It is installed and was extremely easy. You dont even have to take off the tires. I have over 14" of clearance now and it lifted almost 2" exactly in the front and back. i will get the exact numbers and update this week. I love the look of it but it does ride alot stiffer. I also noticed that it has pulled the back axles slightly out of the housing. I know this is expected after adding a lift kit but it make me nervous. I could even see a little oil/grease on of them near the seal area. I may end up pulling it off. If I do it will be for sale on here.

Looks great! After seeing your set up I'm sold on the camo, I especially like the fender flares. It adds a nice touch!

Here are the before and after measurements. I jumped on the front and back to make sure the shocks has settled before re-measuring. Not bad for only having 26" tires (although they measure 27").

Front - 12-7/8" -> 15"
Back - 12-1/4" -> 14-1/2"

Thanks, have you seen any grease coming out since you've put it on?
I only rode it once since I put it on and thats when I noticed it. I will keep an eye on it.

I would double check to make sure the axles are pushed in all the way, there is only a c clip holding the where they need to be. I've seen it on four wheelers and if not fully seated you will shred the axle splines in the case!

I'm guessing the c-clip on the axle has come out of its groove in the differential. Easy thing to do would be to try and either give the cv joint a good solid push by hand or tap on it with a wooden drift and hammer. Another hammer handle works great for the wooden drift. The reason I say the wooden drift is because it's softer the cv housing and will fail first.

Does yours have a gap like that also? I see you have a 2" lift also.
