Any shops specifically focused on upgrades/mods on Long Island?

Theoretically speaking, if one had a bunch of money to burn and a stock WK, is there a shop on Long Island who are very experienced with jeeps who could take the stock WK and turn it into a "RIG" using the owner's vision as a guide? Theoretically speaking, the owner would not know much about the jeep but would know what he/she liked from other jeeps and what the end result should be.

Any shops on Long Island have this type of accolade or experience?

RMS OFF ROAD - Truck Suspensions, Accessories and 4WD Services

Wish I was a head light on a north bound train

Dude, thank you so much this is exactly what I was looking for. Have you gotten any work done there? Shall I mention where I heard of them from?

Rich does awsome quality work. I would not think twice about rolling out of the shop at RMS and driving cross country with the Jeep after having work done there.

I have never had work done by him, I did buy a highlift jack from him after the truck shop ****ed me.

It was going to be a Bday gift to a friend and the truck shop told me 3 days. well 3 months later they still did not have it and actually yelled at me when I said forget about it.

RMS had it in a day and half. This was years ago before the internet was so big other wise I would have gotten it myself.

But anyway the owner was a good guy and looked like he had a tight shop with some real quality trucks.

Good Luck!

...bump up from the dead

I might be buying a YJ this weekend after an 18 year "Jeep hiatus".

There used to be a store/install shop on RT 110 in Farmingdale.
However, I'm not even sure if it still exist and I forgot the name.

The seller of the YJ has a 4" lift and I'm trying to figure out what he may have paid for the parts & install.
I'm sure he's working that $-amount into the sale price.

Any #'s or websites would be helpful
