Although the lift i dont know if we could do in one day i guess we could but i dont know so that we would still probably do over a weekend connor
im totally for that, because that would also give me an oppurtunity to learn more about jeeps, and get some experience under the hood. and how long do you think it would take to put the lift in?

well me and my friend did his 6.5" with 2" blocks, SYE kit and tom woods driveshaft in like 36 hours aprox. but we had to make a couple runs to the parts store after breaking the pitarm puller and some other tools so i think we could do yours in around 15 hours if it was just me and you and if we had 3 people and all went smoothly i would say around 10 hours the other reason it took so long on his was we had to modify his CA's because of how much lift he had so he bought a CA drop kit which took some time to put on but yea i think we could do yours in under 15 also it depends on what kinda tools we have available if were doing it all with cresent wrenches it would take forever you know but if you used all air guns it would be a breaze


Also when we did his we used his dads shop so we had access to every tool imaginable and we had a full vehicle lift but like i said we also had a lot of other things on his that took way longer than just putting a lift on

well as long as you have a torque wrench a good breaker bar and every size socket needed with matching open end wrenches of the same size were good to go and if need be i can bring a jack or two with some jack stands

lol yea i think this wrenching party is a good idea lol uhm we should do it at whoevers house has the most space tools arnt totally needed because we can all bring most of ours well like the ones for our project and we can ask someone else to bring one of theirs if we dont have it

So normally the idea is to all buy something for instance connor buying a lift lets say me buying a sye kit and 92 buying an aussie then we would all meet at someones house and knock out all three projects I know if we get a descent group of guys together these would be a lot of fun and super easy to know out these projects also i think we should pick someones house that has a good welder that way we can do minor welding if needed

i got mine off eBay, you can always find a deal there. i did the front and back at the same time ,so i didn't have to choose which one. i think the front would give you better street manners, The front is harder because you have to mess with more stuff to get at it. as for wheeling I'm not sure but i think your jeep would preform better if you did the back. get both!
