Cost for installed 2 inch lift

I am looking to get a 2" lift on my 2000 TJ so I can use 32" tires. One of the local installers told me a 2" lift would run $1300. I am assuming (need to confirm with the installer) that this is for a coil lift and not a spacer lift. This installer is also running a lifetime guarantee on the lift - if I break it, they will fix for free as long as I own my Jeep. If this is actually a coil lift, is this a reasonable price?

Do you own any tools? If so install it yourself with a few buddies and save a ton of money. Its not that hard for a 2" lift. 1300 is insane.

Yea man $1300 seems really pricey for 2 inches, not worth it in my opinion.

Definitely another recommendation for installing it yourself. Coil suspension lifts really aren't difficult, just time consuming. I also have a hard time believing they're covering the parts themselves. And even then, is it just the lift or the other suspension components. If it's just the lift, forget it, you're not likely to break some springs and a few bar components. Rather, even the other suspension parts you're likely to break (and really, unlikely given that 2 inches isn't all that excessive) are easily user replaceable for the most part.

AutoZone and AAP even loan out most of the other parts you'll need.

I thought the price was kind of high but was not sure by how much. I've used these guys for other stuff since they do good work. I know the kits on quadratec run about $800 with shocks, so I know they can be gotten for less elsewhere. Is this a job I can do myself if I get a pair of 6 ton jackstands and a decent floor jack?

Regarding the warranty, i'm not sure what there is to warrant other than the springs, since I doubt they would warrant the new shocks.

Do it yourself and save the money. It is a pretty easy job. Me and my 6 year old did mine, no joke. A 2" lift can still run stock shocks unless you are doing some good flexing.

A 2" lift will be between 300-500. Not 800. You can do it yourself. It's fairly easy. Go to the lift kit sites and there are lots of jeep web sites with instructions and read what's involved.. A BB install is basically the same steps.

I have a 2000 TJ and run 32x11.50.15lt's without a lift. Since I do a lot of offroading I did have to trim the flairs, before the tires did it for me. I am going to do a small body lift so I can put better armor under it. Later on I might do a 2" sus lift. Oh I run wheels with an offset to accomidate the tires.

Is that for a coil lift or a spacer lift? I know the spacer lift kits are a lot less expensive.
