    Greetings to everyone thats viewing this thread. Just a local college student & future nurse who has been working on various members rigs in terms of lift installs and coil swap services. I've been meaning to make this thread for quite some time but i guess its never to late to make it.

    This is just my part time gig that keeps me busy when im not studying.

    DM if you have any inquires on info or services. Will be posting some of the recent rigs ive just worked on below.

    Cheers

    I just had some great work done by Nate this morning. It took just over an hour to pull out the coilovers and adjust them for a slightly lower ride height (at a good price point as well). It really helps that he has the right spring compressor instead of that junk that's only designed for a MacPerhson strut. Nate has a great attitude and has a lot of dedication for what he does and I would highly recommend him to others for working on their trucks.

    Quick install for a client, finished off his icon setup by matching the fronts with these rear 2.5 shocks. IMG_7887.jpg IMG_7871.jpg

    I just wanted to say it was nice meeting @Bot_Chu Super awesome guy and very knowledgeable.

    He swapped my king coils from 600 to 700 and replaced my leaf springs to Dakar mediums.

    I highly recommend him and I’ll be seeing him again. Thank you again bro!

    Once again, thank you for stoppy by Jimmy! Was a pleasure dialing in the rig. Looking foward to the next mods that will be coming soon :thumbsup:

    Here are some photos of the rig. Did a Coil swap and installed a set of OME Dakars.
