I did the homework and this is what I want. I will order a set of spacers 1.5" tomorrow. Tires are not in the budget yet. I am wondering if anyone one thread can help me install. I am a newbie so I have no professional tools, or knowledge on how to do this. I am asking for help since a shop can charge me up two twice the price of the kit and THIS IS A BUDGET KIT. This is what I can do:
1. Drive anywhere, any day, at any time.
2. Breakfast and lunch is on me. Adult beverages after the install. I do not want any "spare parts" left.
3. Help with the install because I want to learn.
4. Come up with a $ compensation agreement for your time and knowledge. If such $ compensation agreement is not necessary I will leave you a thank you card and I hope you still talk to me after you open it.

Anyone interested PM me. Thanks.
I'd help you with any other mod brotha but my suspension is not something I played with... I didn't wanna risk safety because I didnt torque a bolt properly etc to save a few bucks ya know?

If you have any other installs you need help with I gotcha! I wish I had a hand ripping off my stock bumper!!!

I'm likely not going to make it this weekend. I got called in on OT Saturday and Sunday. There's a chance Sunday will be cancelled and I can make it, but it's not very likely.

Thanks. Allen and I did his WARN bumper and Winch a few months back. We would have gladly helped. I completely agree with you regarding what to do on your own, or have a professional do it. But I know there are a lot of talented mechanics on the forum that can help me and willing to teach me a thing or two. Worst comes to worst, I will take the hit. But I am house shopping and I really want to get the house...My wife wants the house, I really really want that garage and driveway

The house next to mine is for sale. Think they're asking around 400k.

Hey Kpickens11, do you live over in the caldwell/Fairfield area?

Because your jeep looks strangely familiar, I've seen it, or one very very very similar to it on Passaic ave.

You don't need it, but I would suggest it. Some of the trails are quite overgrown. Lot's of insects and spiders in those trees.......

If it's very dry, the dirt roads that are in the Stokes/NRA side can be extremely dusty. Plus there is some mud.

Lee, I'll finally be able to give you those 2in spacers! Hopefully you know how to get to the Sparta trails. I really want to check them out.

SO..... 9:00 to 9:30 at the park and ride next to the Chatterbox. Rt 206 & Rt15.

I keep my doors/top off every time we go....it's really not as bad as you'd think. Doesn't get too dirty inside (but indeed, it does get dirty...) You will end up cleaning the inside when you get home if you go doorless, but it won't be unbearable if you don't do it right away. I haven't cleaned mine since our last trip, and I drive it to work every day (weather permitting).

I'm looking forward to the spacers...could certainly use that extra height! Let me know if you want anything for them....

I took a GPS track of how we got there last time, so I can certainly get us back to Sparta.
