I guess I've been around the block a bit. I'm just glad I can help. Don't feel obligate to use my suggestions, I'm just throwing them out there.
Mitch at ufab does incredible work. He has a quirky personality, but he knows his way around things. He did the ftoy competition thing for a few years. Now he's got a wicked TJ. He can handle it for ya.
One person I'd stay far away from is Seth (iamsparticus) up in Ogden. For some reason I can't remember the name of his shop.
Depending on your needs, IFS can be the better option. As sweet as a sas is, an IFS rig can go a LOT of places. I took my IFS taco through Hanging Tree Trail (open front diff, 35's, duals), the Rubicon, and all over Utah. My doublecab did the following obstacles on 35's w/ifs:
- potato salad hill
- hell's gate
- double whammy
- Hell's Revenge
- Golden spike
- kane creek, and tons more
- constrictor (minus Eagle's Nest)
I never broke a single thing on either of my IFS tacos because I take it easy and wheel smart. Unless you want a hardcore rockcrawler, IFS can work great if you take care of it and don't beat on it.
If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of the IFS for the type of wheeling I do: multi-day camping, backcountry/desert trips, daily driving, covering hundreds of miles of highway before the trail, and light crawling.
