    If you can do it yourself, and you have the 1) time, 2) know how 3) tools and 4) friends to help, then that's the way I would recommend.

    I just got my truck lifted a week ago after toying with wanting to do it myself over the span of a year.

    If you can afford it and just dont want deal with the hassle, pay a qualified shop to do it (cutting that cross member is no joke, if you see how thick it is and stuff). That's the route I went, and I could not possibly be any happier. I proly would have blown the install money on god knows what else anyway.

    Your thread asks for prices, and I haven't seen anybody post any so far. So I will tell you what I think: Expect to pay $600-$800 for install and that may or may not include alignment.

    If you can get a qualified shop (that knows what they doing) for $600 or less, then jump on it. $800 is on the high side, and I would expect an alignment, complete wash and a few smiles at that price.

    Lastly, just do it. Putting the 6" kit really "woke" my truck up and I really enjoy it a whole lot more.

    Just my 2 cents, and 10 bucks.

    I agree with this, but cutting the cross member is not big deal. Mark it and 5 min with a SawZall and your done.

    I installed my Fabtech and it took me 10 hours on a lift, but I also mounted my tires, installed new brake lines, and new rear leaf packs.

    Do it yourself! that way you know the lift, and understand how it works. Any issues you will know how to fix yourself, without having to spend more dollhairs on someone else's time too.

    the way I always look at it is that is $600 you can spend on more stuff for the truck if you install yourself ;)
