Fairfield county CT lift install

Does anyone recommend a place to have a suspension lift installed Fairfield county CT or even in hudson valley NY ?

The lift I am looking at is
http://www.skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=19628

Any feedback on this lift, I use to have a sky jacker but it seems now Teraflex is the way to go?

Moved from Utah and I cant find anyone who specializes in lifts.

Best,

(2010 JK)

I've heard EVB in danbury does good builds at a decent price, I've never had any work done there, just something i've heard from multiple people

For you the closest places are probably EVB as previously mentioned or SVE in East Haven.

While I have a TJ, not a JK, that lift doesn't look that hard to install. My guess is you could find a few people around who would be willing to help and save yourself some money.

Fairfield Auto & Truck in Fairfield, CT just installed a Rough Country 3.25" lift on my TJ and did an awesome job. The guys there are great!

That would be my choice if I was going to have one installed by someone. Clayton's shop is in waterbury and I'm sure they will do a good job installing their own lifts.

Hello. We are very busy trying to come out with new products and keeping up with daily orders. But we still do an install from time to time. We only install our components, but if you are interested in one of our lift kits, send us an email and I can go over all the details with you.

Either way, goodluck with your JK build.

Adam
Clayton Off Road Inc.

I also live in Norwalk, so you might see our red JK on 37s cruising around once in a while.

Excuse me? Trash evb? I'm not trashing anyone just stating facts...I think $17000 worth of damage is a little more than a bad experiemce

Supercharger they installed was not compatible with the truck, to many bends in the exhaust- way to much back pressure blown transmission and computer

This must be Mike with the Dodge Ram Hemi with the Prochager kit. EVB installed the Prochager to the factory specs for Mikes ram truck. At this time Mike did not want to go for the upgraded tranny because of his budget at this time. A few weeks later he goes to a muffler shop and get "Chrome Side Pipes" He shows up on our door pissed because his truck no longer runs right . We ask EVB to install a custom side bed exit system. He was there for every inch of the install giving his approval. Once the Job was dome we took it for a ride and all was good. High fives to all the guys in the shop. After the party was over Mike ask if could settle up the bill the next day. After a year plus of work and 3 trucks later we guess it would be fine. Well guess what we were wrong . Mike too the truck to some other shop and the both jumped on the bashing wagon and Mike never payed his bill of $1200.00. Some of the best parts are not even are talk about. Stuff like how Mike got in a fight with the other shop owners and the cops are called in . Or the time he called us back for some warranty work and the list goes on and on. As most know the custom car business is small and people do talk. So we try our best to fix problems. Nobody is perfect how ever EVB did no wrong here all we tried to do is to fix some other shop mess . Don't forget there is always two side to a story. You can go on what your friend said rumor are easily spread. Also we can rant and rave for hours but there is no reason too. People are allowed to form opinions about us all we can do is encourage you from your own experiences . Ask around and see what most people think about EVB. If anyone needs more info about this please stop in or PM me. Thanks
