    I have used Tint Zone on Colburn st, behind Midass off Dillingham.
    I used them on past 2 trucks, but haven't done the Taco yet. Patick is owner, sometimes give better price with cash.

    I always use TNT if you plan on keeping the truck.
    Every other shop so far has played the "Different owner" BS when I tried to cover warranty issues.

    Where have folks had suspension/lifts added in the past and what have you paid? My suspension is pretty clapped out from one too many keg deliveries and eyeing the Ironman FCP kit but don't have the space to do my own work anymore.

    Maui Offroad is probably the most expensive place you could go. (they really messed up my friends Ford truck)
    4WP in Waipahu or MJ's in Waipio would be good options.
    Most decent mechanic shops can do suspension work also.
    Labor runs about $180 -$200 per hour

    Aloha, Any recommendations for 1st Gen mechanics?

    The truck is at 178k. I have a coolant leak and would like a trusted opinion on some other maintenance.
