Good DFW mod shop???
 
Hey, y'all! I have a 2012 2-dr Wrangler Sport that I'm about to get a lift put on. I'm looking for a good shop to take it to to get it all done. I've thought about taking it to the dealer but they're (of course) kinda pricey. I've heard a lot of good about Mike's Off-Road so I'll definitely be headin over there to talk to them before I get anything done. Does anyone know of any other GOOD and RELIABLE and CHEAP shops who can do my lift?? Thanks!

GOOD, RELIABLE OR CHEAP? PICK ANY 2... LOL

I used Mike about 25 years ago when I had my 1983 CJ-7. That's how long he has been in business. Very busy though?

Just getting back into this, but here is what I'm looking at or doing it myself?

Mike's Off - Road
6440 Airport Freeway
Haltom City, TX 76117
Owner: Mike (of course) 817-834-4900
Ask for Woody as I have met him and he knows his stuff.

MK's Customs
4243 Road to the Mall #B
North Richland Hills, TX 76180
Owner: Kylee Peterson 817-933-3039

Rock & Roll OffRoad
6920 NE Loop 820
North Richland Hills, TX 76180
Jared Pugh 817-765-8774

I do not know about the service, price or overall satisfaction with any of the above mentioned. Just a starting point. I will say never use 4 Wheel Parts. Good work, but very bad accounting regarding credit card over billing.

That's for another day.

Good luck,

I'd looove to be able to find all three :/ Haha, well I guess I'm looking at the right places because those are the exact three places I was looking at. Haha. Okay, thanks. I'm beginning to feel like there aren't any other shops in DFW.

Yeap, that's all I know about?

Except I'm going to get with the Ol' Tuckers Texico owner, because he closed the doors and it was the last full service station I know of. They have 2 bays inside. 2 lifts, one inside and one outside. I've seen his boys working down there on Saturdays lately and I figure I might rent it for a bit? Who knows?

:wavey:

The other big ones in the area would be Baertrax or Tribe4x4, however they aren't "cheap".

I've been known to wrench on a JK or two. :crash:

^ this. I'll add that calling Scott at Diamond Off Road would be worth your time as well.

Tribe4x4 is a great place; Adam does awesome work. I wouldn't consider the work he did for me that costly, either, but I can only speak from my personal experience. I purchased all the parts myself from other vendors and brought them to his shop in Ft. Worth.

I second that. Scott is as honest as they come, and he definitely knows what he's doing. Scott won't try to sell you on anything you don't need.
