Well guys I am chalking last night up as a success, at least for my ability anyway.
I got the jeep up on jack stand and wheels removed
both shock bolts removed
dropped the axle to take out the center nut that goes to A arm, but could not find a socket to match the bolt I sought out some help from a facebook group and had a guy give me some valuable insight that I didn't need to take that bolt out. I was just following along with a you tube video of the same lift on a liberty.
I got the air box and such removed and out of the way, and have all of the strut bolts accessible on the passenger side
removed the battery, battery box, and fuse panel.
After checking the facebook post I gave the drivers side rear a go and got it all installed. I put the shock back on and took a pic to put on the facebook post and realized I forgot to put the boot on.
I called it a night after that and will be back on it tomorrow. Hoping to pick up the Rubicon rims and tires tonight if the guy is available.
Thanks for all of the insight. Here are a few photos of the "Project Libercon"
air filter box removed
battery, fuse panel, and box removed
Here was that bolt that was giving me issues. Just have to put the nut back on and go from there.
Here is the passenger side complete minus the shock boot.
Here is me having a local Pennsyvania brew with my Lab
My buddy is a certified mechanic and is helping with the rest tonight. I really want to do all of the work by myself and have him guide me. I have a case of Straub in the beer fridge ready to go. If I get the tires today the lift and tire project should be done this weekend, minus the alignment.
I put penetrating oil on all of the bolts and such, put the rear axle on jack stands, and removed the jacks.
Plans for tonight are:
putting shock boot on drivers side
installing rear lift on passenger side
Install front lift on both sides
Folding pinch weld for tire clearance
"IF I get tires today" putting the tires on.
I stole this off line but this is what she should look like when It is done.
