Default summit racing 3 inch body lift

i just purchased a summit racing 3 inch body lift, my dad, whom apparently does not trust me, will not allow me to install it myself. so i need to find an installer that is not insanely expensive. allsouth wanted 650, and would only install a kit purchased from their store. i live in buford GA, and the closest person i found lives two hours away in milledgeville, but only wants 200. its a little too far though. anyone got any suggestions?

See about starting a thread in the meet section. There should be some guys on here that will help.
If ur dad wont let u do it tell him to help you. Spend a few hours together and bond as father and son.

----------

If he wants some one to do it tell him to fork over the cash.

X2, Show him the instructions. Both of you study them and do it together. If he still wont let you do it, check with body shop guys see if they want to make a little extra cash on the side for a weekend project

If his dad bought the truck that would not be wise to say. He will then be taking the bus.

Helped install one after doing a bodylift and it fit just fine.
