Lift Kit Install

I am considering picking up a gently used 2.5" AEV lift kit. I don't have the knowledge, ability or all the tools I would probably need to install on my own on my 2013 JKU. However, this is something I have always wanted to learn to become more familiar with my jeep. I am in the Sparta area and would offer more than just beer and pizza if someone was willing to help me out. What do you think?

If not, what is the best and most reasonable shop around that I should check in with for install quotes?

Thanks in advance!

I took mine to an awesome shop right near you. They installed a 2.5inch TF spring and shock kit for me.

The 4x4 Place in Lake Hopatcong.

Duhboy- tried to PM you but your inbox is full. Interested in your thoughts. Also, keep me posted about wheeling in Sparta on Saturday if you go.

Where'd you end up going and how was your experience? Always looking for good jeep shops.

Haven't pulled the trigger on a kit yet. Torn between AEV 2.5" and Mopar 2". Talked to the guys at Smashboogie. Seems like they would be hard to beat.
