Reputable/affordable shop in D/FW area?

I just ordered the 3" spacer lift from Toytec, but don't have the tools to install it myself. Anybody know of a shop in the area that I can trust to install the lift?

I am not familiar with the area as far as shops go but I just installed mine the other day without ever having worked on a Tacoma. You would need some metric sockets up to 22 mm and you can borrow the spring compressor from autozone are a parts house mine cost me $43 and when you bring it back you get your money. You only need the compressor if you replace the springs or purchased the spacer that goes on top of the spring. You and a buddy could get it done in a matter of an afternoon. The shops will want to charge you atlest 400 to install the lift. Maybe you take the parts off and pay a shop to compress the springs and put on the spacer or new coils. Just a thought. Good luck sorry I couldn't help.

I've never installed a lift, but I thought you were supposed to get an alignment afterwards.

You sure are. But most of the time after installing a lift we end up putting new rims and tires on so I would just wait to do it when you put on the new tires since your vehicle needs to be aligned anyway. Driving it without it being alined will only wear out your tires prematurely. Not a big deal if you are going to be changing them out. I wouldn't take any 1000 mile trips but for work and back or around town it should be fine. Thats what I'm doing with mine at the moment.
