Suncoast Customs, 5304 Ashton Ct in Sarasota, 941-927-8473.

I don't know much about them but see they have a set of '13 Sahara wheels/tires on craigslist, so I'm guessing they'd be worth a call.

A guy at the barber recommended a place the other day. I stopped in this old corner gas station converted into D&R Automotive. I talked to one of the owners and he is working up a package price for lift and tires. We'll see what they come up with.

I am going to do it myself. I am lining up a supplier for the lift as we speak. I will find a reputable shop to work with me on the tires and wheels. After a month of forums and talking to various shops I determined it just isn't that hard. I save $6-800 in labor and can buy some cool tools and mods with that!! Two shops that have been recommended are D&R on 9th in Sarasota and Diesel off S Tamiami trail. I also talked to the guys at Suncoast custom and they seemed like they could do it, but were a little high on prices. Good luck!!!
