How much is labor? The lifetime warranty on parts and labor sounds enticing. What does the fine print say? Are they going to give you probelms if something breaks due to wheeling?

First of all i dont wheel a whole lot, but i like that if something does wear out i get a new one for free. They said 9 hrs labor for $675 i kinda cringed when i heard that. Im the first one to admit that i am by no means a capable mechanic, even if i was i dont have the facilities to do a lift myself. My only option is to have a shop do it. I've just started to shop around so maybe a more affordable option will come up. :shrug

$75/hr shop rate seems a little high to me. Spose the guys doing the work even get $20 of that? I'd buy the lift and get some buddies to help do the installation. It ain't a cruise missile.

too bad .............. if you put the work into it yourself, just think of what else you could buy with the difference .. including the pride og doing it yourself .. that is worth something as well.

you should really take this opportunity to learn about your truck ..... but, whatever suits you

Hey Redclay, if it's really not that hard of a job. I'm sure you've got some friends that would be willing to help you out and if not I was looking at the Dixie Chapter Map and there are tons of bronco lovers around you. Maybe if you get in the Dixie Chapter section and talk nicely you may get a few of them to give a hand. If you were closer you could come over and we could do it in the garage on weekend.

Edit: Just thinking if you aren't in any big hurry for that lift and could make the drive up one weekend we could put that lift on. With the little one just here and trying to get settled in with him it may be a couple of months but I would be willing to give you a hand and we cold put it on.

hell yeah, i would help, but i am in KS. doing it yourself will also make it easier to fix and maintain as you will know whats what. it will cure any lack of self confidence in your mechanical ability.

I bought a used Dick Cepek Stage 2 lift with extended superlift arms for in the neighborhood of 400. The lift itself isnt all taht hard to set up, But getting all the stock brackets off are killer. Some are riveted, Some are bolted, Lots of the bolts are frozen. Do some research first, shop around. You may find a better deal, or a nicer lift for better money. Dont be afraid to buy used either..

words of wisdom :thumbup and you'd be suprised how far free food n beer would get u. I'd say shop around but considering my dealership is around $71 per hour labor cost, probably ain't gonna find it much cheaper. then again you're in a different corner of the world so :shrug
