What shop can I trust in Los Angeles for aftermarket Jeep installs?

I'm about to purchase a 13' unlimited.

I know I want a few things already.

1) A 2" cosmetic lift
2) Wheels/Tires

I'm in West L.A. Is there a shop that I can trust near by to be fair with prices and pretty knowledgable?

If you're buying New, why not have it worked into your deal and your payments. I do that for my customers all the time. You could even go with a suspension lift then, so your Jeep will be capable of crawling more than just the mall. And the work will be guaranteed as well.

Well doesn't the dealer charge way more for a lift because they use "Mopar?" - Yeah I don't mind going through the dealer but for a 2" lift I'm reading I can get that done for $500 instead of $2k which is probably what the dealer wants.

You sell new JKU's? Where at? Maybe you can help me.

We'll put any lift you want on. You can get the 3.5" RE Super-Flex Short Arm kit for less than $1,000.00. Not sure what the install would be, but if you haven't bought the Jeep yet, you can have it all included in your purchase. Figure another $2,000.00 for wheels and tires, and you're ready to Wheel.

I work at Moss Bros C/J/D/R in Riverside. We've been around since 1921. There's really not another dealer I'd want to work at. And I only sell cars because I sell Jeeps, and get discounted parts and service. I'm also a Wheeler.

PM me if you have any questions. But if I don't answer right away, it's because I'm headed to bed right now. Or soon anyhow.

Thanks for your interest.

Rob

en1ma, sorry for jacking your thread for a minute to say hi to an old friend. There's a 4WheelParts in Van Nuys that I've heard mixed reviews about. I've also heard mixed reviews about Off-Road Unlimited in Burbank. There's also Four X Doctor in Burbank, that has some positive reviews. You'll hear nothing but praise here for JPi in Yucaipa if you're willing to drive that far to take your Jeep to someone you know you can trust. You can also post up for an install party, and for the price of some pizza and beer, you can get your stuff installed, meet a bunch of great Jeep peeps, and learn a lot about your Jeep in the process.

No worries man. Hijack away. I'd love to meet some more Jeep people once I join the family, and also be educated so I'm not just some city kid with a Jeep that doesn't use it for what it is meant for.

I actually *really* want to learn how to work on some cars. It seems like a Wrangler is a good car to work with as a beginner. Am I right on that?

You live in Burbank and drive all the way out to Yucaipa? I'll be hitting up Big Bear all Winter (hopefully in the Wrangler) so it's close by. I'd love to stop by and get some things worked on.

I'll check out Four X Doctor.

Thanks!

Jeeps are way easier and more fun to work on than most cars. It's like Legos for adults. And BTW, if I don't tell you, someone else will, so it may as well be me.....don't call your Jeep a car. It's a Jeep.

JPi hasn't done any work on my Jeep (I do most of it myself), but I've been out there to visit. Good guys there.

Hey,
I am also in west LA. I have a 2012 wrangler. I did all my upgrades at 4wheelparts in El-Segundo.
I put a 4" lift short arm, 35" tires+wheels, front bumper with winch, regear from 3.21 to 4.88.
I'm very happy with the work and the performance.

I'm also taking delivery soon and would love to hear more reviews if you've got 'em for LA shops. I've heard mixed reviews on 4wheelparts in El Segundo but they are close. Just came across OC Motorsports but afraid they could be expensive because they do a lot of dealer mods. Would also like to do some things myself but with two little guys and a wife already sensitive to my driving, I am leaning toward a pro install for the lift to make sure it is done safe and right

Check out JPI's thread. The other thing is they Jeep with us so if it's bad they gotta hear about it. Don't think they ever had to hear about it yet.

Check out the boys over at Rebel Off Road. They do all my work and have been very happy with their service.

As for the lift and tires. If this is your first jeep, wheel it for awhile. Guys on here are pretty good about letting you know what trails you can and can't go on with stock rigs. Hopefully you are considering the Rubicon as it is the most capable out of the box and will get you further in stock form.

Based on my wheeling experience out here the first mods I would make to a jeep is rock rails. Start off with ACE, nice entry level price, good product and will get you through anything out here without scuffin your purdy new doors. And you can bolt them on yourself, even over the Rubi rails. Both together provide great protection.

Thanks DaK and Gunner - I will look into those shops and the ACE rails.

Yes, first jeep, six years waiting, will be a Rubicon, DD for 3-5 years.
Thinking about a modest 2.5" lift if I even do a lift

Stay clear of the 4Wheel parts guys for service. I had some shady service and dealings with them. Ok to get the parts there but get them installed by someone else. You maybe sorry. Just my opinion.

I use 4wheelparts in Redondo. I do all my work there. They are close by and I am very happy with their service. Ask for Nick the shop manager. few times I had things changed because of carnage on the trails. The work was done, no questions asked and not a penny out of my pocket.
