How to lift my truck??

Ok bear with me this is gonna be a little long. I have a 3" lift in my basement with new lift coils for the front and 2" helper springs for the rear. I have been waiting on doing it for a long time and I want to do it NOW. I have access to a lift but it is an hour away and the owner says I can't use it if it's below 40 degrees and I don't see that happening anytime soon. Is this a project I can do in my driveway with a couple floor jacks and jack stands? I did the leveling kit on my 2000 f350 in my driveway and it went great. Will it be an issue to do this without a lift? Just want some opinions here. Thanks!

You can definantly do it in your drive way!
Take your time, make sure the truck is level and jack stands are on flat level ground, Safety first, You will thank yourself later!

your post is a little confusing, to me,... you are talking about a lift for your truck and how do you "lift" ,in the air, your truck in order to install a lift... you have a "lift" avaiable to "lift" in the air, your truck , but it cant operate at temps below 40 degrees... probably just me.....post pics plz of your lifted truck when done...
