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.

Thanks
Jeepnoma

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

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.
