    Gonna be ready to install the lift on the Burb within the next few weeks and was wondering if anyone has a place inside they would consider renting to do the project? Preferably with an air compressor.............heated would be nice too ! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I would gladly pay to not have to do this in the driveway in December/January in the rain/wind........... /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I'll supply the brewski's and the Snakebite. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hours, not days.............. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Probably 4-6 hours, depending on how long it takes to remove the steering arm............ /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Does it have 110V?

    Wow - I thought you were tough Frank /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Just think of the memories you have the opportunity to create right now with your kids - what could possibly be more fun than laying on wet concrete installing a lift?


    Sorry I can't be of more help... But it's fun to antagonize you nonetheless!

    Well Frank, my garage is open. I can fit my blazer with 7" of lift and 38's on it inside and close the door. The garage is insulated, but not heated. I have a portable heater for that. I have a compressor and all the tools we'd need to get the job done. We' probably have to leave the door open, but I'm pretty fast at lift installs, so we could do it in a few hours. Also, I know the trick to getting the steering arm off quickly. Let me know if you need a place.

    Nope, still deciding what configuration (amount of lift - 4" or 6", rear block or spring), etc.............should be ordering the parts soon and hopefully have it done by Jan 1......... /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Mike, refresh my memory - what is your lift? Body lift also?

    My rig has 4 inch procomp springs on the front, 5 or 5.5 inch Superlift blocks in the rear, plus a one inch body lift from ORD. I am planning on going to a 4 inch all spring lift from either Tuff Country or Skyjacker. My Procomps make my truck ride like a tank, I don't recommend them. Although I recently rode in another burb with the exact same springs, and his rode alot better than mine. Of course he had a 1000 pound diesel engine in it to help smooth them out /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. I would say what ever you go with (4"or 6") go all spring. If you use a body lift, I absolutely recommend the 1" ORD pucks. Anyhow what ever you go with let me know when and where if you need any help, I'd love to give a hand if I am available. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Those BFG AT's you had on at our meeting - were they 35's? Have you had to trim the fenders? /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
