    I'm looking for a reputable shop in San Jose Area that can install a lift for me. I came across http://bossoffroad.com/ has anyone had any experience with them?

    Thanks

    Toy Connection in Santa Clara. Their Mechanic worked for Capital Toyota for 22 years, and is a stand up guy. They're going to Rubicon this weekend though so look them up on Monday.

    Jeff (The owner) will give you a good price on all work done, and he stands behind it 100%.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    Yerp, Toy Connection is a good place.


    or bring it to one of the local mod days..lot of knowledgeable guys there who can help install a lift. I personally know alot more about lowering trucks then lifting. Working on the lifting aspect.


    Either way goodluck and post some pictures up after you decide what to do and have it done :cool:

    If you already have the lift purchased look for the mod day thread that is happening this weekend. They might have enough time to put on your lift, and all you'll have to pay for is some beer and tips :).

    Unfortunately i don't have the lift yet.

    But i did speak to a guy from BAMF on the phone today and told me about the mod day. I may swing by just to see all the action but i wont stay long.

    Maybe next time.

    Those are easy peasy.

    Too bad local shops didn't stock em..if you had the funds, pick em up.
    I'd help you do it at mod day!

    AAL is harder then the Bilsteins probably lol.

    :cool:

    Yeah I'm down if it's cool with you guys. I won't be doing any mods though. Just trying to see some mods and maybe hand a wrench or two. Lol
