    San Antonio members I finally received all my lift components!!! I have the know how but lack a few crucial tools (jacks, air tools, I do have the compressor atleast) I got spoiled at the truck shop and never got around to buying my own.

    I have LR arms and shackle flip (never done but seem straight foward) and everything else I have done many a times on tacos. Anyone be willing to throw down on a mod day? I pay in beer, BBQ, usernames mentioned in build thread too haha. Also I defiantly will return the mod favors back in your direction.

    Hey bud, I have jack and jack stands and a decent amount of tools to get the job done.
    Lets just say i installed my ultimate lift kit and recently (last sunday) installed the LR UCAS so i have it fresh on my mind. I did both installs here at my apts in the parking lot by myself. Couldn't take much longer with two people. Let me know.

    I'm shooting for the 30th and roll over to the 31 if I need to button stuff up. I got plenty of deer meat to go around!!!!

    And we can change your shocks out no problem!

    That's right down the road from me, I'm down. Just gotta make sure I am free that weekend. I want to get my hands dirty so I can do my own when the time comes...

    And thats not fair on offering deer meat, that's below the belt for me you can make me do some shameful things offering deer meat...

    I have all the tools we need to do your stuff and I even have a shop with a concrete floor at my dad's but i need to see if the shop is available. let me know what tools you need (impact, jacks, jackstands, etc)

    I will be starting the rear on Thursday or friday try and knock that out. Lots of grinding to do the shackle flip. So who ever wants to make it Saturday it should go fast so we can BBQ quicker

    Clint said we'd need a spring-compressor for the shocks...so..if somebody has one or if somebody who knows what they're looking for wants to rent one and bring it (keep the receipt, I'll reimburse rental fee). [​IMG]

    Don't need a compressor, they are fully assembled struts.

    Saturday I say start about 11 or so, then we can get wobblys shocks on too
