How much for a Body Lift install?

I am looking at getting the PA 3in. BL for big red. How much does it usually run for a shop to install a kit like this, and where would I take it? I was thinking like a tire shop, but if you have any other recommendations that would be great!! I would love to do it myself, but dont have the tools, knowledge, or space to get the job done. I am definately a noob when it comes to all the intricate things.

Thanks guys!!

Really, It looks way intense!

Just round about, what should I expect for a shop to hit me with?

its pretty easy , you could buy all the tools and a case of beer for alot less then it will cost to install. Plus if anything goes wrong its better to fix it yourself and not let someone jimmy rig it back together .

Post something on the meets and greet and see if some ppl want to help put a BL on a truck. Its very easy. Try a search on Body lifts on this site. There are some great threads out there. I thought somone found the manual online on how to install it, but I just did a search and can't find it.

Here's the online manual. It's really really easy. I've never done one and I had my lil' bro (15) help me and it took us maybe 7 hours. If you have an impact it will be a whole lot smoother.

you would hate yourself if you paid someone to do it for you and then saw how easy it is. when i do one on my ranger, it will be the 6th one i've done on various vehicles...each one as easy as the next.

body lift install rates are generally around $500-$600.
