It took me about 7 hours, plus an added hour and a half to tackle getting rhino-liner off my rear bed bolts.. but tahts because Im pretty quick and have the right tools readily on hand.. including air tools. If your somewhat mechanically inclined and know how to work with a vengence, you coudl get it done in 7-8 hours as well.

The steering extension is only needed on the 3" lift.. perhaps the 2", but if you purchase the 3" lift, it comes with a steering extension, gas filler extensions, bumper brackets.. and everythign else you need.. minus a shifter extension if your manual, that costs anotehr 30 some odd bucks.

MAPP gas and an air impact are your best friends for this mod.

I ran 35's w/ just a 3" bodylift and cranked you're perfectly fine with 33x12.50's.
