wanderlust spacer lift isnt that bad to do.. Hour or so. your total toe setting will not change, just you steering wheel will be off center, very easy driveway fix.

got mine from quadratec and everything is great. if you're planning on just this lift with 33s you won't clear it. added a 1.25" Bl to mine and everything is good

Johnwbs Im going with a 5" skyjacker lift from quadratec for 600. Which will be about 4 once I put the new bumpers and winch on. Like they say " go big or go home".

Oldguy A spacer lift isn't any different than a spring install. Set the frame on blocks disconnect the upper ca's and drop the axle. need to watch brake lines so that they don't over extend. Pull the spring install the spacer then the spring, raise the axle and reconnect the upper ca's. Front is more of a pain because the spacer has to go above the spring while in the back the spacer is on the bottom. Make sure you install bumpstop extensions before the spacers and springs. If you disconnected the breaklines, bleed the system and away you go.

Installation?

Anyone know of any trustworthy and decent price place to install a 2" rubicon express spacer lift kit w/shock? I'm gonna buy it probably from 4wd.com since its really cheap with them but they want soo much more to install it and I can't afford that now.
