Lift Kit Question

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/3-2-L...Q5fAccessories

Is this lift kit worth the money? Do you think that it will actually work?

I want a lift but the only one I can afford is a BL and I would have to take that to a shop to have done. I dont have any tools that I would need, as well as any way to lift the cab/bed off the frame. So I would guess I would need to pay around $300 in labor just to have it put on.

So would I be able to do this one by myself with limited tools do you think?

Thanks guys.

Don't run keys! Search around the forum. There have been many members asking the same question, and usually end up with a body lift. I'm sure you can find somebody to help you out if you purchase a body lift, maybe even from here, good ol' RF. I would say just get the Summit brand body lift and call it done. Keys, nahhhh haha. Good luck.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. If you can't install a BL yourself than you won't be able to install the keys yourself. Why can't you install a BL?

There are a few vegas members on here I think. Look em up and ask if they can help you! If you take it into the shop they will probably charge you around a grand for something that would of cost you about $150. Takes about 4 hours, a break for food and a few people.

Thanks guys.

I can't do it because I dont have any way to even get my truck off the ground, lol. Let alone lift a cab off the frame. And the fact that you have to disconect alot of stuff. I could probally do it, but I would rather pay someone to do it, that way if they **** it up they are responsible. I use my truck every day and cant afford to have it unoperational due to me messing something small up.
