Install my lift? (Colorado)

Hey guys,

Im new to CO. Only lived out here for about 6 months. I bought my first XJ about 2 months ago. It was stolen about 3 weeks ago and i finally will be getting it back this week. I want to put the Rubicon Express 3.5" or 4.5" lift on it but I don't have any tools (Stolen outa my jeep), Dont have a garage, and dont have entire knowledge of it. I have installed lowering kits on other vehicles and its cant be too much different but i just dont want to go at installing a lift without knowledge of the Jeep XJ.

I guess my solution is to have a place like 4 wheel parts install the lift but its out right ridiculous what they are charging. Secondly I would like to put the 4.5" lift on with full rear leafs not A.A.L. but the kit shocks and install would run near 2k and thats just a little too much.

Anyone have any ideas? Any1 know a shop that might be more reasonable?

My budget for right now is about 1200.00.


p.s. anyone have the tools and knowledge and wanna help?

What city are you in?

Jeeps are built, not bought.

If I was still out there, I would help you but I probably won't move back till the summer. Most guys don't mind helping if you bring beer.
