Can a man with limited mechanical knowledge put a 3 body lift on a 2000 Z71? Only 2 local shops in the area and both want 800 bucks to do it.

damn thats pretty pricy...i would deffinetly do it myself if i was you. just look at some other trucks and kinda see where they used what and go for it. youll have to go to someone who can weld some stuff for a couple of things but otherwise its not a bad install

OUCH! :eek:: That's what they usually charge for install on a complete 5" lift, wheel & tire mount & balance w/ alignment!!! check out the "Tech Section" here...Jason shows how he installed his body lift! good luck! :D:

Wow, I payed $300 for my suspension lift installed and a suspension lift is more difficult to install than a body lift. Those guys are smoking some good stuff if they are charging $800 for a bofy lift.

I've done 2 myself, they're easy if you have a basic knowledge of tools. Just follow the directions, take your time and you'll do fine. Then take the money you saved and buy lockers!

They're trying to rape you. All it takes is time, patience, and a basic understanding. Give it a try yourself and put the money you saved somewhere other than those crooks pockets.

If i were you i'd put it in myself, Me, Hawiiluver, and gopher put mine in with no problems. Just make sure that your throttle cable and shift cable are nice and clear out of the way of anything. It was pretty easy and would have gone relatively fast if we didnt take breaks every hour.
