Hello, I am making my own lift kit for XT6 in 3dr conversion. My question is on the front bolts holding the cross member in place, do the kits you by come with new bolts the full length or do they attach differently, would anyone have any pics?

The project kind of hit a lul this summer with projects around the house but with winter coming I'll be working back out in the garage again. Thanks everyone.

There is a bracket with 2 bolts pressed in to them. The bracket sits up top above your X-member and the bolts run down to the X-member where nuts hold them on. This holds your X-mebmer to your body. The kit comes with longer bolts. The old bolts need to be removed and the new bolts slipped through old brackets.

This info is assuming that your XT6 main x-member bolts on the same as my EA82 :)

you could have you lift bolt to the body, using existing bolts, and then have the suspension bolt to the lift. i did min e that way, but a thru bolt application would probably be more sturdy.
