    Hey guys,

    I have been shopping for a few weeks for a "one stop shop" for a few things i would like to get done with my truck(lift, wheels, tires, lights, tow hitch and so on). But everywhere I have stopped in seems either sleezy or not able to do what I am looking for.

    I live in south jersey(gloucester,burlington,camden, salem counties are all cool).

    Wanted to see if any members could reccommend a good place to start my project. im down to keep it in the family.lol

    Thanks in advance guys.

    thanks for the tip I will check it out, i am familiar with the area and around that way every few weekends. Do you know if they commonly go above and beyond the standard suspension?

    I am looking for someone who possibly specialize's in this area so it is second nature to them, a little bit of "wham bam tango down" action..... if that makes sense.?.


    btw pimp ass truck and build.... we should hang out some time.lol

    IMO if your going to wheel your best bet is to have one of the local SNJ guys help you put a lift on. That way you know what needs to be fixed should you break something. I'm not sure how mechanically inclined you are, but a lift for these trucks is pretty easy in itself. Not only will you save hundreds of dollars, but having experienced people help out IMO is much better then going to a 4x shop. I have heard way to many issues with shops screwing up peoples trucks (even the experienced ones).

    I would offer myself but my table is full at this time. Feel free to PM me with any questions and maybe I can help you out or refer you to some of the pros.
