    Hey guys looking for a reputable place to get my gears done in the high desert, I just bought on the group buy. I just called a place I got my wheels at and they want $500 for a 2WD?!?!??! everyone was saying 100-250max for just the install! Im in Victorville and willing to drive an hour or so to save $250+

    Thanks Chris

    well there may be a slight possibility ill head that way for work purposes. I'm really going to try to get this taken care of locally, although victorville isn't exactly a great business place.

    Hey Chris-

    You should check out Yotamasters in Corona. They're a very reputable Toyota shop. If they can't help you I'm sure they can recommend another shop.
