Recommend a 4x4 shop in NC

Looking to have some work done on my TJ, I know there is a shop in Indian Trail NC, but can't find it listed anywhere online. Any ideas?

I know about Tarheel 4x4, but it is a long drive.

check out Carolina Rock Shop, when I lived in Charlotte, they were really good (if they are still around, and their work was good enough that they should be)...

What are you looking to have done and where exactly are you? I've been known to build a Jeep now and then. LMK

I'm getting a really bad vibration in the front end when I hit a pot hole or bump. This just started happening after my last trip to Uwharrie. I havent driven the jeep much due to this and its time to get it fixed.

Sounds like you have a case of death wobble. Either you knocked it out of alignment or something is loose in the front suspension. It is a pretty common problem if you aren't running heavy duty components.

I'm also looking for a place that can install a Nth Degree lift for me.
I'm in Indian Trail, NC.

Someone said that Tarheel is a rip off, but can you recommend a better (and cheaper) place that can install this for me?

Well guys I do stuff on the side to help fellow jeepers out so if you need anything feel free to give me a shout. I'm not against allowing you to hang out and help so that you can learn too. I used to have a shop that I did work out of but now I just do it out of my house in Huntersville. I have pretty much all my tools here to do pretty much anything besides build cages. I just don't have room to setup my bender and what not. I do have my Mig and plasma cutter at the house so welding and other fab is possible.

I might take you up on that offer Jeremy.
I'd like to learn a lot more about this kind of stuff.

I'll look you up when I buy my lift.
Thanks.

No problem. Make sure when you start thinking about a lift you post up on here to get some opinions. There is a wealth of knowledge on this board.

Carolina Truggies is a waste of time. I emailed them 2 days ago. I called them, no answer. Called again, spoke with someone who said he would call me back...nothing. Now they don't answer their phone. Not sure whats going on with that.

Jeremy,
I think that I've decided on the AEV Nth Degree 4.5" system.
Based on feedback from others it's a very good set up.

What size tire are you planning to run? 4.5" is pretty big. I like AEV and Nth products so I think you are on a good path. Both are well made, Well I guess they are one in the same now. As far as the lift goes at that Height I'd like to see them include arms but I've heard good feedback about it. I have installed the Nth kits on TJ's but never on a JK. I personally run a Rock Krawler 3.5" X Factor with 37's on my JK. I think for the money it and the Teraflex kits are about the most complete you can get. If you are ever up my neck of the woods I'd be more then happy to let you take a look at it or even drive it. Also we can talk shop too.

I think that I've settled on 35" Mud Grapplers. I might include some wheel spacers in if it looks like they need bumped out a bit.
Not sure if I want 15, 16, or 17" wheels though.
Guess I'll need to see them side-by-side to compare looks.

I'm all over town with my job, so I can swing by almost anytime.
Send me your address and cell number via private message.
Next time I'm up that way I'll give you a ring.
I appreciate the offer.

I apologize for not getting back with you. We've been pushing to get everything done in the shop and our office manager had a death in the family resulting in a lot of backed up office work. We can handle any work and start taking jobs on late May, sorry for the inconvenience.
