What shop for Toy-Tec Lift (Grand/Summit/Denver)?

I need someone to recommend a shop to do a Toy-tech lift.
I'm strongly inclined to the ToyTec lift "soft ride", using the OME coils, alcan add-a-leaf, and the bilsteins to get a 3" lift. My goal is to clear some obstacles on a road I use frequently, with the added weight of a camper shell on a 2001 extended cab.
Toy-tec recommended a shop in Denver, on South Cherokee, which may be called the "Toy Shop".
Any reviews, or suggestions of other shops, would be most welcome. I live up in Grand County, but I'd like to hear from anyone who had good experiences with a shop. Thanks.

Hmmm... Grand county huh? Well the guys who have done all my work know Toyota's intimatly and they can do the lift. All Phase Off Road in Longmont CO. (303)678-7413 http://www.allphaseoffroad.com/ Vaughn or Dave will answer. Tell 'em Molly recomended them. If you live in GC what you could probably do is pick a day to pick up the lift from Doug (ToyTech) in the morning and then bring it over to All Phase. They should be able to get the lift done in 2-3 hours. They also have the equipment to compress the coils into place. Just bring a book os romething to do - and there is a starbucks and Mexican place nearby...

I think their quality is excellent and their prices are always fair.

Dude do it yourself. Tacotoy could do that job in his sleep.....pipe up Rich! i have the ToyTec w/ Alcan AAL's waiting to install (since like NOvember, I know, I"M a slacker). It's remarkably easy. A bunch of us did the job on MuddButt's truck before he expatriated himself from the club. (don't be an elitist stranger muddbutt!) I also have a camper shell, and ARE, and am going to use KYB MOnomax shocks for the front.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the positive comments.
Hope I'm making the right choice with the ToyTech 3" softride lift.

I just swapped out the springs in my same ToyTec/OME kit for the 882's, since I now have a winch and bumper to support. Doug traded me up the new, in-box uninstalled 881s for the 882s, no problem. I bought the kit in November, and been slacking for six months on the install.
