I've installed a body lift before and i'm in northern VA. The simple instructions worked out perfectly for me. I finished it in approximately 3 hours. Save youself some money and do it yourself. You only need a jack, socket set and torque wench to do it.
Depending upon if you have a motor mount lift and/or transfer case drop, you may need to remove the bolts on the fan shroud, remove your transfer case linkage and remove the bolts around your gas filler tube. (So that none of these break when you are lifting the body off the frame.) Loosen all 11 body mount bolts; remove the 4 rear body mount bolts, and then the one front one in the center. Do one side at a time. Remove the 3 center body mount bolts on one side. Using a block of wood to distribute the load, jack up one side until it's high enough to insert the spacers. Loosely install bolts after lowering the jack, then repeat on the other side. Torque bolts to proper setting.

You may get more answers/help from more people if you post in the TJ specific section.
