    As title says I just bought the RCD lift...anyone know how to put one on...or where would you take it? all I know about is 4WP??

    I'm not asking for free help either..i could give ya some money or I have a carpet, tile & grout, and upholstery cleaning company. www.AlpineCleaningSolutions.com we could trade or a mix of both.

    4wp would probably be an expensive route but the can suprise you with a decent quote. I know the rcd kit requires you cut the cross member.
    Call around to some shops and get some quotes. Rock and roll offroad is in North Richland Hills and does good work.

    4WP said they won't put it on..cause they don't carry them.

    Not really sure. I do all my own work, but I would never try to tackle a drop bracket install....too involved...

    There are some really good directions on the wheelers website or maybe RCD's. I tacked a lift on my truck yesterday and it's really not to hard. You WILL need 2 people to get everything put back together. I don't mind helping but I wouldn't feel comfortable cutting someone else's truck. Call Fort Worth Champion Spring on Henderson street. They have done really great work for my whole family.

    Too bad you aren't in Houston. I know a local guy who would probably install it for a good price.
