Interested in LT fab/install.. around Modesto, CA??

Hello everyone, I'm looking into doing a LT set-up for my 2010 DCSB prerunner and wanted to see if there were any good trust worthy shops that know what works to do the fab work, set me up with the right valving, ect...?? I'm outta Modesto, CA an in no hurry to buy, but thought I might try finding a shop local or close by before heading down south. thanks

There seem to be a lot of "show" truck shops around here, but I haven't heard of any real race shops. Maybe someone else knows of one.

Haha yeah there are way too many lame trucks. I have been slowly just building mine up myself. You might have seen it around town? White, roof rack with lights, front and rear bumpers, recent front long travel

Having lived there for 8 years, pretty confident in saying you're not going to find a good fab shop there. You may find some guys that can weld, and some guys that can bend tube, and some mechanic monkeys, but not any real fabricators that I'm aware of.
I can help you with valving if you want a starting point. The rest is on the fly tuning based on how the truck is handling.
