DutchmansLJ U could get all the correct tools probly cost around 200/300$ and a new or stock linkage is cheap to find from craigslist or other sites that sell after market ones, do the research and u can do anything if you are determined. and have friends help. basic lift kits are not hard to do and only require an alignment from a shop after u put it together.

also alot of auto stores like NAPA rent tools out and use the deposit as a hold on there tools but refund everything once u return there product

Rubicondon53 With that horrible 3" body lift there arre many things that must be unmodded.. Google 3" body lift jeep tj ". That'll give you an idea why a shop wants so much $ to make it right .. Even with mechanical experience it's an easy 12 hour job.. A shop might get it done in 8, and that doesn't include the suspension work... Bummer

The removal of the body lift and the 4wd linkage is molded to fit the 3" BL

Lift dilemma

So I bought my jeep with a 3" body lift. I was looking to get it removed and put a suspension lift. I got a couple quotes with the lift kit only being $545(just a base) and after install it would cost around $1750.

I would do it myself but I don't have the jacks to do it and idk how to take the body lift off. Even if I could the previous owner has had the 4 wheel drive and shifter adjusted to the body lift.

And who wants to pay atleast 1200 in labor
