I am starting to look at getting a mild lift for my JKU. Probably just a 2-2.5. However, I am not comfortable doing this on my own and would prefer to have a local shop do the install. Anyone know a shop with a solid track record and located well north of Seattle? I'm in Bellingham and taking the Jeep to Seattle is too far for the install.
Thinking of going with a Metalcloak 2.5 if that makes any difference. Thanks!

There's Olympic 4x4 in Snohomish. From what I've heard, they have a great track record. And it's a little closer to you than Seattle :)

Yeah, I actually had those guys do an ARB locker and new gearing back when I drove a Toyota. They did do good work. I'd really like something even closer, but if that's what it takes...

I would also 2nd Olympic 4x4. There is a place call Bell Offroad in Bellingham, but I don't know anything about them. I think they're fairly new. Could be a place to check out. I've done all the work on my jeep personally including the lift. I live just north of ya in Ferndale.

Thank you. I'll check out Bell too. I see Olympic sells Rubicon Express lifts, but I wonder if they would also install from other manufacturers too?

You might check with your local Les Schwab dealer. They used to install lifts for some of the car dealerships in the area. Also, Dwayne Lane in Everett is a Metal Cloak distributor according to the Metal Cloak web site.

The Dwayne lanes is not a metal cloak dealer I've called and asked, it's all bs. I've worked for Dwayne lanes the whole dealer ship is a joke

Have some local guys help you, learn more about your rig and probably costs a few beers and lunch.

I believe Les schwab install Rough Country only. I installed my lift in my garage in a single day with a couple of buddies. If you need a place and help just pm me and we can do it in my garage. A long arm kit will take longer due to cutting old brackets and welding new ones on.
