help installing a 3.5" lift

I live close to highlands ranch Colorado. Unfortunately I live in an apartment so I can't install the lift kit myself which is what I would like to do instead of paying 4WP $800 plus to do it. It's the Rubicon Express 3.5" complete lift kit. It is a Short arm kit but does include new brake lines, track bar, shocks etc. I'm also installing an ORFab tire carrier but hopefully I can get that done before the lift. I'd be grateful for anyone that could help that has a place to do the install. I could use my buddy's house however the driveway is not level at all which I realize could pose a problem. Thank you in advance for any help that is given and let me know what I could do in return.

I'd be willing to help with your lift install using my garage and tools. I've lifted 4 LJs but have never crawled around under a JKU before , but assume lessons learned on the LJs and XJs I've lifted would still be helpful. My house is in Pine Junction ( between Conifer and Bailey).
If others want to join in we could make it a lift party!

Btw - I have air tools, floor jacks, jack stands , spring compressors, drills, tap and die sets , etc., so I should have everything we need.

That would be cool. We'll post a thread about a lift party once T8er locks in a date.

I might be able to assist as well. As soon as the date is worked out, if I am in town, count me in.

We are planning to do the lift on Saturday, July 12th, in Pine Junction, for planning purposes, this is near the intersection of Hwy 126 and Hwy 285.
