Best off-road shop in NFL?

Want to get tires/wheels/lift kit installed for as cheap as possible... anyone have any recommendations or experiences they'd like to share?

what kind of lift? I'm sure there are some people around that wouldn't mind giving you a hand and teaching you how to do it. It's a lot better when you do it yourself

Too bad I just left for military training or I would be glad to lend a hand. You will find it is very easy to do just be sure and use a good spring compressor and not a cheap one.

I heard the Kieth Pierson installs lifts for pretty cheap.

toytech spacers in the front and add a leaf in the rear? Pretty easy... if Neil is available he has pretty much everything but a lot of spare time. I put a 3" spacer lift on my taco pretty easy... I wouldn't mess with a cheap spring compressor though... they are dangerous. take the whole mount to a shop and have them swap the spacer in and you do the rest of the work. That is a pretty simple lift to install so any of the shops should be able to do it pretty easy. I wish I could help more but between work and my son I barely have time to work on either of my yotas.
