ReadyLift 2.5" Lift Kit??

Hello to all... I dropped my truck of today to have my 35" pro comp tires and Ready Lift 2.5" Lift kit installed. They mounted the tires and then told me that they could not do the lift kit due to the lift they have can not lift the truck by the frame. they would have to take it to their other location 2 hours away. My question is how hard is it to install this lift kit? I have two jacks that are srong enough to lift the truck but I would have to lift the front first, drop it, then do the rear. Has any one installed this kit. its just spacers so I dont think it would be to hard. Thanks

ist not that hard at all... just get some big long jackstands and support it by the frame... i think it would take you a few hours to do it yourself...

get 6 ton jack stands... they will extend to 2 feet.... i got mine at autozone for like 50 bucks for 2...

if its still not long enough jack up the front end and take off both wheels that way you can lower it even more so that you can support it with the stands on the frame....

These are nice:
10 Ton Jack Stands - Norco Pin Jack Stands


I have the 10 ton ones that go 28-47" tall. Worked out nice swapping rear blocks on my 01 with a 8.5" lift and 38s, and on my 07 (stock height).

Saves you have having to stack anything under normal height stands.....I've seen people do some very unsafe things to get normal jack stands to work.

I went to go look at a truck locally that a guy was having problems with. I told him on the phone that he needed to disconnect his trac bar, but he didn't believe me so I stopped by on my way out that night. He was using stands meant for like a car, with sitting on some plywood with four 2x4s used as stilts.....and some screws at the edges of the stands to keep them from sliding off of the plywood

No way in hell would I ever work on or be under anything like that.
