It will take you longer for sure. See if you can pay off a few homeless guys with alcohol! Just be careful doing it your self, have patience and it will be worth it

Did mine myself, mostly. My wife did assist me when I worked on the front (she kept look-out for binding in the front). Be sure to follow the instructions, make sure ALL parts came with the lift, and as clinton said, be careful.

Be careful with the cab. They can move forward on you and cause a lot of problems.

Haybo19: I'm great with electrical if you need any help just pm me your cell. I work right at flood in EG but going to Tasca in a few weeks.

Others: I think I'm going to find some one with as much mechanical know how as I do incase we encounter a snag them we can think it out together? Also anyone have pics of 265s and 285s on a 3"BL I'll be rolling on 265s till atleast October

I did mine by myself, took me a weekend. Just take your time & you will have to get creative taking off the body bolts

Haybo19 I won't be running them too long. Tires are not cheap. I gotta fix my exhaust too.
