Re 4.5 sf help!!!

I'm planning on on lifting my jeep this winter. Iv added things on to my cars in the past but iv never lifted a vehicle or done anything major. I have just basic tools but i am pretty tech savy and want to start doing my own work. i was wondering if anybody has installed this lift alone or if i should attempt it instead of having someone else install it.

I've installed this lift kit. It's all bolt on stuff and pretty straightforward. It will take some time though, especially if it's your first time working with suspension. It also depends on the tools you have. There are some good write-ups online. I would install the suspension yourself. Great way to get more familiar with your Jeep and save some cash!

The link BYuen gave you covers it well.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

This fellow JF member's writeup will help you a lot to set up your pinion angles. He basically did an axle swap and suspension at the same time.
