Thanks lads. Looks like it's a suck it and see procedure then eh, I don't mind a bit of trial and error, just trying to find out as much as I can so I'm prepared for most hurdles once I start. I'm aiming for 2" inch body and susp lift as they are the most possible without further expensive mods. I didn't think the susp lift effected the steering column at all though wilku? And after considering what you said about not using extended shock brackets with lift springs. Do you think they Would work with extended bump stops to limit the travel? The main thing putting me off spring spacers is using my 15 year old worn out standard springs. Obviously at later date I could change the shocks then for some good quality ones and remove the bump stops if needed.

Well not much progress on the lift and mods as yet. But I've got my hands on some 7j wheels with some tired but usable 225.75.15 AT's on. And apart from slight rubbing on lock they fit ok. But they brought with them a death wobble which is probably down to bad balancing or a slightly mishaped tyre as they were sat deflated on a vehicle for a while. After a few outings on muddy lanes and shallow ford's both before and after I have noticed quite an improvement with grip.
Unfortunately on the way home after a ride around this afternoon the battery light came on, so it looks like the alternator maybe poorly, before I start to tinker are there any common wiring trouble spots or issues that would cause this or is it most likely the actual alternator? I will check charging as soon as I have chance

Not much progress done on modifications lately, but I have been adding some mud to the old girl, the more I play in it the more it impresses me for standard setup. Can't wait to get around to lifting it
