Looking for some help putting on lift!!

Just got my new lift and was looking for some help installing it. I am pretty good with this type of stuff but brand new to JEEPS. I live near Atlantic City, but willing to travel close by or have a few people over that have a good set of tools. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in the same boat except up in North Jersey. I live in a condo development without any tools other than a basic wrench set, god I can't wait to get a house. I'm looking at the RC 3.25 inch lift.

you don't really need that many tools... I mean just a set of sockets, and adjustable wrenches, torx, pb blaster... and probably a good drill for when you snap your rear bolts on the shocks bc its gna happen lol

let me know if you need help when you do it
Matt

What lift did you get and how much did it cost ya? Where did you get it from? Been interested in putting a lift in my GC.



I used to live up in N. Jersey but I am down in MD now.
