    Hey guys, new 1st gen owner here looking to put a full lift on my truck (parts ordered waiting for delivery) and I'm no expert mechanic but I've installed lifts on several jeeps and wanted to see if anyone is planning to install any lifts/upgrades or perform basic maintenance and wouldn't mind helping work on your truck and in return, we work on getting my lift installed.

    I'd much rather do this myself than take it to a shop but I'm open to hear to feedback or suggestions on local shops.

    Thanks in advance!

    :laugh: It’s all good, I’m sure we can get him hooked up with that lift he wants done and he can do most of himself.

    We can plan a day to do it and you can meet some of the locals at the same time. Should be a great day.

    @Phoosa , know someone local to hook this guy up?

    I have a welder but I would rather someone else do this work for you.

    Nobody I am aware of. Would be very cautious if someone said they could that wasn't legit. Too many shade-tree mechanics out there.

    He'll know how to do the shock relocate for sure. Good guy to say the absolute least (as you know)

    Although, OP is looking for a mod day :notsure:
