Took me 3 days to install a Poly long arm, by myself, but using a lift and a plasma and getting the suspension and steering all dialed in.

They are either VERY VERY busy or don't know what they are doing.

Wow. WTF? We just did another one this weekend. We knocked it out in 16 hours with the frame clean, everything done and still had time to go trick or treating! That sucks. Let us know if they have any questions....

A couple of things:

- You should mention the name of the shop so others can steer clear.

- Do you remember how many miles were on it when you brought it to the shop? I would check to make sure no one has been freeloading on it.

- What is the Jeep's current state? If it drivable, I would get the hell out of there.

Mud connection in little rock arkansas took 6 months to put a basic 4 inch lift on my buddies ride. You really have to watch these local places.

WTF? Atomic 4x4 in Austin installed this kit on mine in just a couple of days. It was the first one that they had done so even though the RK instructions were great they had a couple of questions. RK's customer support was outstanding and the install went perfect.

So yeah, something's going on here. Maybe they are in over thier head on this one. Good luck!

I don't know shit from shinola, and even I could install the basic 3.5" mid arm flex kit in a few hours. I haven't seen the kit and instructions for the long arm kit, but if those instructions are anything like mine, then there is no excuse for a "professional" shop taking so long. I mean, even an idiot like myself couldn't screw it up with those instructions.....they rock!

So yeah, I'd get it the hell outta there, even if I had to go pick it up with a trailer!

If you're gonna be fucking weird, own it.
