Jerry Bransford If you can make it up to the Escondido ORW location, that's where I would go. I have learned to trust their store manager Wally over many years to do the right thing if anything ever goes wrong.

For what type of work?

khende Jeep Hospital in Vista, Scott put my new motor for me and the quality of the install is very good. Prices are very resonable.

JoelCruz Not in north county, but in Santee. Socal truck accessories

X2, I feel bad for not suggesting Blaine earlier.

Jerry Bransford Another shop I would avoid in the SD area is MIT in El Cajon. Their quality is highly variable and they don't always know as much about what you're asking about as they claim to know. The owner's wife is a know-it-all who doesn't know jack beyond the basics & tries to field a lot of the initial inquiries in the front office. ORW Escondido/Wally gets my vote too... but if you can drive out to Yucaipa, Stan at JPI will take very good care of you.

bullcrew Pro gear (mark) has done my stuff for over 15 years...has good prices and is know in the drag industry, wheeling, off road truck racing and NASCAR groups...he is a really cool guy.
Border parts I've bought from for my old off road race truck does good work and has good prices.
Orw Balboa talk to Jared tell him travis told you to see what he can do...good guy we went wheeling this weekend, he is definently a good connection.
Been buying from orw for 16+ years Howard and the guys have always been fair and taken care of me...

Agreed with "avoid 4 wheel parts" wouldn't go there if I needed too....

Aside of that I do all my own stuff including most of my fab, so I'm not normally one to recommend anyone I prefer my work...but those I listed I trust....


Went to temecula orw a couple years ago and won't go back to that one....I'll keep my business with Balboa first and Escondido second (Wally is good people there)

brokenujoint Hey, Im in SD near Qualcomm. If you havent installed your Currie lift yet I can help you and save you a crap load of money. It's not a hard thing to do at all. Just get an alignment when your done. Basic tools and a floor jack is all you need. Even have a garage if you need one.

jbolty Progear in Kerney Mesa is the best place I've found for gears locally. Equally good and in business forever is Border Parts in Spring Valley. Both do good work and are square dealers.

My experience with all the other offroad shops has been mixed at best.

Except for the gears and lockers the rest is all pretty easy to do in the driveway.

87octane One thing I haven't personally seen from another Jeep shop besides "JPI" is free trail side service. I have wheeled with Stan 2 times and both times he was getting his hands dirty helping jeeps get back on the trail. One was a roll over and the other a broken front axle.
You probably won't see any free trail side service as part of your work order, but it does give a little insight on what kind of people you would be dealing with. This is one of the many reasons I would make the drive from S.D.

Gunner I drive 180 miles round trip to have Stan "JPi" work on my jeep. No comebacks and always on budget and on time.

I'm not opposed to a little driving if the job is done right and for a competitive price.

cplwillow I would stay away from the 4 Wheel Parts in San Marcos. They did my lift for me while I was deployed. The manger told my wife it would be around 600 do install a 4 inch lift, mount balance 5 tires and then align it. She went to pick it up and the guy behind the counter tried to charge her 945. Of course the manager was no where to be found and it took me going down there when I got home and jumping on the desk before they would admit they ripped my wife off.

khende I used MIT to upgrade my axles. The really know what they are doing and their work is guaranteed. Thier prices can be on the highside but still competative.
11-11-2012 10:03 AM
JKRONNIE ORW! They just installed long arm and gears on my rig. Highly recommend. Go see Jason(El Cajon) , he will hook you up! Stay away from 4wheel parts, they tried to sell me all the crap their company owns rather than sell me whats best for me.

He is good guy and does a quality job for less. He also warranties his work for 30 days or 500 miles which ever you prefer.

If you are not set on a local shop check out Jeep Performance Inc.
Can't go wrong with Scott great work @ a fair price, he just installed my gears,lockers and curirie control arms.

I have yet to find something I didn't like about it. I am not a seasoned veteran jeeper so I don't have experience with any other suspension besides stock.

Besides all the obvious things that makes Currie a great choice, what still amazes me is how quite it is. I have heard some jeeps sound like an old mattress at the hooker hotel.

I did tons of research before I purchased and still have not found any complaints from owners.

I need lots done, but I suppose it will happen in a few stages:

Stage1 - SYE kit + adjustable rear control arms
Stage2 - Regear + lockers
Stage3 - Replace budget lift with something better (RE or Currie)

I'm most eager to get this SYE kit done since i've already go the 4in lift on there.
