Dealer Day

Well i took the JC into the dealership today to get fixed the cracked, leaking fogs, the leaking drivers side rear sunroof, a spare key made, and replace missing headphone set. And inreturn they gave me this sweet taurus! Not LOL. Any who i am excited b/c i got my lift yesterday, i ordered the 2.5 lift and got the 2.0 lift so its ok, its not worth the time to send it back and what not. so if u guys have any pointers or anything on putting it on i would appreciate it. Thanks alot.

Jason

Right on, man. No pointers, really... just take your time. It's pretty straight forward of an install.

i am following your saga! many of the guys here have installed the lift themselves.....based on what i have read, 2-3 hours work.....$150? Of course if I did it myself, would be 5 or 6 hours..and a lot of cussing and screaming!

Front left took 4 hours and much cussing and screaming by me. Then my mechanically-inclined buddy came by and other 3 corners were done in 2 more hours. Cost: 1 six-pack. Alignment cost around $50, including dismounting all 10 tires and moving the sensors to the new rims. Includes lifetime alignment now. I like my tire shop.

Now Gone: TJ 00 4 liter, 2" RE Lift and shocks, a few extra skidplates, and not much else, 'cause all the money goes to:

Now HIS: XK 07 Limited Hemi, 2" RR lift and shocks, JK Rubicon wheels (255/75 r17 BFG MT), 1.5" Spidertrax spacers, Rocky Road Supersliders, Mopar heavy-duty rails and roof rack. Get Lost 4x4 Rear Tire Carrier. 4xGuard Belly Skid. Oh, and a spiffy dash mat.

Dude, when I had my Commander in the body shop at the dealer they gave me a Mazda 3 hatchback! Talk about contrast. But at least it was a fast little bugger - that made it somewhat entertaining.
