?

I might be confusing the two, but I thought I read somewhere that you didn't need to do that if you upgraded.

You need the springs compressed. Struts go up front and shocks are in the rear. I think the only company that does preassembled struts is All Js with the frankenlift.

Ok, I'm gonna look right after I post this, but just in case I can't find it, where is the best "How to" post on this Rusty's lift?
