Help installing PSC brawler rockers?

Hey guys I need a answer I have a set of PSC brawler rockers. And like everything I have on my jeep I have installed myself. I was told the rockers are not easy and a professional should do it. So my question is how hard is it to install them and how long will it take me working alone? Here is what I have done to my jeep I kinda know my way around when it comes to working on my jeep I have a 4" rough country X series lift, Viair OBA system, rigid lights, have cut fenders before but not on this jeep YET. I know wiring and dont have to worry about it with the rockers. O ya I have a front 1310 adams drive shaft everything I have installed myself so how hard will the rockers be???

Hardest part IMO will be dealing with the nutcerts. All the other stuff is simple bolt on stuff. The rockers are too, but if you're not the type of guy who likes to check 3x before drilling, Id pass. That being said I dont think they're a big deal, just be sure to take your time and do yourself a favor and buy a nutcert tool. Too much aggravation if you bugger up a nutcert to replace a second time.

Take your time and plan on a whole day to be safe.

That is my only issue is the nutcert's I have never messed with them before and I dont mind measuring more than once I use to be a carpenter. 4WP said they would charge me 275 for installing them is it worth the 275 for them doing it?

It would almost be worth 275 or so if you are willing to pay it. It is a pain in the butt to do. If you do decide to do it yourself be sure to to have some help.

ok Sounds like I will have 4WP do it then I have already paid for them to do it just didnt know if I wanted to get a store refund and do it myself. I love working on my jeep and its a good day if I work on it and only threaten to sell it 5 or 6 times. if you guys say its a PITA then I would rather someone else have the fun.

I honestly don't see what the issue is. I installed mine by myself (2 door) in about 3-4 hours. Hardest part was either the weight(!) or the fact that my painter painted the inside of the holes that attatch to frame (bed liner). Didn't notice untill almost done, had to pull down and auger the holes out a bit. Everything lines up nice. Nut certs are not that big of deal really...just use a snug pressure. Too hard and they pull/strip out, too soft and they spin. Any doubt, go soft and check, tighten as needed. I have used nut certs in avaition many times, so maybe this helps.
If u can do a lift, this is nothing...really.
Good luck,
Troy
