Want to lift my JKU

First post to the forum! I recently bought an '08 Unlimited Sahara and would like to add a 2.5" Teraflex Budget Boost. I don't have any experience, but would like to try installing myself. What's the minimum equipment setup I'll need? Anyone in the area willing to help me for a little beer, pizza or $$$? I'm in Beaverton. Thanks for reading this!

I just did the AEV 2 inch lift on my 12 JK. You will need a floor jack at least two jack stands. A drill, sockets, breaker bar, torque wrench, patience and about 4-6 hours if your doing it by your self. If your over 50 you'll need three beers a hot shower, ibuprofen and Ben gay after your done. Other then that its pretty simple. If your doing 2.5 you'll want to get the alignment checked. You might have to center the steering wheel which is simple. You can google it. Even at 53 and all the aches and pains there's nothing like turning a wrench on your jeep. Good luck!

Pucks are a pretty simple install. Which TF Budget Boost kit did you get?

Found some help with installing my lift kit! Tomorrow morning we'll be installing a TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost on my '08 JKU Sahara.

The puck lift is a great lift to get your hands dirty on your Jeep. All you will need is a basic set of hand tools and of course a jack and jack stands.
