    4\" Shackle flip kit

    I am having a shop do the shackle flip kit. I don't have the tools or time to start dropping gas tanks, so how long do you think it would take to install so i can estimate a labor price. Thanks to all

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.

    To bad you are not in So. Calif. All I charge is a case of good beer and a extra set of hands to help with the install. Oh yea, there needs to be some good ol' Rock and Roll playing as well. LOL........... It took me and one of my friends about 6 hours to complete the project. The beer and my friends tollerance for the it kind of played into the timeframe also. LOL Hope I helped.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    You and Panther should come by my house one weekend. I'm located in Jersey too. I might be helping him with his oneday.
    I've already done mine. It took about 4 hours with some breaks of course.

    You're probably safe figuring about 4 hours of shop time. Maybe a bit longer but probably not much. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE IT IN WITH AN EMPTY TANK! If you have to haul around an extra 5 gal in the truck, do it. It's way easier to do with an empty tank.
    Thanks
