Having it done at 4WP for that cheap, haven't heard of $153.26 installed for everything-spindles, aal, shocks, cam&bolt...I thought that was a hell of a deal...Plus I have a warranty on it instead of a couple of guys installing it and having none!

Its usually twice that, even more sometimes at other places!

i dunno about 4wheelparts man, my friend has his jeep lifted there, and his control arm bolts fell out and the pitman arm was loose... maybe its just the plano one, but after u get it all installed make sure u double-check all the bolts and stuff, i dunno, i dont trust them now.... hopefully they wont mess up if i get my gear swap done there

but anyway good deal, its gonna look great man

Well, I have been going to the 4WP here in Jacksonville, FL for years now(my buddy does too), haven't had one problem yet with anything from them..We know everyone that works at that store including the ones who do the installation of lifts, etc...I trust them and it takes alot to get that from me. We'll see how this looks..

You have a "GIT ER DONE" sticker on your truck and someone else is doing the labor... :doubt:

And that someone else will be providing a "warranty" with the installation of the spindles...Trust me- I would do it myself, but "what if" something went wrong down the road and it was down to the spindles not being installed correctly or something? Then I would be scr*wed..

I see where you are coming from though man, but you have to look at it in another way when doing something like this...

Thanks man, I have been waiting for a while for this time to come, but I have one more thing to do before I can actually say that I have completed my modding with the truck...That is get 33s with this lift sometime down the road!

If anyone else is lookin at going to 4WP to purchase a lift and have it installed by them, before you go stop by a bookstore and pick up the magazine Off-Road Adventures. Its published by 4WP and has roughly a 20 page sale insert, but in almost every month at either the beginning or the end of the insert they have a coupon for XX% off of installation. May was 10%, June was 50%.

Hey man, June is 50% off the whole month! I talked to the manager at my 4WP and he said that it was good for the whole month! They worded it wrong in the mag...

Got that right, had to get it aligned right after, I have the lifetime warranty at Tires Plus since I bought tires from them and had them include that extra 10-15 buck for each tire for lifetime alignment...Been great so far...
