Installed my 4x4 labs rear bumper Saturday. Nice and easy install, well if you forget the part about the tow hook, bolt, 1/2" extension and impact wrench hitting you in the mouth while pulling off the hitch. :hillbilly:. Nice unit and impressive gain in ground clearance! Now just have to figure out how/what to wire to it for backup lights and license plate lighting.

Yes, removed by rack before the garage door header did it for me. Got a couple inches to spare now. Also use the antenna as a measuring stick, it is an inch or two higher than the roof, if it hits, I don't go!

Phil, do you need bump stops on one side or both? I would think you would lose a little articulation with the bump stop(s), did you notice anything? Finally, how did it drive?

Phil, does the Delta bracket bolt in easily? Wondering how much time to allot for that addition. Anything you would do or change?

I do like the custom plate.

From my measurement/testing bumpstop/s are not needed but the clearance will be very close if you dont run something. In many lifts the shock is the bumpstop.:eek:

I run 1.75 bumpstop on the rear and I think my set up articulates just fine.

Having your rear end not moving side to side when you hit a bump is a win. Any lifted 80 series will benefit from this bracket in terms of driveability.

You can save a few dollars by avoiding shipping and pick up or just click the link

I'd really like to install my lift this weekend. But the only place I can do it is work, anyone down to help possibly? We would be in a warehouse with swamp coolers.

You will want 2 jack stands with min. capability of 24". Without jack stands, floor jack, and air tools this is a lot of work. You also will need a #200 torque wrench.
I have a floor jack, but the jack stands might not be tall enough. We could figure a way to use the forklift to lift the rig.
