    How high are you going? I'll probably be able to help.

    I’d really like to keep it less than 2” but the SOR grocery getter lift is a rip-off and man-a-fre doesn’t seem to have their low-lift OME kit anymore (If they’re even still in business). Will probably go light/medium or medium/medium OME.

    Have you looked at Dobinsons? I think they have a 2 inch. I've got Ironman springs and Fox shocks, 2" as well.

    I'll grab more... they're on sale at Auto Zone.

    Will do, extra strong.
    At least we shouldn't have any issues with rust, the truck left the desert for the first time in June.

    Did you do your research on grease types? Moly for the knuckles, lithium bearing grease for the wheel bearings and hub? I usually get 2 moly, 1 bearing grease per side. Also, order a 54mm hub socket, they can be had for less than $20. You might as well get enough gear oil to change out the transfer case and rear diff too. Double your shop rolls (as @JohnVee alluded to). Nitrile gloves aquired? You got 2 hands? If so you can return the bearing packer. Read through the entire axle service thread in the 80 section faq so you get an idea of what's about to happen.

    No rush on the 54mm, I have 2.
    Yes, moly for the knuckles and birds and bearing grease for the bearings. You can even pregrease the bearings to save time. I use sta-lube red or Lucas red and tacky for bearings.

    Mine's a 96, so looks like no, but I thought the main problem would be from a 3fe to the 1fz ... I'm wrong a lot though. I'll try to bring a bit of stainless with me to patch holes and what not.

    @Stumpalama what's your welder situation?

    I don't have the gas to weld stainless.

    I ordered a set of these when I rebuilt mine. You use one as a squeegee for the old moly inside and outside the knuckle and birf, then use another to squeegee your squeegee. It worked well and cut down on paper towels and brake spray.

    Probably not cookies, but the leftover moly would look good on cup cakes!

    I prefer the Valvoline icing to the Betty Crocker. It really fills you up, though.

    I have a 1FZ as well, the problem stems from the routing of the exhaust.

    Alright, more stuff has been acquired.
    I have:
    4 tubes moly fortified grease
    2 tubes red & tacky
    4 cans brake cleaner
    8 rolls shop towels
    Marlin Crawler rebuild kit with new bearings.
    Box of nitrile gloves
    1 gallon of 80W90 gear oil. (I can do t-case & rear axle later)

    Beer is next on the list, but nobody has made any requests.

    In light of the weather I would suggest bringing ground cloths .
