Lift install advice

I have a 98 2.5L that I just put on new 31's and I have an RC 3.75 Combo lift (2.5 C&S w/ 1.25 BL & MML) sitting in the garage for over 3 weeks. I had someone offer to help tomorrow and got called into to work, so here's the question:
1) I either install it myself (have tools) which I'm ok to do (haven't done anything other than tune ups and brakes for awhile) Or do I.....

2) wait (Could be another week or two) for help and do the other things I had planned for my Jeep. (Sound pods/wheels/rear tire mount bump stops, do a good clean up underneath?

I'm not available other than Sundays and during the week (which limits some group runs).

Did my 2.5 lift in a couple hours. That include running to the hardware store for new grade 8 hardware for the rear upper shock mount. Could be a challenge by yourself if your not used to working on that sort of stuff. Wait for a hand. You don't want to start and regret it!

also gives you time to soak all the bolts you will need to remove.
