Getting lift installed on Long Island

Recently traded in my 2012 Challenger RT for a WK2 and am looking to get the RRO 2.5 lift installed.

I come from the bolt on performance world so this isn't something I have the resources or confidence to do.

Any shops out in Suffolk County you guys can recommend? Anyone on the Island have this lift?

Thanks!

I use Evan, who is located in Bayshore. His number is 516-384-5349. I have been dealing with him for years and have never been let down; he's honest, won't do work that isn't necessary, has a ton of experience, is a member of Long Island Offroad (so he walks the talk, too) and is fairy priced...in addition to putting two of my lifts on (TJ and JK), he has even custom welded detachable stairs for my JK.
While I'm sure that there are other good mechanics on LI, I will never use anyone but him.
Give him a call when you get the chance and you won't be disappointed.
Hope it helps and good luck!

NYWK266, any luck with the lift? Have been toying with the idea for about 6 months just haven't pulled the trigger.

X's 2 on Evan. I have known him for almost 20 yrs. One of the most honest people I know. He knows what he is doing.

Another option is RMS Off Road in Bohemia. Rich is also a great guy and builds some big trucks. He does great work too.

Rich was nice but he wanted WAY too much money for the install. I also wasn't too interested in the products he carried bds and skyjacker. A lot of people seem to be happy with him though.

I ended up installing an AEV 2.5" in my garage with a buddy over a few nites.
