Default SC body lift help

Alright I got my PA body lift in the mail the other day. Problem is the guy that was going to put it on for me can't get to it till mid-late August. Anyone know of a place in SC that puts them on for a good price.

Thanks

How much was the guy charging you to put it in? I may be able to do it. But my timeline isn't going to be much better

He was gonna do it for $150.

I don't mind doing it myself if there is anyone that has put one on before that can help out.

get some friends, your favorite beverages, and maybe some pizza. the bed is like 6 bolts to take off and put the lift on. cab is a bit harder because it's heavier, but still not bad.

Hell, it'd be an adventure lol I'd be down if you have tools. But like I said, my schedule isn't much better

You're really throwing money away by having a shop do it... just plan for a lot of time (at least a full day) and read the how-to's and instructions ahead of time. Make sure you ask questions and if you get into a bind just hop back on here and post a thread.

x2, the first one i did completely by myself with only hand tools, it can be done, but definitely read through the how to guieds, i had the one on FRF and the one on TRS both up so i could reference them.
