Quality shop to install lift in Charleston area

Recently order a new unlimited rubicon and would like to install an AEV 2.5 inch lift and i think 35" tires. I am a newbie, kindof (owned a 2006 TJ and did a lot to it myself short of lift), and I debated this quite a bit, also considering a spacer kit and 33" tires instead as a compromise. I considered doing it my self and getting the pro cal module. I know most wheel kits will come with tire pressure sensors and I'm confident I could figure all this stuff out. The installation instructions for the AEV kit are not difficult. The main thing is I would be trying this for the first time on my prized possession and I do not have the tools to accomplish this the "right " way.

I'm hoping to find a good garage to get this done where they will take pride in it being done right.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I have considered buying the parts now and getting an estimate from the dealership for the labor, but not even sure whether they would do that.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like some interest in this thread, but no responses with recommendations.

I guess this means there are a lot of people in the same boat as me who are looking for a quality shop.

Any recommendations or experiences with local shops would be appreciated.

Dude you gotta give it more than an hour for responses! I'd say 4 wheel parts on savannah hwy. good friendly professional staff there and had coworkers get work done there and happy. Prices seem better than Lowcountry 4x4 from what I've heard. No a whole lot of shops around here unfortunately for 4wheel it seems.

What can I say Tara11; I was a little anxious to get an answer.

Thanks for the recommendation!

I don't blame you! I've checked ups 3x today for shipping updates on jeep parts I have coming. On Easter Sunday. Good luck and post pics after!

Hey Cats,

I currently live in Atlanta and am in the process of moving to Mount Pleasant. We have a couple of 4 wheel parts here and don't recommend . Yours is relatively new and may do good work.

I have installed 4 or 5 lift kits in the JKs and will tell you they are not hard, just time consuming. You need basic metric hand tools, a floor jack and a couple of jack stands.

What is your time frame? I should be there full time in about a month or so if you are interested in tackling it. I have the tools, but I'm not sure if I have the space. Do you have a garage?

Let me know.

I'm in no big hurry, actually my jeep wont arrive from factory for about 4-6 weeks. That would be awesome to get some experienced help. I do have a garage, but not all the tools...yet. Let me know when you are in town and I will buy you a beer!

I like the sound of that. What part of Charleston are you in? I'm not very familiar yet but learning. My wife is already there. We rented a townhouse in Mount Pleasant. I love the proximity to the beach for sure! I was in town this past weekend moving stuff, and am planning on coming again this weekend for a couple days.

Wranglin cats.... interesting name! lol.. Theres a huge jeep population here in charleston and a few decent jeep clubs. Guys and Gals are super helpful and will always lend a hand as well as tools. I honestly would stay away from most of the shops in charleston. 4wheel parts is no exception. There is one guy here who is reputable and does great work. He goes by the name lowcountry jeep doctor. Runs the business out of his house and wheels all the time. Iv seen countless jeeps he has built and does an amazing job. If your on facebook then look him up there if not give me a shout on here and I can forward you his phone number.

So whether you want to tackle it yourself or give it to a pro theres a couple options here.

We are about 3.5 hours from Charlton and about 1.5 hours from Atlanta. We specialize in Jeeps and off road vehicles. We would be more than glad to help help out in any way. We have had a couple of customers ship us their jeep and once we are done we ship it back.



Send us a PM, email or a Facebook message. Thanks



Austin
