Default Shop or private good wrench to install a lift kit around Pinckney?

I am considering replacing my short arm lift with a Teraflex long arm 4" lift, I am looking for a shop or a good mechanic to install the kit, also what do you think I should expect to pay to have it installed. I would like to find someone fairly close to home (Pinckney)
Thanks!

That lift is not for the faint of heart to install. Unlimited Offroad is in Fenton, they are well versed with Tereflex and will probably be your best option.

I have called Unlimited Offroad in Fenton to find out about how much it would be for a lift and gears. It is two days later and I still don't have an answer. I have talked to their representative for the past two days and he is utterly clueless. I don't know if it his first week on the job, but he is not giving me the feeling that they know what they are doing.

You can check with my neighbor in Gregory. He has done some really nice work.

probably worth your drive to Jeepers Creepers or Ironman Offroad.

Or BigB. He's a good option too.

Sounds like they got back to you and took care of any questions you had.
