Don't go butane go oil then use your old oil to run it. Alot of guys I know run their shops that way. Saves money

Justin, post up when you're plan on starting it - I'll be there. I'm looking at putting a 2" lift on mine as well, just haven't decided what stuff to get. I think I'm gonna frankenstein it.

Just a heads up for a build thread...

Sears has their twist dial 3/8", and 1/2" torque wrenches on sale for $39.
Just got the last one from the chapel hills mall. might still have some down at south gate.

I know of 2 places, but they're here in Denver.

One is called Club Workshop. They have a 2 post lift, community tools and almost anything else you would need. They charge $20/hour for use of auto area and you can call ahead and reserve the lift.

Welcome to Club Workshop

The second is called DIY Auto in Westminister. They charge $25/hour and have 5-6 bays all with brand new lifts and tools you would need. Also, they have tech-assist if you were to get stuck and I think it's something like $10/hour on top of the 25, but I don't think you'd need it. This place may be a bit more restrictive on multiple people working on one rig, but then again they might not. It's be worth a call to ask

DIY Auto Repair Shops : Fully Equipped Self-Service Auto Repair

Give me a shout when you confirm dates and I'll help if I'm free

Thanks bud. Great information and I'll probably end up using one of those places. A cold garage floor doesn't sound fun

No worries man. And I agree, they're much better than the cold. I was at club workshop yesterday rotating tires. There are never more than a couple people there and I've been the only one in the auto area for all but 1 out of 8 or so visits

They have all kinds of CNC machines and lathes and a welding shop. It's pretty gnarly

Justin. If I sent you a text with a video could you put it on you tube?

Not sure why I can't but it won't let me and I want to post the video here for people's opinions.
