Lift Kits
 
How hard is a lift kit to install? Can you do it yourself? What tools are needed? Sorry, I'm knew at all this!

hey buddy, what year and i it 4x4 or 2wd? if 4x4 and the older style like a 99 there pretty easy to install just time consuming because of rusty nuts and bolts.

Basic tools but it will go a lot easier with air tools! Pick a kit that doesn't require a lot of cutting and welding.

If you're new and have never done this before, get a friend who can help you out with it.

Keep in mind that if you want to get all the air tools to do the job, it'll probably cost you about an extra grand or so

every body kit you have to cut and weld esp with a auto tran. the shift linkage doesnt fit without welding a 3/8" steel dowel to extend.

Never welded anything on any body lift I've put on even with an auto transmission. Just get a 4" or less suspension lift and it should just be basic bolt on.
