Sound Resonable?

$2800 for a Super Lift kit, Install and alignment?

Personallly I think it sounds pretty good but just want a couple opinions before I go ahead with it....

How much are they charging you for the SL? Check out Off Road Warehouse's price. Any reason you can't install it yourself?

No Garage or friends with a garage to do it in.... I know I could take it to the hobbie shop on base but I dont want to deal with that again.... Just doing my BL was bad enough

Sounds spendy. Thats roughly $1000 for install which is way too much IMO.

Does it come with a new drive shaft? That sounds like way too much to me.

No but its one of the only shops around so that might be why its so high

EDIT: The kit I was going to get is 1692.... So if its the one they get it would be around 1200 for the install and thats pretty steep.... I could order the wheels tires and lift for 2919.... My MAIN problem with doing this myself is I dont have an area to do it other than the hobbie shop like stated before and dont know anyone with the know how that could help

if you can do your body lift yourself.. why not just toss the suspensionlift on yourself in your driveway... just need a couple jacks stands and basic hand tools.... Sure it'll take a little bit longer.. but you'll save the $1,000...

I live in a military dorm... So no driveway... Just basic hand tools? I read the instructions and they said something like a trosion bar puller?

But saving 1000 is kinda swaying me

EDIT.. Idk about the suspension anymore... Might just go with 33's and new wheels seeing as I already have a BL
