Need Help in Long Island!

Ok, just going to throw this out there. I am a new JKU Rubi owner in Suffolk County, LI. I am ordering a Teraflex Leveling Kit, but dont have the tools or knowledge to install it myself.

Can anyone reccommend a shop or person to do this? I called the Truck Shop in Sayville, and got a quote of approx 4 hours of labor at 100 dollars per hour.

My 130 dollar leveling kit just became a 530 dollar leveling kit any suggestions?

I would suggest learning how to do it yourself.. search the forums, and you'll find plenty of info on how to do it. Its not a hard job by any means and requires few tools. Everyone started with no knowledge, and slowly learned

Drive it like you rented it, not like you stole it. Cus if you stole it, you'd be driving 5 mph below the speed limit and using your turn signals.

It's a local group on Long Island. Look up Goonies. He works out of Planet Automotive.

You'll need a floor jack, jackstands, and a torque wrench. Once it's done, you'll have to take it to a shop for alignment, so I could probably help with the first half, but the second half, you're going to have to find someone to do. I'm fairly handy, but not sure if you want a stranger fiddling with your Jeep.

thanks for the input gentlemen- I will be looking into those groups for sure. I've recruited a few guys to take a crack at getting this thing done by myself, hope I dont mess up the new rubi .....
