The leveling kit wont be hard to do at all, all you got to do is undo the u-bolts which could be a pain to get loose if they are rusty then be sure to put c clamps on the leaf packs and tighten them down before cutting the old centering pin. Then after cutting the centering pin undo the clamps and put in the add aleafts then clamp them up again and install the new centering pin and putting the u bolts back on

Thanks get a re alignment. Its much easier than doing a full lift thats for sure

Me and a buddy did it to his king ranch. Wasnt to bad just had to have a dang come-a-long to get everything to line up again. My rough country came with all new spring packs and it took a come-a-long to get everything under it to. Wasnt real bad tho

No its not too bad, just adding leafs is real easy, its when you have to install bigger crossmember brackets on a TTB with a lift that is a real pain, Ive had to do it twice
