Best SoCal shop for installing lift?

Im looking to get a lift installed (not quite sure what setup but max 3" lift) and was wondering if anyone had suggestions of what shop might do the best work. Im in Newport Beach area of Orange County, but not opposed to going farther into LA or SD. From every place ive looked at Yelp reviews, they all seem to suck around my area so wanted to reach out to other SoCal folk and see what they recommend. Thanks!

MOD days are good times for , well doing MODS but usually dont involve lifts, although down here in San Diego we have a few members that competently do lift installs for "no cost" to "very little cost" (I used to do them for free until i realized I gotta eat too) but check with local guys first for suggestions & if you can't get anywhere contact some of us in SD...

Check out Rebel Offroad in Lake Forest. A few of my autoshop friends from high school are their installers, and they are very knowledgeable with Toyota trucks. They work with a lot of Jeep guys, but just a lift install is pretty straight forward.

5-Stars on their Yelp Page! http://www.yelp.com/biz/rebel-off-road-lake-forest-2

Many of the LT and Mid travel guys in San Diego go there for installs and such.

I can do it as well, but not super close to you, but probably worth the drive, been working on Toyotas longer than a lot of you guys have been alive, lol!

PM me if you wanna try and figure something out if your willing to drive a little extra...we can also go over different option based on your use and budget.

Awesome thanks for all the responses guys! I will reach out to you, seems like a better way to go with Tacomaworld breathen. I'd rather do something like this with a few of you, learn and get my hands dirty, and know that things were done with care. PM's coming, thanks again.

Smart choice, you save tons of money, get yourself experience, and get to know some of the guys.
