Dude, You're too young for beer. But I'll help you out anyway. When are you doing it, and what did you decide to go with?

I won't be drinking it. I figured that it would be the only way to get people to do it and my dad said he'd buy for anybody wanting to help. I think I'm going with a Rubicon Express 3.5" kit. They come with free twin tube shocks but I'm going to sub OME's. Is that exactly what you are running?

Probably doing it a week from this weekend. Then getting it regeared the next week.

yup that is my set up. Are you going through 4x4groupbuy.com? If not, you should be. You can upgrade the shocks to OME for about 150, I think.

$75 for shipping?! Come on 4x4groupbuy. They won't discount it either. I can't afford $825. I am going to try either a 4" or 3"/1.25BL Zone Kit.

Can I come up to help/learn? Mechanically inclined, full set of tools. I'll be doing a 2" suspension lift in a few months, I'd like to learn

Don't have spring compressors which I hear you need for some suspension lifts but I have a mechanics set with sae and metric getting the t44 and 45 this weekend. When you planning on doing it?

I'll also bring a good sized breaker bar which I hear you need

6 ton jack stands. If you can get those, you would be my hero.

I am looking forward to learning as well.
