Nice work on those brackets!
It looks like you just repurpose the front of the rear leaf spring hangers to the rear of the rear?

Did the front bracket fit in the factory holes of the frame in the rear?
Let me know if the parking brake bracket gives you any trouble on the drivers side.
I am watching this mod. as I would like to lift the back of Poncho at least two inches and don't really love the idea of going from a OEM 3 inch block under there now, to the bigger OEM 6 inch block.

yes it it will the 92/93 pcm needs to see that the motor is running. But could also be the relay on the inner fender.

Depends...some 90ís were the old analog switches and gauges,but others were like the later 91.5-93 electronic gauges.

thanks for the information on the wireing I had a brain lapse and didnít have the computer plugged in. that helped make allot of things work. itís getting closer to be on the road Iím getting down to drive shafts. bumpers. intercooler. finish brakes. Things like that. I nead to find a fuel filter water separater without the sincer in the bottom every one Iíve had leaked I just want one with a screw on the bottom. Still have to get a good handle from oliver for the driver door need one for my other truck to. Nothing but time and money just havenít had either lately
