Lifts in northern va.

Whats up guys, im in the Fairfax area, and im wondering if there is any reputable shops that do lifts (im getting the OME kit) in the area? Also, how much would installation run about? Its gonna be the OME lift and TC UCAs.

1K? I don't live in that area, but i wouldn't pay more than $400 on a OME install.

call High Tech Auto and Truck, they are located in Chantilly and although you are looking at roughtly 400 for install and all that they are the ONLY shop in the area i have found that even knows what OME is. every other shop i called didnt know what OME was. they have a lot of pictures on their website of trucks they have lifted. probally will take my truck to have them install my lift as well

Who quoted you at 1000? Ive never used any of the shops but i hear American Spray Liners in Warrenton is good .

Also about Badd Boyz in Woodbridge I had an appointment to get a lift installed there and they canceled and rescheduled it like three times. I understand things come up but they didn't tell me until I was already there to drop the truck off. I'll never go there again.

there is a place that is called quality tire next to potomac mills, i was quoted like 350 for a spacer in the front and aal in the back for my truck , my friends jeep was the same price, i dont think it would be much more maybe 400-450 since you would need a spring compressor and also the UCA's

Thanks for all the help guys..

High Tech Auto and Truck was actually the place that quoted me $1k, and they didnt seem to know what OME was so i guess ill have to look elsewhere.

Ive noted the other places some of you liste, much appreciated

Have you gotten a price estimate from them before? I sent them an email with he OME kit from toytec and the TC UCAs and they put me on hold for a bout 5 minutes before coming back and telling me it would be near/over $1k including tax.

a buddy of mine had about the same experience with high tech. Badd Boys i have never liked but they have been lifting trucks for a very long time. my buddy took his all the way to richmond and had davis offroad do the work. he was very pleased with there work. there is a place called trick trucks in fairfax near 28 and 50 but im not sure the calibur of work.

they told me about $400 for the install, but i dont have the UCAs, just the OME kit from toytec. i had talked to...Bobby and he knew what OME was and about the kit maybe not everyone that works there does? maybe the UCAs makes the difference? idk. i need my lift installed as well so when you find a good place let us know from what i found from calling local shops, most places charge by the hour of labor, i was quoted from another shop in the area anywhere from 400-700.

perks of living in northern va, everything is overpriced and everyone thinks their time is worth twice as much as it is. try calling the places suggested above that are a little further away from NOVA. there's a small chain (11 locations) called trick trucks in va, md, wv, and de. they are very mall-crawler oriented. some of the locations can mount tires, wheels, truck caps, and that's all, but others know more are worth checking out.
check out the one in edgewater MD, near annapolis, they do more suspension work than the others i've been to.

Yea, there is a trick trucks close to me, ima give them a call tomorrow to see whats up.

$400 for the install at High Tech sounds good, i really dont think adding UCAs would increase it by 500. (100-150 for the alignment they said) I might give them a call again tomorrow to see whats up, i heard they were pricey but $1k, give me a break..

I also called a place out in warrenton that does powder coating but they can also do lifts, the guy quoted me around $350, but that was just a base without any details of the lift kit.

I have a few more places to ask around at tomorrow, hopefully ill find a reputable place with a decent price.

A mod day would be clutch, the only thing is im leaving to go back to school in 2 weeks..

I may end up having to contact the guy in central Va, i still have to make a couple calls this morning.

I was just quoted 425 for the install, i dont think that includes an alignment, which isnt bad, i just dont know the quality the install would be..

Where you go to school at? If you're close just come home for a weekend and host a mod day. When I put my lift on a bunch of us just got together at a members place in stafford and put a couple lifts on.

Or just try to get something set up before you head back. I've got some LR UCA's ready to put on was hoping to get that done the week after New Years.
