Oh, and we have a Petrillo's Pizza around the corner - next to Tequilla Hoppers restaurant (and bar)....

Depending in the weekend this happens, I can lend a hand. I'm running an AEV coil lift and am thinking of upgrading to a 3.5 max travel, so this would be cool to participate in. It'll surprise you how easy it is. Especially with a cool guy offering to let you use his lift!

Also would love to join in! I'm living in Century City and looking to lift my rig as well. I've been having some suspension problems all the way around since i moved out here from the east coast (towing a trailer that was a bit too heavy). JPI has been the go to recommendation by everyone on here, but I would much rather get my hands dirty over a case of beer and learn something! Lets do this... and thanks LHC30!

In addition... what lifts are you guys running? I'm looking at all the options and getting quite overwhelmed. Skyjacker and RE are the kits i keep bouncing between. Probably in the 4"-5" range... thoughts?

Reaper, you might want to check out the TJ section. They can give you more insights regarding your lift.

If for some reason the weekend lift install falls through.

Rebel Off Road does awesome work and isn't as far as JPi for you. They can also normally get the lift installed that day.

Rebel is expensive.... Any shop for that matter. If it requires welding, then I would let the shop do it, if not, threads like this can save u money.

So, Adrock, what's up? did you get your kit installed?

Anyone want a "wrench day" before the Big Bear Jeep Fest?
