Lift install in Phoenix area

Can anyone recommend a good shop to get a lift installed on a JK unlimited? I want to order the AEV lift and have it installed. I had a two door JK but never lifted it and am not familiar with the shops around here.

Check out kevins offload. They installed a Clayton 6" lift on my wj last year and I had absolutely no problems. Great group of guys. I definitely think it was worth the drive out from Los Angeles there for it.

-Called Absolute Offroad but never got to talk to anyone, just left a voice mail. Anyone have a good number for them??
-Called Andrew at LetzRoll Offroad
-Called 4 wheeler supply
-Called 4 wheel parts talked to a Nate he told me they cannot install it because they do not sell the lift kit themselves (lol?)

So I'm hoping to hear back from Absolute Offroad and if anyone has any other suggestions please feel free to chime in :P

Thanks, the phone goes straight to vm. Must be busy or something. Like I said, hopefully I will hear back.

This should only be a 1 day thing if I use a shop, correct?

I have personally talked to a few people that had bad experiences at desert fab. I've also heard a few other stories of bad experiences. All in the past two years. I also worked there for a short time with my own bad experience.

My suggestion is Andrew at Letzroll. 4807970469. He has impeccable customer service and stands behind his word all the way. Probably the best pricing too. Or very close to it. Andrew is also your go-to axle guy too. He's an axle god!

Absolute is also a great place and they will also take good care of you. You have Joe's number above.

4wheelerssupply is also good. Talk to Simon or Barry and don't forget to mention the %10 VJC discount (i think I've seen you around there)

Don't ever trust your vehicle with four wheel parts.

LIke opinions, EVERYONE'S GOT ONE.
I have personal experience with Todd over the last two winters.
He has vast experience, welding skills are impeckable and ALL my work has been "under priced" IMO
I would not have recommended him other wise.

Anther vote for Todd. He had rebuilt/regeared both of my axles, sleaved the front axle, all for less then what most places wanted to rebuilt just one of the axles.
