    I just got 5100s installed at all 4 corners on my Tundra from James. I love them. Great service. Honest and he knows his stuff. I highly recommend him for anything Toyota. If you are looking for someone closer to north county for install and parts...check him out.

    They are the same as everyone else about 150 for the front and 150 for the rear. I bought mine there and it was $550 to install which included the alignment. It might be a little different for Tacomas. I would call him and ask. Tell him that "Tree" referred you and he will help you out. He was great customer service and and a trusted shop. Good luck.

    He might give you a deal. My tundra shocks where more but he gave me the lower price. Most places do it for 150 so ORW doing it for 170 higher. He is trusted so I go with him. You get what you pay for...

    Are u shopping for just the shocks? shocks and install? Just install? Call him and tell him your best offer and if he can do it great. Might not be the cheapest in town...There will be people to low ball you...but I can tell you that his work is very good.

    The truck shop seems to have the lower price on a lot of parts compared to ORW which is a rip off on a large scale of parts. I don't know about their service line so I don't want to speak there but for the most part I'd rather go to the truck shop for most parts before ORW.

    James is good people. He's done work on my truck a couple times. There is also Tony out at express performance center in santee.. Ive dealt with tony for years..He'll give you an honest deal. Either way James run's a good shop up there. You will get an honest deal from either of the 2. Way way way better then ORW or 4wheel parts. If they can make the numbers make sense, they'll do it for you.

    Put it out there for people.. So they dont just get stuck going to ORW or $wheel parts. Not to put those places down.. They charge insane prices for the simplest work.

    I agree with everything you said. These guys are pros. I had my 08 Taco in last week because it was making an electrical whining sound at 1500 rpm. The Toyota guys in Honolulu had the truck for a week and could not figure it out. I got here and took it to James. He gave me a 4Runner to drive and figured the problem in an hour (it was the TRD Cold Air Kit).
    They are installing a new suspension to replace SQUEAKY lift fit I have now. I will use these guys from now on.

    I just got my Kings installed at The Truck Shop.

    Still a great place to get work done. He will likely be doing my Sliders as well when I have the money.

    The Kings are bad ass... If anyone is on the fence about them I say go for it. I would have easily paid retail for them.
