thgr8alex Hahah good advice!! I didnt wanna charge too much but he was pretty persistent on asking how much to pay me. He never has time to work on it which is why he wanted me to do it. If he finds time to help then itll be little to nothing but if its just me and whoever i bring then i may just say i dont care whatever you think its worth since i love doing this stuff anyway haha

Carry a can of PB Blaster over to his driveway a couple days in advance and hose down every body mount bolt you can get to, don't forget the one in front of the radiator.

bingo.

I help friends with working on their jeeps. they provide lunch, I usually provide the knowledge and tools. if they break a tool, they replace it. then when I need help, they come help me work on my Jeep.

Big Cole [QUOTE="thgr8alex;3912883"]My neighbors got a 03 or 05?? Rubicon and its bone stock. He sees my jeep which im always working on and loves it and asked me how much it would be for me to lift it for him. We talked and i think are decided on a 2" BB and Jks 1.25 BL. Simple, and not expensive. Ive installed BB before but not a BL. I lifted body off frame while installing sliders though and read instructions and seems easy enough. Any tips or tricks? And i cant decide on how much i should charge for the labor of this job? Any ballpark ideas?[/QUOTE

Are you prepared to deal with rusted body Mount bolts that can't be extracted with cutting a hole in the body? I would definitely help with the BB but stay away from the BL.

PStov98TJ Not sure on the labor needed for a bl. But I'd tell him a case or two of beer for the job but if he insists on paying you, I'd say $100 or a trip to a near by offroad park on him or something.
