Chevy/GMC Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon XL 2 & 4WD Body Lift Kit Installation Instructions

September 5th, 2009 · No Comments

Installation of a body lift will change the center of gravity and the handling characteristics of the vehicle. Because of the higher center of gravity and larger tires, the vehicle will handle and react differently both on and off-road. You must drive it safely! Extreme care must be taken to prevent vehicle roll-over or loss of control, which could result in serious injury or death. Avoid sudden sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers and always make sure all vehicle occupants have their seat belts fastened.

This kit should only be installed on a vehicle that is in good working condition. Before you install the kit, thor- oughly inspect the vehicle for corrosion or deformation of the sheet metal around the factory body mounts.

2000-2003 JackRabbit Series Ford Super Crew Installation Instructions

June 29th, 2009 · No Comments

The JackRabbit is designed to carry rainwater from the cover into the canister and then out through the drains. Most truck models have standard OE drain holes or plastic/rubber access ports in the front of the truck bed. Check to make sure your truck has the OE drain holes so that drilling into the sheet metal is not required. If drilling is necessary, be sure to check the underside of the truck bed for the best location. The holes should be located near the side and as far forward as possible. Use a drill bit suitable for sheet metal (such as a taper drill or step drill). Drill drain tube clearance holes at 3/4” (19mm). This will need to be done before installing the cover.
