why not put the lift on your self? It would only have taken a day to get it back that way plus it kinda goes hand and hand with jeeps are built not bought.

BrandonFireMedic will vouch for me.... I am not allowed to even touch the power tools at work.

Unfortunately a lot of my jeep will be bought....... I wish I was a little more mechanically inclined, but I am sure I will be learning more than what I did before owning this jeep.
