Where to go to get stuff installed?
 
Does anyone know of a good mechanic/place where I can get my discos and sliders installed? I live a stones throw east of Sacramento.

You driveway :D :thumb: Discos are very easy to install. 4 bolts (2 per side and you're done. Depending on the sliders I suppose I could understand wanting them professionally installed, and in that case I can't help you. But best of luck :thumb:

You should do these yourself. Both of these mods just bolt on--they're pretty close to foolproof. The only thing you might need is a can of PB Blaster or a breaker bar to loosen the sway bar bolts.
If you don't have the right tools, there are probably dozens of Jeepers around you that would loan them to you. They'd probably even join you for the install to make sure nothing goes wrong. A sixpack of beer is a lot cheaper than a couple hours of shop labor.
And you'll feel great about your rig when you've done the work.

Yep, these are DIY. First steps to built not bought.

I would love to DIY so I can get to know my jeep but I live in a apartment complex that has a strict "no vehicle maintenance" policy :/

Modding is not maintenance.

Just post up in the local forum and ask...don't be bashful. I have no doubt that somebody near you will let you use their driveway or their garage for an hour or so to install the new gear.
BTW, what kind of rails and discos did you get?

Jedison 06-25-2013 03:33 PM

Lol. I have the Poison Spider Rock Rails and the JKS Quicker Discos :D

The Local Forum? :facepalm: That's not a bad idea. To be honest, I'm just not use to this type of community. I have never known a group of people who are so willing to share their knowledge and help out. Jeepers are just.... amazing people.

Lots of places in the world you can still wrench for free.
School Parking lot
Office Parking lot
Park Parking lot
Church Parking lot (ask the pastor first and be done by Sunday morning)
Friend's driveway

Not in northern California! I used to live out there and there are municipal ordinances all over the place prohibiting working on your vehicle in pretty much any public place. (So obviously some of your examples would still be ok, but probably not schools and parks).

Yep!!!! To every one that knows how to behave, and not tear up the terrain!!!! We are VERY pro-active about treading lightly!

Jedison 06-26-2013 04:48 PM

That reminds me of a quote, "tread lightly but carry a big....."
