I didn't see much discussion regarding where to mods in Georgia.. I order a 2013 Jku Sahara and plan on getting maybe a 2-3 inch lift, 35/12.5/20 tires/wheels. I've visited Fortec in Roswell twice and got an estimate however I don't have a basis to compare prices and quality of service.
I solicit any comments or suggestions you may have. Also would like to here personal experiences as well. Any feedback on the attached estimate would be appreciated as well
There are a couple of 4Wheel Parts locations - one in Marietta and one in Norcross. For comparison, you can go to their website and build a similar package to what Fortec priced for you: Truck Parts & Jeep Parts - Lift Kits, Winches, Tonneau Covers, Tires, Wheels, Bumpers, Performance. If you call them, they can give you labor quotes over the phone for mounting, balancing, lift installation, etc. FWIW I was quoted 3 hours @ $95 an hour to install a 2" budget boost a few weeks back. I had my last set of tires, wheels and shocks installed at the Marietta store and was happy with the service.
Try Spicer Automotive and 4-wheel drive in Rock Spring, Ga if I'm not mistaken of the location. They do stuff right, just a little on the expensive side. If I have anything else done to mine, that's where I'm taking it.
SBC in Gainesville Georgia is probably the best fabricator in our area. He does it all from mild builds to over the top custom work. Scott the owner is the guy you deal with and the guy who does the installation. Not the highest volume shop in Atlanta, but probably the highest quality and customer satisfaction. Even Albert Boswell from 4 Wheel Parts had his custom TJ built by Scott.
Just wanna follow up to the JeepHut a few posts above-- they do installs and parts. My wife had them lift and install new wheels/tires for her 2013 Wrangler at the beginning of the month. I can't recommend them highly enough-- great folks and excellent pricing.
I used Jeep Hut for my lift. They were great work with. They are a Jeep Fest sponser. I thought they were very reasonable. I too did not have a good experience with SORS. They put a hole in my cv boot and wouldn't fix. Their solution was the truck was under warranty and to have the dealership fix it. Then I gave them one more chance. They said they would match 4WD lift and installation but they didn't do everything 4wd included and gave me grief for even asking. They might have changed but they will never get my business again.
Also had good luck with Fortec in Roswell, Ga. They did work for Nalley and I bought one of the Jeeps. The bumper was fading out and they replaced it free, no questions asked.
