STOP! CAREFULLY READ THE IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND WARNINGS BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE INSTALLATION!
Appropriate disassembly, assembly methods and procedures are essential to ensure the personal safety of the individual performing the kit installation. Improper installation due to the failure to correctly follow these instructions could cause personal injury or death. Read each step of the installation manual carefully before starting the installation.
Always wear safety glasses for eye protection.
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Always apply the parking brake when working on the vehicle.
Block the front and rear tire surfaces to prevent unexpected vehicle movement.
Operate the engine only in well-ventilated areas to avoid exposure to carbon monoxide.
Do not smoke or use flammable items near or around the fuel system.
Use chemicals and cleaners only in well-ventilated areas.
Batteries can produce explosive hydrogen gas, which can cause personal injury. Do not
allow flames, sparks or flammable sources to come near the battery.
Keep hands and any other objects away from the radiator fan blades.
Keep yourself and your clothing away from moving parts when the engine is running.
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that can be caught in rotating or moving parts.
WARNING: SLP Recommends allowing the vehicle to cool (not running) for five hours before beginning installation.
WARNING: To avoid the chance of electrical shock or damage to your vehicle’s electrical system, disconnect both the negative and positive batter leads (in that order) at the battery.
