Help with Lift Install

So, I really don't feel like paying a local shop to install a mild lift on my 2014 JK. Looking at something to give me enough room for 35's. Thinking that a 2.5" lift may do the trick.
Anyways, I supply the beer, pop, pizza, etc. for your assistance. I have basic tools and a garage.
PM me if interested. Looking to install within the next few weeks

Well, you're in luck as I haven't done anything yet. I was going to buy a leveling kit from some dude in Columbus, but that fell through.

The game is back on!
I just picked up a TF leveling kit off Craigslist.i think the only tool I don't have for this install is a torque wrench and a second set of hands.
Going to order some new rubber and spacers as I'm using my factory wheels. Don't really think new shocks are needed (at least that's what the TF website states.....

I have a torque wrench, impact wrench, compressor, and anything else you may need. You may want to order new shocks, I'm not sure how the JKs are with lift geometry but I know TJs require new shocks after 2.5"

If I wasn't mistaking, this sounds like an invite to head over to your place.....

Hey man sorry I haven't gotten back to you, life's been a little crazy lately. Sunday is my next day off so if you're free I can come by with all the equipment and we can knock it all out. PM me and I'll give you my number
