Lightbulb 2" FRAME LIFT step by step pics

90 F250 4x4 5.8L

can someone post pics of a lift in progress.
step by step....maybe some follow up tips, this is my next project and i dont want to get myself kilt. I went out and bought an Axle/Tranny Jack. This thing is old school monstrosity off an old diesel mechanic. i have a small garage, lumber blocking i use for raising houses 10x10s. couple of truck floor jacks. a 200lb toolbox.
I am going to be replacing the front clip with a newer style, repairing the rusty floorpan, its all ready starting to happen. just doing my research. I find I break less stuff that way.

these were pretty helpful. the most helpful anyway. hope i am not doing anything wrong by posting this youtube link. its a lift for a 2005 F250 4x4 Crew its one of two series.

well opted for a 3 inch body lift, cheaper and the body is off for the swap.

Was down at the custom shop. The guy mentioned something about adding extra leaf springs for the lift because its not a front coil spring. Going to have to look into it. If its that simple then ALL RIGHT! IF I have to do anything with the springs may as well go all around, tested and beefed up, with helpers and overloads.
