need a jeep shop

I just bought a 2012 JK 4dr Sahara, and wanna get some mods done. Looking for a good Jeep shop or 4wd shop that can install a Skyjacker 3" lift, 35's and rims, front/rear bumpers, etc.

I'm not mechanically inclined at all, plus I travel a lot.

There's a place called Kerstner's in Appleton, but I went to see him the other day and he seems intent on wanting to sell me parts from his vendors that I can buy much cheaper myself.

I don't mind going out of my way to find a shop that I can trust to do good work. Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay...it's all good.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check out mooses 4x4 in Hartford Wisconsin, they have been around for awhile and I never had any issues from them.

Hi Kb,

I'm also in Appleton, and FWIW I have done all these things that you want to do to your JK, to my 04 TJ. And have the tools to do so. I can understand having the kit done professionally for warranty purposes and such, but no reason to pay shop prices to someone to bolt on a bumper.

Yeah, Kerstners kind of hit and miss. Sometimes he's a really cool guy, other times, well... A good resource to have though when your jeeps in peices and you dont have time to wait for UPS!

I'm just one fellow, friendly jeeper offering a helping hand. We're all in this together after all. If you're interested, drop me a PM.

BTW I could probably get that kit done with whats in my tool bag that I take on wheeling trips. Just sayin.

Matt

Moose's kinda has a monopoly down here on the west of Milwaukee. It seems the prices and attitude reflects it. Maybe it IS all we have out here. thoughts?

I just had mooses put on my 3" Zone lift. I have no complaints. Labor costs were not to shabby either. They actually saw that my Axle seal was leaking and told me about it. I should get my jeep back from the dealer today, gotta love it when the dealer has to pay. The rest, bumpers and tires/wheels, I am planning on doing myself.

Unfortunatly the dealer still has it. They had to remove the differential to remove the seal. Of course when they did this they broke a clip. Well, the parts department in Minnisota did not have the part. I am suppose to get it back tomorrow. They did give me a free rental car, but somehow a Chevy Impala does not compare to my Rubicon.

If you were asking about how long mooses had the jeep, they had it over night because they had problems with a jeep that got there before me. Otherwise they would of had it done in one day.
