so if me and a few friends did it we should be fine. I have a few friends that could be mechanics etc and we go tools i believe that r required.

is there anything besides the actually body lift kit needed. its an automatic transmission if that helps.

The PA body lift comes with everything you need. You may run into a jam with rusted or tough bolts, so torch may be needed or soak the bolts every day with wd40 for about 3-4 days before the body lift is done

No videos I know of, but make sure you keep the instructions handy, they are pretty good!

we had an issue with the filler neck extensions. my hands were too big to fit around in there so my friend's younger brother had to do it.
