Got my new lift kit!
 
Hey Socal wheelers. I FINALlY got my rough country 4" lift kit with brake line extensions front and rear. And for those of you that have wheeled with me in the past you will no longer have to see me scrape my way through a trail lol The bad news is my buddy who i wrench with was forced to move and i no longer have a wrenching pal. I was wondering if anyone in a 100 mile or so radius would like to help me install my lift. Esp those who have the same kit. It would be greatly appreciated. I just need someone with a little more experience than me. I know how to turn a wrench i just think someone who has done a few could tell me the tips and tricks and appropriate order that works best. Plus im Not the best with bleeding brakes.
I will be more than happy to supply the garage and most tools needed. And all the pizza and beer a guy could want. Or i will drive to you. Im located in Huntington beach thanks guys/gals

Im surprised nobody near you has answered up yet. I dont know too much about YJs but I have the garage and tools to do the job if you dont mind driving all the way to Santa Clarita.

Or you could come up to Ridgecrest? Hiya Josh!

Come on up Josh! We'll get you squared away :thumb: I'll provide the pizza since that's what I do :D We can find some help besides Jeff and I. Right Jeff?

Congrats on the lift. That's awesome. Sorry, I don't know anything about YJ's.

I'm sure the twins would love to help you and they seem to know almost everything. They may be living in a motorhome somewhere, but between Jeff & Stan I'm sure there's a garage to work in.

Congratulations, that Jeep will be unstoppable soon. I can't believe how well it did as it is :thumb:

I think im gonna try and pm turdhurd though being that hes the closest and money is a little tight. And I gotta afford tires someday huh lol.

Sorry bro. I'm local but about useless. Knees and back are shot. I might be able to do a few things but lifting and such is out. But if you end up local holler I can bleed brakes like crazy.

jeff_in_rc 10-09-2012 09:54 AM

So Josh, did you guys get to it yet?

H2_recoveryteam 10-09-2012 10:14 AM

No ive just been crazy busy with work and school but i think if everything pans out me and my brother are going to tackle it this sunday. In the mean time i will keep staring at it lol.

jeff_in_rc 10-09-2012 11:17 AM

I understand. Now I have to replace all of my u-joints as I have a couple that are going bad. Can't go wheeling until I do, thats another $200.00 plus wheel bearings, ouch!

H2_recoveryteam 10-09-2012 02:33 PM

Oh man jeeps are an expensive yet fun hobby!

H2_recoveryteam 10-16-2012 05:08 PM

Well after 11 tedious hours on sunday my jeep is still not fully lifted. Me and my brother had to cut 2 shackle bolts an the pitman arm off. Then I broke my old and brittle drag link end. And now im busy busy for the next 1.5 weeks with work and school. But the majority is done I just need to get the spare parts and find the time! Jeeps are such a love hate relationship.

jeff_in_rc 10-16-2012 05:23 PM

Sorry to hear you had problems but keep at it and you will get it done. Mine is torn apart in the garage waiting for my parts. It sucks I can't drive it and have not since Friday. Come on UPS!

H2_recoveryteam 10-16-2012 05:44 PM

Yea i know it will get done. Just a matter of time.

H2_recoveryteam 11-05-2012 12:44 AM

I went with the BDS 2 1/2" lift kit, I did not want to go to the 4", my wife told me she would never ride with me again if she had to use a ladder to get in it! :rofl:

I kind of like her so.... you get the idea. :hide:
