Nobody knows where you are. So, nobody can do it for you.

Judging by the use of the word “who’ll” and the lack of usual sentence structure, I am guessing he is in New York somewhere. With a spelling of Devin and not Devon, It is obvious he is in Dutchess County. The use of “3k” and not $3,000 or $3k would put him in Fishkill.

But that is just a guess...

You will have more money paying someone to lift it than what you paid for it

With 220,000 miles on the ODO no way would I pay $3000 for it. You will dump way to much money into it just fixing stuff before you get to lift it. The resale value of that Jeep will be exceeded very quickly. Save your money and buy something with lower mileage and likely in better condition.

What he means is it seems like many of the JK/JL guys would rather pay someone to do the work rather than do the work themselves.
We YJ guys are usually poor enough that we have to do the work ourselves.

If you ask enough questions here and watch some UTUBE videos you might find enough confidence to try doing the job yourself.
You'll need a decent tool kit and a place to work. Some city dwellers and military members may not have the necessary resources to do the bigger jobs.

Let us know what you plan to do with the Jeep and perhaps someone can head you down a practical and cost effective road.

Good Luck, L.M.

You just haven't been far enough north.
Obvious to me that it's western Greene County or possibly in the mountains of Schoharie County, not Dutchess County. Taxes are too high in Dutchess County for anyone except Hillary to afford a second vehicle.
Certainly not Brooklyn where they have "terlets".

Good Luck, L.M.

Jon's profile puts him in California too. I'm guessing he moved there from New York.

Hopefully someone in the SD area has a suggestion for an honest shop in that area. Nothing will be cheap. 12b offers a suggestion to think about. If you don't do the work yourself, it'll get real expensive real quick.

Good Luck, L.M.

Or, like some of us, regardless of income or monetary holdings, would never trust anyone else to do it right. I am far too picky for my own good. Someday when I am old(er) and gray, I will either have to enlist a protégé to do the hands on while I provide oversight, or I will have resign myself to taking a lot longer to do things.
vmxwinn and JeffinOrlando like this.
