    was looking through the forums but couldnt really find word on any shops near jacksonville that did good work. i know hedgehogs closed and i hear they were overpriced anyway, tryin to avoid 4wheelparts as well, also not hearing good stuff about them. anyway, hope to hear back soon. thanks ahead of time.

    Nice, i dont know too many places since Hedgehog closed down. I do all my work myself. I am sure there are a few small places to have it done at. If u want there are a few of us here in jax that can help u with the bumpers, i know the base can do your wheels and tires for cheap.

    i prefer the fabtech mainly because ive had experience with them before on my last truck and i never had any issues with it. idk what wheels i want yet but i have an idea, something flat black with maybe the super swamper radial TSL in a 35". i want to rhino line my doors from the bottom to the crease in the door about a foot up. i think the flat balck bottom with the dark blue top would look pretty sick.

    Yeah that would look pretty sweet. i have this obsession with everything on my truck being silver i have no idea why. i was looking at mickey thompson classic locks and nitto t/g 35's maybe 33's and i flip everyday between stage one or stage two. i dont want the spacers in the stage one. but the money for a stage two is alot. are you gonna run uca's? i mean you pretty much have to but i diont know what your thinking about doing

    see that right there is another reason i need to find a good shop and why im planing this out so far in advance. im thinking stage 2 but i dont know yet. so much to think about. im wanting a daily driver but i also want to take it out on trails and tear shit up (not break my truck). i got time to research though.

    I need to figure out how I'm gonna install my lift too. I have a buddy whose military and can get me on base, that would probably be easier than doing it in my tiny drive way. No way I can afford to pay to have a shop do the install for me, buying the parts and tires alone is gonna be brutal on my wallet.

    alright so i decided on the fabtech 6" with the dirt logics (if im gonna go big i should do it right) id found wheels i like, cant remember them right now, and as far as tires im lookin at the BFG mud Terrains 35x12.5x17. thats my plan so far. still got some time to iron out the wrinkles and still need to find and talk to a shop but game plan is in motion.
