    Hey guys, I am new to the area and am looking for a good trustworthy shop to have mods done at. Where do you guys do most of your custom work (electronics, armor, fab, lifts, mechanical, etc)?

    I've always done 90% of my own work, but depending on where you're at I may able to make some recommendations if you're adamant about having the work done for you by a shop.

    I'd definitely appreciate recommendations. I'd love to be more of a DITY guy but I haven't the tools or experience with it to trust myself on the big stuff. I'm in the Tacoma area. But I am willing to drive a bit to get the right place.

    One of the more major jobs I have on the horizon that I'd like a reliable guy for is a 6" lift.

    You said you were in the Tacoma area? I would just go to 4WP on South Tacoma Way. They install tons of lifts and a lot of local car dealers use them. I have never heard anything bad about that stores work.
