The rear of my 87 wag wouldn't be that hard, but the front looks kind of hard. The front bumper has a lip that bolts under the frame. It looks like to me it would be in the way if you lifted it 3 in. I might be wrong.
did your trailmaster kit come with anything to lenghten the t case and shifting linkage?
When installing the 3" BL, both bumpers HAVE to come off. Not sure what lip you're talking about... the lip of the body under the bumper? That's why it has to come off before the install. My front brackets bolt straight to the front of the frame... 2 bolts directly in front and the 2 on each of the sides. I used diamond plate to raise the brackets 3"... 4 pieces and 6 grade 8 bolts for the front. The back rubs the body after the install, too.
Yes.. the Trailmaster 3" kit came with 3" extension rods for the shift linkage and my QT lo range lever and 2 extra blocks (lucky ... I lost one on a trail).
By the way... thanks for the link, rm
