SE Florida mod shop?

Prefer Ft. Lauderdale area, and am looking for a shop that you all have used before to do 5100s and wheels/tires. Prefer to go to someone with actual experience with our trucks that "gets" what we need.

I feel I Need a shop that "gets it"... Most places don't understand shocks and tires.. I suggest pep boys or jiffy lube.

4wd outfitters in Davie was recommended to me. Haven't used them yet, but I looked them up on the internet and a few other people reviewed it positively on other forums.

I prefer hand delivery so I can show you how to check your tire pressure and fluid levels.

Not everybody has the Knowledge, Time, or Tools to put a lift on a truck. He asked a simple question doesn't need smart ass comments

It was a serious question! I saw his post count figured this guy has to be making a "joking around" thread so I posted making sure it wasn't someone playing around, but instead he was serious! He could of posted his tech retard question with a different approach. Sorry for hurting anyone's feelings.

Sorry my inner pbb was coming out on this retarded topic, op and follow up with address bs. If you can't put on a shock and need to go to a shop. That sucks. But there's hope. It's a drop in replacement. You ask a shop of your choice, do you do wheel/tire packages? And.....can you replace shocks? I know your mechanical abilities are lacking, that's cool. I get it. But it's not something custom, crazy, over the top or unheard of in the automotive industry to ask for an upgraded shock and wheel/tire package. :-/

Hahaha, the site is run great it seems. Prompt curb side service. I just thought it was amusing. I think it'll be my new signature block. All these ASSumed things it's Like dealing with a girlfriend/wife or something. Simmer downow.

So back to the OP. You find a mod shop that "gets it" to put on some wheels/tires and shocks? If they don't get it just tell them "it's a jeep thing, you wouldn't understand".
