Rough country 3.25 lift kit installation cost

I am going to be buying a 3.25" lift kit. I live in Brooklyn so that means I have no garage,driveway,time or any room to work on the jeep myself. My only option is to find a shop to install it for me, How much would this generally cost in a shop?

Depends on the hourly shop rate, but I would guess that it's ~$90/hr and 4-6 hours of work.

Thanks for the help I just want to get it lifted a little and throw so 33"s duratracs on it... I've seen that combo before and it looks pretty mean.

Probably the cheapest way to run 33's (aside from a sawzall) and retain a near stock ride is a 2" Budget Boost spacer lift and 1.25" Body Lift (3.25" total) for about $200.

The RC 3.25 lift isn't really that much more than a BB and BL. I have that exact lift and my one complaint is that it rides pretty rough. The lift doesn't come with new bump stops either. Here are a couple pic of my rig. I have 33x10.5x15 BFG A/Ts on procomp rims with 3.75 BS.

^ They just updated all of their kits to include the N2.0 shocks instead of the 2.2s. They are a much nicer ride.
