Look into BDS. I got a 2 inch spring life with shocks for $389. Rides good on the pavement. Took about 8 hours,but I added quick disco's and swapped out all my control arm bushings while I had it apart.

Do it nice, don't do it twice

269jeep ha im kinda hoping i can finish in 2 days aswell...had to install some quick disconnect took me like 5 hrs damn rusted bolts lol i think it was supposed to b a 30 min install or something[/QUOTE]

Spray the bolts down a couple times before you plan to do the install.Dont waste time or money on WD40 or Liquid Wrench. Use Kroil.

I watched this guys video, he has alot of vulgar language on his videos but it helped me out

269jeep I agree with Jason. If you are going to own a Jeep, you might as well learn. I'd look for someone who has done it before.

I may not have made it clear...the price included the cost of all the parts!!

Pink_Percy All u need is basic hand tools, jack stands, a floor jack, few hours and a couple beers when your done. It's not complicated at all. There's a few good write ups on how to install a 2" bb. I would take that $400 and invest in other mods. Just my opinion though
