$600 for a bumper isn't too bad... but $1000 to install the LT kit is a rip off, unless he's planning to gusset up a bunch of shit like spindles, UCA's, alignment tabs...

did he give you specifics on anything?

well dont assume anything, because the gussets themselves either have to be bought or made, making them isn't hard but takes time, and so does welding them up... cost of fabbing up the gussets and labor to install along with the LT kit could go over $1000

make sure you know exactly what is going to be done prior to the install and paying for it... dont want ya to get screwed

2wd kit...do that install yourself and then pay to have your real fab work done like gussets, alignment tabs, and limit straps. You'll learn a bit in the process that will be worth it in the field if you gotta do some repair work.

Look forward to seeing the finished pics!

Give yourself plenty of time and relax, it's not as hard as you think. Make sure to grease everything as you go.

Make sure to use a steady set of jack stands as well.
