    this is for all our jersey guys. this shop was the best for 4wd stuff. he wasnt a hack like other shops here in north jersey(i wont mention any names). i stopped by there today to order some crap and there was a sign on the door. i almost feel like i lost a family member.i'v been dealing with ralph for 15 years. he kept saying he was going to retire but never thought he would do it. he has been in biz for 32 years.
    there wasnt a truck that wasnt lifted in the 70s or 80s that wasnt done by ralph.1000s of trucks easily.

    That does suck, but it's great that people remember him and his work so fondly! It's a dying breed of businessman where people actually miss them when they're gone.

    I know an incredible fabricator in Spotswood if folks are looking to have work done.

    :D

    I'm younger than Ralph,tho.:D

    Ralph did a lot of work on a new '89 Eddie Bauer Bronco II I bought.
    Yeah,yeah I know...a bronco II:)
    Push Bar,Rancho Steering Stabilizer,shocks etc...
    Long time ago.
    He balanced the tires I bought for the Tacoma a couple of months ago.He said he was thinking about retiring.
    He was the best.

    I just remembered that I bought my Undercover from him.

    Hate to try and revive this thread, but its truly a shame. I took my old '01 Tacoma to him back in 2007-2008. Im finally back into the truck mods with my new(er) '06 Tacoma, do you NY/NJ guys recommend anywhere else local? Ive been out of the loop for a few years and I am in upstate NY now but cant really find any good shops around here. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
