Colorado lift assistance?

Hi all,

I'm trying to lift my '12 regular cab a bit and no longer have access to a garage. I also seem to be missing quite a few sockets these days

Just doing 5100s up front with stock coils, was planning on doing the quick install trick of compressing springs on truck, unbolting, lowering down, etc. that many people have done and claim to be safer than spring compressors (I've lowered many cars, I hate those things!)

For the rear, I ordered the Wheelers 3 leaf progressive pack, came with new ubolts and whatnot.

If anyone would be willing to lend a hand and a safe place to work, plus a socket or two should I be missing them (and ideally a torque wrench), I'll gladly do all the knuckle busting and sketchy steps for some coaching. I'm pretty mechanically inclined when I'm not guessing or trying to make the wrong tool do a job, and will gladly arrive with whatever beer you may want and cash (~$100?). I'm in Fort Collins so I guess anywhere along the front range is doable.

Much thanks, sorry if this is wrong section but I figured it'd get lost in the CO BS thread.

Wow, thanks Gramps and Tonto. I'm in Fort Collins as well so that's pretty awesome.. I'll PM - and Gramps, if I can't figure something out with Tonto I'd be more than willing to drive to Littleton for an experienced hand.

Sounds like Tonto should get taken care of without the commute. Oh and Tonto you just need to stay mobile in the shitter and you won't miss a page.
