Motivation for my DPG OME ultimate kit

So i just started a new teaching job and when given the job was asked if i would coach the middle school girls basketball team. I actually have never played nor do i know the rules and i told them this. They told me the stipend was $2700 and that means a lift kit in the spring. I am looking at the DPG OME Ultimate Kit and was wondering if i could get pictures of your rigs with this kit or something similar that would be great.

This kit is def what i want to get. Im thinking of doing a small tc drop instead of motor mounts. I have heard that doing the motor mounts is a PITA and my tools are limited. Opinions and pictures pleaseeee!

What was the worst part of the install. I have a friend who is going to help and he said that a body lift and motor mount lift will be hard, yet he has replace the entire floor of his cherokee along with the motor. Are those two tasks really all that difficult? And LFD firemedic the flat flares and wheel tire combo are pretty sick.

I had two other people helping me in a friends garage with all the tools you could imagine. It took us about 10 hrs total, but we were in no hurry, just taking time, having fun, and doing it right. The right tools and someone who is mechanically inclined goes a long way.....thanks for the compliment, I worked hard to get everything on it the way I want it. I have OR Fab front bumper, rear bumper, and tire carrier. They are awesome and tough as nails. Good luck, you won't be let down with the lift results. Hope to see pics after it's done

Honestly nothing was too technically challenging. Just a lot to do, and I did it by myself. You can get it done easily in one weekend. There were a couple unnecessary steps along the way (sheering off rear shock bolts) but it all turned out awesome!

Not really sure, it's just the company name: DPG Off-Road. The owner's name is Dirk so it probably has something to do with that

I mean im not afraid to try myself its my daily driver so a weekend maybe a day longer might be it for the spring and my friend is def mechanically inclined the cherokee i mentioned is going up on dana 60s so no joke of truck when its done for sure. He should be capable despite his moaning. Again thanks for all pics and input. its just straight fun to talk about and keeps that motivation factor. 2700 is all extra that i usually dont have so im pumped and i have a lift kit change jar with about 350 in it :-) im saving to do it right

Here's mine again, but blowing a rear tire yesterday. Eeek. Now I'm deciding upgrading to MT/R's and going to 35s after my metalcloak comes in

It was a pain getting the driver's side mount out (you have to completely take it out to back out the bolt). But it's nothing too technically hard
