    sold Tacoma, driving a Ford Raptor now.
    I have had my truck a couple months now and I am ready to get a 3" inch lift installed. Thinking about OME coils/shocks and TC UCAs.

    Im certainly open to recommendations and opinions on this as Im hoping to keep total costs below $2000

    Does anyone have a local shop near Niceville, Destin, FWB, Pcola area that they can recommend to do the work?

    The only shop I am aware of in FWB is Restylers. Im looking for other options for comparison.

    Anyone have any good personal experiences with other local businesses that they would allow to work on their trucks?

    http://www.enhancedoffroad.com/ is another option. I've not worked with them for anything like this but I have heard thru the grapevine that they are a stand up shop.

    If you are interested and feeling a bit crazy- I would be glad to help you install it yourself. The Auto Hobby shop at Corry is pretty good- Full truck lifts and all the tools you need- And for the price of some pizza and beer and the time you spend with the truck on the lift over a weekend- You can do the whole thing yourself.

    Just gotta get an alignment done by a shop you like....

    x2 on doing it yourself. It's really not hard (even easier if you have a truck lift) and you get to know your truck even more! I did my lift with no previous mechanical experience and it took me and a buddy about 8 hours.

    uhh...everything? lol
    If you are interested in a price quote on parts and/or labor, please call Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. It
    is alot easier to give price quotes over the phone than the internet, also keep in mind that you will
    need some sort of rear lift as well. OME sells the Dakar springs, or you could do a separate Add-a-Leaf or
    lift shackles. You should be able to get it all for under 2k installed.

    Thanks,
