alright so the woman at the offroad shop said 1100 for the fabtech lift installed.
and she said it would be an extra 150 to install my earlier style torsion keys, and they "they might not even do anything".
so i guess ill install those by myself lol

good news and bad news...

good news: all the parts for my lift kit are in and offroad unlimited is ready for me.

bad news: i called in on my wheels and THEYRE STILL BEING BUILT. takes 2-3 weeks to build em and then they still have to ship them.

the suspense is killing me
