The delivery guy called and said the lift was waiting for me. I wanna thank Jon from STP for getting the lift in the mail ASAP!! Its a 6 inch Zone offroad for my 2008 2500HD 2 wheeler... Yes i know why lift it a 2 wheel drive?... Anyways, I will be doing the lift myself along with my brother. Can anyone give any tips? This will be my first suspension lift, done a couple body lifts in the past. Ill post pics when i get a chance.

Thanks
Dustin

Dustin,
Thanks for the business! :shake:

Being a 2wd 2500HD, it will be pretty easy and straight forward. Make sure you have good jack stands if your doing it in your driveway. Use a torque wrench for proper tightening, and get a alignment afterwards.

You have my number, so call me if you have any questions...

Looking forward to seeing the pics!

Read the instructions several times if you haven't already. I know my lift sat in the garage for about a month before I installed it. Take the time to know what is coming in the next step and there won't be any suprises.

Take your time and good luck.

I didn't use a breaker bar on my Sierra, but I did on my Titan, it is cheating, but it helped with speed and knuckles..lol.

Good Luck, Bro..... We need pics..

Don't curse or throw tools and keep yourself hydrated with lots of cold beer, and watch for pinched fingers.
