    Hello everybody,

    i am in need of a huge favor so i'm calling it in. I took the plunge and bought a full Mid-Travel Suspension kit (Icon/TC). I still need to buy my new bumper and a few other items but the cost of installation is going to wipe out my funds if i go to a shop.

    I am asking a few of you amazingly skilled and friendly members to take a day to help me install my kit. Food and beer will be completely on me and I will definitely tip those who help.

    We can install the kit at my house in my carport on the side of the house or we can install it in the driveway.

    Now here is the downside - I don't have any of the tools to install the kit (besides the spanner wrench to adjust the height) and I am not too savvy with suspension systems.

    Please if anyone can help I would like to do this Saturday December 3rd.

    My house is in Concord CA but I would be more than willing to drive to have the kit installed.

    Thanks!

    I'm sure you will get some help on this. I'm not in your area or I would offer (unless you want to road trip to Reno)

    I'm down if I'm in town... my flight comes back in on the first, but I don't know what my schedule is like afterwards. Have you talked to Jerry? Maybe use his place?

    Yeah, he's close enough to you... it just seems logical to ask him since I know he has plenty of tools to get the job done.

    What all does the lift consist of? Front CO's, an AAL, and rear shocks?

    I'm sure you'll get help. If you do it in Cali I can help. Tools I have is a car jack, jack stands and a torque wrench.

    I know a little bit from when I did my lift.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    if you do it in the bay area, i'll try to make it..hopefully things don't go as how they did with Alpha's lift install...man I was BEYOND pissed.

    I got all the tools you need
