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! : 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! :
'98 Dodge Ram 1500 QC SLT 4X4 5.2, 5" SkyJacker Stage II Kit, 35/12.50/15 GoodYear MT/R's on 15X8 Weld Sidewinders, Flowmaster Cat-Back Exhaust System, Volant Cool Air Intake System w/ Ram Air Scoop, Custom Audio System.
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.
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.
