    did anyone see the brute AEV jeep running 130K on top gear the other day? i gotta say the quality of that show has gone downhill, everything seemed so staged and unbelievable to me. the Brute was running 38's as well, pretty sweet looking but dont know if i would want one at the price point.

    So uhhh...

    I have no idea how to approach this other than just asking.

    I have a full OME lift that has been sitting in my dining room for a month now. Obviously it would serve me better on my truck.

    I solicited Jace's services which would be awesome, no doubt. However it may be a while longer before he gets a day off to do it. Also, another personal downside is, I won't be able to learn/wrench on the suspension because he'll be doing it at Stevenson.

    Jace would totally understand and support it if I had someone (or multiple people) come over and install the lift at my house.

    I just feel greedy asking if anyone is up for it. Plus I figured it's camping/wheeling season so people rather be on the trail and in the woods than at my house.

    I can offer up racks of smoked ribs, beer (and soft drinks for the non drinkers), bro hugs and a smattering of compliments. Does cash come into play? I could certainly do that too. I also have a 7 year old daughter so if you have children around the same age - they can keep themselves entertained.

    Another thing to consider is I have a decent mechanic tool set with an assortment of other tools. But I do not know what all goes into doing a full suspension replacement at home. I do not have air tools or a grinder (although I could purchase one).

    This is for a 1998 Extra Cab, btw.

    So I dunno... anyone want to make a friend for life? :eek:

    Are the springs and shocks already assembled? If so that makes things pretty easy. I unfortunately will be headed on a pretty long vaca starting tomorrow.

    Yes, I had Cruiser Outfitters assemble them.

    Enjoy the vacation.

    Start soaking the bolts that need removed with PB blaster and it shouldn't be to terrible. The key is getting a couple people together that know what to do, which was the case installing my lift kit. I probably would have been lost without this one friend

    I've done a few with slapps on here. They really aren't that bad if the coils
    Are assembled and you have the right tools.

    Yeah if I knew then what I knew now I would have just installed it myself with the help of a couple friends.

    But Jace did an amazing job with the install and I will continue to take any job I can to him.

    Yeah, that's the thing.

    I pretty much have no idea what I'm doing.

    At all.

    This is my thought too.

    I know with Jace it's going to be a grade A professional job. And I much rather give him my cash than another professional outfit that I have no association with such as Slee, etc.

    It just seems like it'll be awhile before he can get to it, plus I so badly want to partake in it so I can learn.
