Wait, before you answer!!! I know nothing about working on a vehicle. I'm well versed in building and wiring all sorts of stuff, but I've never ever worked on a car. Changing the oil a few months ago was a huge deal for me.

So, am I getting in over my head or is that the point?

Yes and yes. Go for it. You may need to borrow/buy tools but the experience is worth it.

Cool, I love new tools. It's amazing how you can have three of every tool and still need something new :D I'm sure I'll have some help, but I'm looking forward to doing more than just laying under the beastie and trying to figure out what all the parts are.

its a pretty easy install. but it really depends on what lift! if its a long arm then i doubt you can do it. but if its a BB then its pretty easy. you just need a floor jack, jackstands, some hand tools, and a spring compressor would help.

That's true, isn't it. I do know all of that stuff.

Have you ever seen a movie called Young Genius?

Man, I bet your house is cool!

It suffers from 25 years of tool-junkyitus. I learned from the biggest tool junky out there. When my pops and I built my pottery studio, he decided we needed not one, not two, but three different nail guns, and I concurred. I'm just as bad. If I need to fix something, there must be a tool I need to buy.

when you sain I knew everything, it reminded me of a scene in that movie. You should watch it though. It's way old, but it's funny.

Tiny, when I move to SoCal I'll help you with the lift...I've been very successful with IKEA instructions. They can't be much different than mods on our Jeeps. :D ...
