    All,

    I am looking to have a few things installed on my taco, suspension, some skid plates (welding), stuff of this nature and am looking for recommendations of shops in Santa Clarita. There are a lot of lifted trucks up here, so I have to assume there must be some good shops up here as well. If you have worked with any shops that you would recommend, please post up their names, locations, phone numbers, websites, and/or any other information you have of them.

    Thanks in advance.

    Fox 2.0 coilovers, yellow fogs, Peltyfry bed light bar with Rigid Duallys.
    I don't know if they weld, I mainly see installs done by them, but give Big John's in Valencia on Creekside a call. They installed my front coilovers and did the alignment for a good deal.

    Thanks guys, I'll check out Big John's. If that doesn't work out, I will give you a shout Brandon. Thanks again.

    Have you had a bad experience with Big John's? Or have you heard bad things? I would really like to know before going over there. Thanks.

    I do not but, judging from the online website, I get a feeling they are one of those shops that just do basic bolt in installs. They may overcharge you for install since they are a shop, but with Brandon who pretty much built his truck, knows tacomas well, and can work with you on a price better than a shop.
