I'm not going to post on this thread anymore, but I will say this: Everything that is being done to my truck is to fix problems that I previously knew existed, or had a good idea existed and needed confirmation. I used to do all my own work in the past, nothing as big as a SAS, but I fixed all my own stuff and ain't afraid to get in there and get dirty. I would also like to think I have a decent enough mechanical knowledge to see if I'm getting bull-shitted by a shop.
I have recently been medically retired from the Army for injuries I sustained overseas, and I am physically disabled so I can't do a lot of work on my vehicles anymore (although I recently did install a lift, sliders, bumper, and winch on my wife's '03 4Runner).
The place I am having work on my truck may have had some negative comments from other people, but I have nothing but positive things to say about them based on previous experiences with them. They have done great work for me at very reasonable prices, and I will continue to go there when I am unable to do it myself. If I have a bad experience with them in the future I will be sure and let everyone know about it, but until then they have earned my trust and my business.
Thanks for the welcomes to the board and hopefully I see some of you on the trail.
