Looking for installer for a 2" lift kit in Northern NJ
 
I'm about to put in my 2" Mopar lift, and wanted to avoid the dealer for cost reasons and also wanted to give a local shop some business.

I know there is OK4WD down south, however, that would be completely out of the way.
I know there was a place on Route 17 South, called Kryptonite or something like that, but I recall seeing posts where people were not very happy with their service.
Can anyone help a newb out?

Just had my jeep lifted by the guys at The 4x4 Place. There knowledge and work was exceptional. Pricing was very very reasonable. Could not be happier. Will def go back for any future mods or repairs.

your driveway wont work? DIY man

but if you want to take it to a shop the4x4place is the best in the area. Kriptonite is a joke

thanks...
i'm like 5 min away and I always see nicely worked on jeeps there. I just had no idea if people there worked on Jeeps or just drove them...
any idea if they would be able to put in gears?

we used to have a 4x4 specialist shop in wallington, i think they moved, i know they did lifted jeeps and what not.

Gryde717 10-02-2011 11:20 PM

Just wondering where you all decided to go and what you thought of the service

Jerseyjk07 10-29-2011 12:38 AM

Do most work myself it's easy. Just buy some pizza and bev and few guys get together and do installs, you learn more about your own rig and how simple this is instead of paying a shop to do it for you.

I am in the same NJ area. Did you ever settle on an installer?

Really?? thanks for pointing that out and taking the time to calculate the date difference. One problem, it wasn't relevent.

Wow, really

I agree on Total Performance. Chris does excellent work!! Total Performance is the way to go in northern NJ.

I know a guy that recently had work done at the 'The 4x4 Place'.

He was quoted one price and when he got the final bill it was 'thousands' more than the estimate. Additionally the work completed was very poorly done.

I think he's going to the Better Business Bureau.

I wouldn't let them touch my truck!!!

It may not be north Jersey but No Excuses Inc. (Jack) in New Egypt is THE Jeep guru. I've been using him for years and, besides being an overall nice guy, he carries more info about Jeeps in his head than some websites!

NOLASaint 02-14-2015 12:58 PM

Has anyone use 402 Motors?

It looks like they've been doing some interesting custom work with the JK8 kits. I'm not planning anything like that but would like to get off the stock suspension.

Duhboy 02-21-2015 07:49 PM

One of my buddies is a mechanic in wanaque. While he doesn't specialize in only 4x4 stuff he works on my jeep all the time. Lifts,gears,axles. He does it all at a really fair price. Pm me if u r interested in his contact info.

Glad I stumbled upon this. Going to give Total Performance a call. I've just ordered a bumper and am awaiting wheels and lift kit. Ive seen several positive comments about them on this forum.

Red Sector,

Id give Total Performance. Also try calling Jason at Autocouture Motoring in Fair Lawn. They installed my AEV lift and had cheaper labor. They are big with BMW performance but also do some 4X4 stuff. Great guys over there.

Good luck with your build.

Mike - thanks. I think you may be the same person I met at the Cars & Caffe meet over in Mahwah a few weeks back with the lifted black JK? My buddy and I stopped and asked you about your rig and if I'm not mistaken you said AutoCouture did yours.....rings a bell now. I stopped at Total Performance last week and Chris was out on vacation so I'll be going back this week to discuss wheels and lift. Leaning towards a 2.5 AEV. Thanks man

Red Sector,

That was me. Chris at Total Performance installed my bumpers and wired up my Spod. I love my AEV setup. Hopefully Ill see you at some more Cars and Coffee events in the jeep so I don't feel so left out. Good luck with your build though.

I got my AEV 2.5" done at radical motor sports on rt 17 in Ramsey -- I've been there multiple times for my tires, lift, lights etc -- going back there Monday to get a new bumper put on

Recommendation came from someone on this board and I've had great service with them every time.
