Best Shop - East Valley

Just picked up a 2013 DCSB Prerunner Sport. Looking to get wheels, tires, possible lift (small leveling kit or ~1.5" lift), and maybe snugtop cap.

Wheels - Method Racing Fat Fives (17x8.5")
Tires - Nitto Terra Grapplers (265/70/17)
Possible Lift - 5100s all around with stock coils and .85 or 1.75" setting up front (not sure yet on new coils and/or height setting)
Cap - Snugtop Aero Sport

Anyone have some recommendations for where to go to have this all done as a package deal? Believe it or not, I have reached out to the dealer where i just paid cash for the truck, SDHQ, and 4WP and never got a response from any of them. Apparently business is so good these days, they don't want my money.

Figured I check with you all for recommendations. I know I can buy most of this online and install myself, but wanted to get some local quotes as well to compare and decide if my time/effort is worth it or easier and quicker to just get it done.

By the parts and wait for a mod day, most of us do our own suspension work

Very much an option (most likely to do). Still need the wheels/tires and the potential snugtop.

I can find the wheels and tires online, ship them (costs) but would need them mounted and balanced at a shop. Better to go to discount or big-o and try to get them to price match? Possibly give me some credit for the OEM tires with a couple hundred miles on them?.?.?

Part of me want to save money, but the impatient me wants to take the truck in Monday and pick it up Tuesday all done. :-)

Im sorry if i was late to responding to a PM. i have been out with Kidney stones. They are hell.

We can get everything your looking for. I will have to check availability on the Method's but they are usually good on stock with the Five's. We mist likely have the 5100's in stock, if not it's a day to get. The topper i would have to get in as well. But we can do that, or at least point you in the right direction.

As for the Tires, i would try to talk you away from the Nitto's and into some Toyo's. You would be getting a much better tire with the Toyo (Toyo makes Nitto tires to Nitto's specs) And the Toyo's are cheaper as well. 100% way to go with the toyo's.

We can also do the install for you, or answer any questions you may have to DIY. Im sure a lot can be done with a MOD day with guy's from here.

Any questions give me a call at the shop or a PM on here so i can get you some TW pricing.

Crap, I was chomping at the bit and already ordered the wheels and tires. I appreciate the reply and now know where to turn for future needs.

Hope you're feeling better and passed the stones. They are no joke!!!!
