Where to get a Lift Installed
« on: June 09, 2020, 09:08:42 PM »
Hey Jeepers,. I am finally ready to get my mall crawler a lift and new wheels and tires.  Looking for a metalcloak 2.5 lift.  Where is the best place to get this done?  I have not skills to attempt myself.  It is my daily so I don't want it to break.  Thanks for your info.

I'm not sure what the current policy is in the club on gatherings, but once we are back in the normal swing of things, I would recommend a wrenching party. We have plenty of knowledge and tools in this club that could save you a bunch of money.

What type of Jeep do you have?

I second the  idea of a DIY. with the available talent  in the club a 2.5 lift is a easy  install  in a day. By installing it yourself you begin the process of understanding how your rig works leading to how to  fix it if something break  down the road.  I have a garage and tool will be happy to help  when the restrictions begin to relax.  For shops there are a few in the area  each member has his or her own  favorite shop  depending on where you are  and how is closer.  OCD, ORI, Manassass of road, Chaos Fab shop are all good choices.

Thanks for the info.  I am just having a hard time pulling the trigger.i just need to do it.  A wrenching party of course would be great, bit I would bring zero skills.  But it never hurts to learn.  Thanks again for the info.

Exactly.  That is how we learn.  Rob is a master with electronics.  His work on my sniper install was nothing short of professional.  I learned from him that day for sure.

I'm in the same boat as far as knowledge is concerned.   I was waiting for some wrenching parties so I show up, help, and learn in the process so I would have the knowledge myself.    Covid-19 put a dent in that so far this year.

Sucks doesn’t it?  Wrenching parties are the best.  For some reasons the ones that I have held have gone on way too long.  Too much chatting I suppose.
