all you do is kneel down and use your back aginst the wheel well or wherever comfortable and lift with your legs and put blocks in. Once you get one block in on a side its easier!! Its really not that hard once you try it..lol.

I'm picking up some pb blaster tomorrow I need to get it on the bolts asap. Have you even done a BL be for? Get that impact! lol I have an old school compressor I'm not sure if it puts out enough power though to run an impact, I'm sure it does but I dunno, If you're coming I can meet you in like sanford which is very close to the border of new hampsure I could meet you at like the walmart or something which is right next to the main road that leads into North berwick that leads to new hampsure. Dude you're the man ha.

Yeah man whatever you can do I'd appreciate it , mad nice of you to drive up here and help.. Shoot me a PM or IM whenever and yeah, I haven't done one either and judging my the instructions it doesn't look hard at all I printed off the summit instructions with pictures at school today, printed like 40 pages rofl, but I got the pictures so I think it will go smoothly if me and you are doing it, I have some knowledge on how its done I've read up on alot of things about it.. I need to get some school work of my own done tomorrow spring break is in a week for me. What's your name anyways? ha

yeah 6 or 7am works perfect so youd be here around 9 930ish, only take us about 6-7 hours id imagine. Yeah I have a torx set so i'm good there. I'll get the rear bumper off tomorrow night and loosen the bed bolts so they'll be good to go on Saturday morning.
