hey texan thanks for the pics they helped alot. I chopped mine last night and it looks good, I will post pics in a few days. I was wondering if you did the washer resivore relocation and if so can you show me where you moved it maybe with some directions? I was also wondering if I installed the same lift could I fit 32x11.5 on my 4x4?

thanks
Josh

No. I did not relocate the reservoir. You can see it in the second pic I posted above. I did spray it with rattle-can bed liner to give it a little more protection and to make that white plastic not stand out so much.

I am running 32x11.50's on mine now. So sure. You could easily fit them. I have a Daystar lift, plus a 3/8" top spacer plate, plus 3 Ring Clevis up front. Wheels are 15x7 with 4" BS. My fender to center of wheel measurement right now is 22-1/8" right now with no rubbing.

Bottle from o'reilly auto parts: $10
Vacuum plug assortment for some of the unused outlets on new bottle: $3?
a little bit of wire (2x 3 foot long)
3 feet of 1/4 corrugated conduit. Get some like all of your other engine wires are in.
Adhesive (when heated) butt connectors for the wiring extension

1996xj from LOST did mine but I kind of watched...reused most everything, extended the wires, shortened the hoses to fit nicely. TBJ made the windshield drawing on the cap...

Great pics, does anyone have one of a Limited bumper cut? What did you guys use to cut the bumpers? Is there any space showing between the fenderliner and bumper edge after cutting?

I used a 4" grinder with a cut off wheel, and yes there is a gap.

I have never done anything like this before and it only took me about an hour

good luck
