    I have searched the past postings but didn't see any real meaningful threads that list places in the DFW area that we can go for services needed whether it be paint shops, powdercoaters, even dealers etc. Positive or negative. I would be happy to combine everyones input into the original post if it would be helpful. Maybe something like this, just an idea.

    Freeman Toyota sucks bad
    Toyota of Fort Worth has been good to me the 2 times I have been there.

    Clark Brothers Paint and Body in Arlington does awesome work.

    Fort Worth Champion Spring near down town has done suspension work on a truck of mine and several of my families. Great work.

    Kenny's Muffler shop in Euless did a great job fixing my truck when the catalytic converter got stolen. Pricey but quality work.

    Good start, I have updated with my experiences as well. Horrible experiences with Toyota of Plano and Freeman Toyota, good experience with Toyota of Fort Worth and Herbs Paint and Body.

    I will update over the weekend with information from feedback in other threads too.

    I just got my spring TSB done at Pat Lobb Toyota and there was no problem at all! They gave me a Rav 4 to play around in while they did the work. They also replaced a faulty hu while it was there, the tech said it went out on him while he was working on the car.
    If the service stays this way I will never go to another dealership.

    I have dealt with Toyota of Dallas and Toyota of Irving in the past.

    I get coupons from Toyota of Dallas all the time for service. Had my brakes replaced and fixed my dash lights there and the big one........when my truck was rear ended, they took really good care of me. Plus I know most those guys. Really cool. Chris King (Body Shop), Jacque and Gerone (internet parts department). +1

    Toyota of Irving, did my TSB there at the time they just replaced my springs but didn't get the new 4 leaf pack. They installed my Toytec lift kit.....come to think of it they kept my u-bolts and there parts department is more expensive than Toyota of Dallas for some reason. -1

    Justin from Roctek out of Grapevine......does a really great job on fabing up the 05+ & FJ front and rear bumpers, sliders, general stuff, etc.

    ^It's all very clear now. I thought I had seen your tuck advertised but never bothered to ask where you bought it.......it already had the lift kit installed. You just answered what I had suspected all along.........:cool:

    06Bluedblsport,

    Where are you at in Frisco? I was there last month but had seen a couple of modified tacomas only. One was full of chrome in Plano and a 6" lifted at 121 in Colony.

    Btw, I live in Frisco but never dealt with Toyota of Plano, so I can't comment.

    Toyota of Plano took great care of me when I took my truck in for body work, but they kept effing me around with a the rear spring tsb.

    Patt Lobb I've had mostly good encounters with, and actually took care of the spring tsb w/o me mentioning it. I'll be using them until further notice.

    Jim Mcnatt Toyota in Denton took care of a dead battery for me :D
