5.5 Suspension Lift Help!! South Eastern PA!!

I got myself a 4" lift and 6" Lift coil springs I would like to place on my truck, but I really don't have a "wide" variety of tools nor air tools. The suspension lift is a Rough Country 4" and I got 6" Lift springs as well to bulk up on the front end since I will be putting a 100 - 150lbs bumper up there soon. Have all the parts and can do mechanical tasks, just looking for someone with experence and a helper with some tools and a garage. I am willing to pay for some time, deffinately meals and drinks, and a good friendship and hopefully somebody who I can go wheeling with one day. I don't have much since we all know budgets are tight. Rough Country has 32 steps here but none of them seem too complex, seems like it can be done in 2-4 hours. Let me know if anyone has done this before, or can help me.

By the way I have a 1994 Mazda B-4000 (better known as the 1994 4.0L V6 Ford Ranger). Let me know if anyone can help me install this, Im looking to do it at their location since I have no garage, nor all that great of an assortment of tools.

Thanks Guys

haha dont plan on 8 hours with a rough country lift... its allot of fun lemme tell ya....

oh you will also need a grinder for the rivits... also a spring compressor might be a good idea also... b/c if its a 4 inch lift the springs will be fun putting in... good luck...
