Lift Party?? (Portland)

Hey Fellow jeepers,

So I just emptied my bank account and bought me a slew of mods for my jeep. Got some new wheels, 35" tires and also front/rear bumpers coming. First things first though, I need to install my AEV 2.5" lift.

I am torn as to tackling it myself or biting the bullet and having a shop do it. Lots of folks in here say it's a good way to learn about your jeep and I couldn't agree more. I am fairly handy and pretty certain I can handle the job, just curious if anyone might be interested in helping me out. I can buy beer, ribs, pizza...whatever it would take to entice a fella or 2 to lend a hand.

I have plenty of space to do the job in our covered warehouse @ work - looking to tackle it this Saturday the 27th.

If interested, let me know!

Where in Portland? Hope you can get someone to Help you out. The AEV lift shouldn't be too hard at all. I'll know by Friday if I'll be busy or if I can stop by to help out.

Very good price for gears. Cheaper than what I paid.
