There arent really any stores around here, there was some place out west of Joliet that I cant remember its been so long, otherwise the only shop (more install type of shop) is Attitude Performance
http://www.attitudeperformance.com/index1.htm

One of the magazines (Fourwheeler I believe) regularily features his shop doing various install articles.
Ive seen his work and its good. There used to be God Mudders in Alsip but Ive seen their work and to me it was hackish.

Attitude is a joke. Overpriced junk, don't go there.

I've seen a quite a few trucks that Matt has completely ghetto-rigged together. For the price you're paying, you can find someone better to build a truck in their garage.

the one im thinking of was before Cliffs was even around.
Joliet area, maybe a little further west. i remember them holding some sort of mud fest.

unless Attitude had gotten sloppy over the past few years, I dont know what you are talking about. the trucks i had seen in person were neat and professionally done.
but another thing to remember as well, just like Godmudder's, they were show type trucks, so that may be part of the judgement.

Probably. Considering show trucks are completely pointless and useless. They all broke on the crappy little trails we have around here. Shoddy workmanship, they need to have a disclaimer that says "we'll make you look like a douche, but don't try to use this"

Seriously, what a joke. No one around here that I know will use them.
