OME Install
My OME lift should be here Thursday and I'm planning to install it over the weekend. Anybody have any tips for the install?

Ok good haha. I thought it'd be pretty easy. How long does it take?

Make sure you got properly seated jack stands and make sure you don't do it alone just in case the jeep comes down on ya!!! If you are doing the lift alone make sure someone is checking in on ya, and have fun with it. There's only one way to take things off and put them back on. Also get a manual.

Only use a impact wrench on bolts you can't break loose with your Armstrong or else you might break off bolt heads. People always break off the rear shock bolts, if that happens then drill them out by drilling clockwise about half the length of the bolt and then back counterclockwise and should loosen it.

Be sure not to rock the jeep off the stands while trying to break bolts loose with a breaker bar.

I'm going to be doing it at the local DIY Garage on a lift. Wayyyyyyy too cold to do this in my not heated garage.

Re: OME Install
You do not need any manual. All installation instructions are packed with lift. That information is sufficient.
