I installed new front & back tubular bumpers on my own. How much harder would it be to install a moderate lift (2.5) by myself?

Shouldn't be too hard at all. Most suspension lifts can be done with a reasonable set of tools and a spring compressor. If it's your first time ever doing suspension work, you may want to set the day aside just in case you run into any snags. Also it's always nice to have an extra pair of hands and ,if you can, get someone who has worked on suspension before. It really isn't that hard at all.

In my opinion a Sahara has the extras like power windows, doors, painted flares, interior is a little more detailed. The X not so much unless you get an X-Sport which has little things like chrome on the dash panels...Either way you win!!

Where are you located SFX? The first time I did a 2.5BB it took me a while. I have done 2 BBs and 2 x 2.5" spring lifts and I can get them done in about 2 hours. If you are anywhere near Tampa, Fl I will give you a hand when you want to do it.
