Like any other kit, all of the factory components that are in the way or are going to be replaced need to be removed from the vehicle prior to installing the new kit. With this kit, the first step to installing the new front lift is to tape the provided templates on the front and back of the driver-side rear crossmember and follow the instructions to trim the crossmember mount with a reciprocating saw. This must be done so the differential can be lowered from the vehicle. A hole is also drilled through the crossmember to mount the new rear crossmember.
