Talk about headaches. Good luck. You'd be best off talking with Mudrat directly.

I don't think the actual lift blocks will take that long to install but... the little things are what will take the time....

The time it takes is probably a function of how much time per day you can contribute to it and how good you are at it.

Frozen and rusted bolts may give you some unforseen greef...

Good luck,
Glenn

well it took me and a buddy about 48 hours to lift his 84 wagon 8in. it drives now but we still have to do the tcase install and front diff mount. now this is our first time. but i would figure to do everything nicely and do a good job i would say 60 hours or so.(thats work time with one person)

so if your time is worth anything it would be cheeper for most to take it to Mudrat and have him do it.....
