I'm considering getting a new lift on my Jeep (long arm). Can anyone recommend a shop that could install it? One that is in the bay area. I know we have the shop list but I want to know who everyone has gone to for theirs.

Thanks :beer:

I kinda expected this would be the answer from most people :laughing:
Yep....you can pay him in Redbulls, maybe try to get a small discount on the parts he'll be getting from PSC! Can't beat that...plus you can watch and maybe learn a few little things.:smokin:

Not that long ago, I talked to Mike and he said he has more work than he has time for.
Yeah, he is pretty swamped unfortunately and with only a couple guys helping him. HE has also been doing all the races lately. The new year should slow down a little. Depending on lift and how many hours needed and how much work, that can add up quick to have it installed. You have friends with knowledge, I would hire locally in the crew. :)

Lift Install Recommendations

I like the idea of another lift on your rig! FWIW, I think many would agree that Rock Krawler & Poly are the way to go. In either event, here are my recommendations for your lift install:
  1. Jim & I (or a variation of the group of us) - Then 4WP for an alignment
  2. Jason - Then 4WP for an alignment
  3. Jim, Jason, & I, and James to hold a wrench and bitch - Then 4WP for an alignment
  4. Extreme Motorsports (Gary, owner is a friend of mine)
  5. Shaffer's (Pending work schedule, which is usually full)
  6. 4WP for the whole thing (Gulp)

Rick, I've seen the damage you caused your Jeep after installing an sPod. I don't want to see what would happen after installing a lift :laughing: :hide:
You'd get a 3" lowering kit, 26" rims(Chrome ofcourse) and some fuzzy dice! :laughing:

I would never let 4WP touch my vehicle. And for alignment, go to Firestone $175 for lifetime of vehicle,and be done with it. ( or learn to do a basic alignment :p)

Okay. Okay. I've got you... I'll remember this.

Sure can do a basic alignment, no problem. But trying to measure caster precisely without an alignment machine, is a taller order...

4WP in Salida is okay, especially when you tell them how to do it. :D

My house is always available for a good install. Les Schwab in Manteca has done a great job for me on alignment although I told them to give me 1/8 toe out. In regards to which lift, you could fill up 20 pages on peeps giving recommendations. My lift has worked out good, but If I did it again I would go with a Rock Krawler Triple Threat Long arm Kit. Just my $.02 cents.

You need new ball joints as well Marcy. Just seemed like to much play on the uppers. Especially the passenger side.
