Looking for shop in Tampa FL

Hey gang, Im looking to have some ball joints and possibly new gears put in a 2013 Unlimited. Any suggestions on shops in Tampa FL area? I work for a Honda dealer and they installed the lift but no one wants to touch again. Ive had some issues with my Metalcloak 2.5 dual rate and we don't believe it to be the parts. Also any suggestions on what joints to get? Been looking at Synergy $250 set. Thanks in advance!

If you are willing to come over the bridge there are a few places in Pinellas County.
Jeepsters inc in largo.
Jeff's Jeep Yard in Clearwater
I have never used either but have heard good things about both places.

Thumbs up

Don't know any shops in that area.
When I do my ball joints I'm going with Rare Parts ball joints, cost more then others but are very high quality.

Tampa here....I've had actually an OK experience with 4wheel parts in stalling my Rock Krawler lift and Rock Slide Engineering Slide Steps.

I had a horrible experience with Tampa Off Road...had them install C gussets....did good job on those...sleeve front axle...didnt do all the spot welds...install Warn Zeon winch and they scratched the heck out of it. Had to fight them to fix it for over a month. Quite a few people in the Tampa Jeep Krewe have either warned me or told me of bad experiences with Tampa Off Road.

Thanks man, metalcloak actually reached out to me and said to take it to Tampa off road. I don't have much time off so it's kinda valuable. I just want this truck to drive decent and not wonder so much and steering wheel shake. I'll call around next week and see where I can take it

Adamwest if you want Metal Cloak take your Jeep over to Hoyt 4x4 in St. Pete. They are the real local Metal Cloak dealer and installer.

I shopped Metal cloak and Rock Krawler....both top of the line products.

Thanks mdrums, I called both places and Hoyts took some time with me and says he can check it out Friday. Tampa offroad didn't say much, they seemed busy but he can also check it out this week so Im torn, I live pretty far from both and I will probably Uber back to Riverview after dropping it off.

Stay away from Tampa Off Road....trust me and many other in the local club.

Where in Tampa do you live? I'm just south of Brandon in Apollo Beach.
