Custom work

Hi Everyone,

I got my 2006 Red Jeep Wrangler last year and now I want to start customizing it.

I have two questions and hopefully you guys can help:

1) Does anyone know anyone local in MA preferrably North Shore that can do a 2" suspension lift?

2) Would it make sense (and can it be done) to switch my manual 5 speed to an automatic?

I use my jeep for plowing and it has been great but my guys have blew thru 2 clutches.


Lynn, MA

Plaistow Auto Sales in Plaistow NH is an offroad shop. Dave will do the lift.
People have done the switch, but its difficult.

I would go to your Jeep dealer with your vin # and find out what gears you are running before I did anything.

Drivers side in plainville, ma
They do tons and tons of jeep lifts, electronics installs, etc.
They're a great group of guys, and really know how to do a good job. They'll even show you some work they've done to their own trucks and jeeps.

Ask for Evan and tell him Brandon sent you, he'll give you a great deal,
