Aev lift install costs

Looking at aev 2.5 or 3.5 lift. Don't want to use local dealer and honestly, even looking at AEV website I can't find an installer that looks reputable to my eye (some list every product except aev). Anyway, I am not doing this myself......so what should it cost. Dealer quoted $1,200 for the 2.5 (labor) and said it required cutting etc. I feel like I'm being bent over. What are average install costs?

I helped my buddy install an aev 3.5" and all it cost him was a cheeseburger. So my advice is to go find a dumb friend.

the only real hard part of the AEV install is the vague instructions.
It is relatively straight forward..
I am doing a 3.5 and it is going well.
Like I said if the instructions were written better I could have cut off at least 3 hours of install time and cut mistakes/guessing to zero.

yes there is some drilling and cutting involved but if you have the proper tools then it is a basic install.
And you will also need to find a good alignment shop to do the alignment after the install..

You don't really need a dumb friend to do the install but it sure helps..

I live near Northridge 4x4 in Washington state and they quoted $500 for the 2 1/2" lift and $700 for the 3 1/2 " lift installation. This did not include a new drive shaft or the exhaust spacer, which I would do myself (the exhaust spacer, that is). This quote included the alignment afterward.
