I put the Rough Country 1 3/4" spacer lift on mine, the first time I ever installed a lift.
Bought 3 ton floor jack and stands at Home Depot. Sockets and wrenches ranging from 10mm to 18mm. A few hours in the driveway and it was complete. Read over the instructions HERE to get an idea of what is entailed. If I can do it, anyone can!

I say - Do it yourself. I just installed mine last Friday, took me about 5 hours, but I had fun doing it, and appreciate it that much more once it's finished. You can say " Yep, I did it".

Save the money you would pay the shop to buy more goodies for the Jeep.

X2, with the money I saved, I paid my annual insurance premium with Geico.

Revtek or Teraflex????????

Running 33s on 09 JK, anything good or bad to say about Teraflex 2.5" budget boost or the Revtek 3" suspension system???? leaning toward revtek for no other reason than the extra half inch.
