    I just got my 4" Inch Rough Country lift. How much work is Involved with the installation and how long will it take. Will I be able to do it with ordinary garage tools? Do I realy need to lower the transfer case?

    Re: 4\" Lift

    How long? How many people (drinking how much beer)?
    Jack stands and blocks are essential - hydraulic bumper lifts are best.
    What are ordinary garage tools? More than just your standard socket set anyway.... Air tools are a plus.
    Xfer case - Eveyone will say drive and check for vibration but you will probably need to shim it.

    Check the height of your garage door before lifting it inside.... or prepare to air-down.
