Help wanted/needed

Hey everyone! I'm new to upgrading jeeps and . I am going to lift my jeep and I want to do/help with the install but I don't know anyone who can help and I dont have the confidence, knowledge, or tools (I don't think I have the tools) to do it myself. I live in the north suburbs of chicago and Im wondering if any of you would want to help and teach me? I could throw a little money if you want. I live in an apartment so I don't have a good area to work. I'm looking to do it in the next month or so. Thanks so much!

Re: Help wanted/needed

I am located in NW Indiana, about an hour from the loop. I have a wide array of good tools, and my best friend has a 4 post car lift and a commercial air compressor for air tools. I work cheap too. I can't think of anything we could possibly need for a lift install that I don't have. I've got spring compressors, grinders and pry bars.

Send me a pm for more info.

Gurnee area. So not too far. I just had a problem with my tranny but it's fine now. I really hope it's not the start to a bad tranny cause I have been saving and I really want to put on a lift not a new tranny!

Word of advisement take a good hard look at your Tranny mount, these jeeps are getting older and older every year. This item gets over looked so easy since it is on top of the X-member. It is easy to replace and will extend the lift of your power train.
