New member with a 2009 JK Wrangler

My name is Wes Ewing, I just bought a 2009 JK Wrangler. I have already put an after-marker rear bumper on it and I am getting ready to put a 2.5" rough country spring and shock lift on it with new rims and tires. I love my new Jeep. Is it that hard to do the lift change without having a lift? Are there any problems that yall may have run into that I can avoid?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to WF! It may be pretty difficult, do you have a buddy that can let you borrow one? Where are you from? There may be some WF members close by willing to help ya out.

Having one put on for me. No lift available, think it would make it much easier.

I got a great price on a Rough Country lift installed. Asked about it here and had very bad responses. Decided to go with Teraflex. A little more money, but didn't want to regret the lift after it was installed.
