Maryland, DC, NOVA mods help?

I am working in the DC area on TDY staying in Chevy Chase) and am doing some work to my 2011 JK Rubi. I had a local shop do the install on the lift and was left very dissatisfied. They were not the most helpful group of people and trying to explain to them how to adjust for my bowed rear springs was a nightmare, Still not fixed.

Anyway, I am used to wrenching on my own rig with the help of friends back home in Colorado.

Would anyone within 100 miles be willing to help with some parts I need to install?

1) 4 Control Arms
2) Shocks

Within the next few weeks I will have an exhaust and possibly a front and rear bumper along with winch and on board air.

Jim

If you need any more help in DC i lives there for 30 years and know where to get anything you need, not a real 4x4 friendly town need to head up to Frederick or Hagerstown.

I stole this from another website....


4X4 Shops:
Adrenaline Offroad, Burtonsville (Laurel), Md: Jeff Jurgrau, owner. Great guy, amazing prices, installs available, mild to wild. We've known Jeff for about 10 years. Always supports the local clubs with prizes for holiday parties, special events, etc. Plus, he's a Jeeper and competes in the RCrocs events and is a life-long Big Dogs sponsor.
Welcome to Adrenaline Off Road LLC.

Adventurous 4x4 & Speed, Hagerstown, Md: Randy Wood, owner, Wayne Kendel, co-owner. I haven't had the opportunity to purchase from Randy, but we have wheeled with him. Amazing guy, always helped out at any large event we put on. From Wayne: "The Adventurous 4x4 website is going to be updated over the next few months and will have over 1000 products added to the site."
Adventurous 4x4 & SPEED

Appalachian Offroad, Westminster, Md: Mike Bosley, owner. Again, great guy, does amazing custom work with whatever you bring him: cages, axles, motor/tranny/t-case swap, buggy builds. They do it all and are extremely reasonable.
Appalachian Off Road -

DelMarVa Offroad, Salisbury, Md: Mike Ferrari, owner. Sounds like a broken record, but Mike will do whatever he can to help you out. From custom CNC machining to simple gear installs, as well as nearly any product you can find in a catalogue, DOR can get it for you as well as install it.
Delmarva Offroad

Mid-Atlantic 4x4 and Speed, Glen Burnie, Md Very over-priced, cannot recommend them as I've seen lots of shoddy lift installs from that place. If you need to buy hard parts, (U-bolts, Hubs, etc), they may have them in stock. I'd have to say they are a 'speed' shop first that sells some 4x4 parts.
Mid Atlantic 4x4 & Speed 410-766-2727 MID4x4.com

Steig Brothers, Mt Airy, Md: Josh and Sean Steig, owners, ASE trained Jeep mechanics by day, Jeep mod magicians by night. If it's a jeep and either has an issue, needs maintenance, gear/ lift install, motor swap or a complete restoration, these guys are amazing.
Please PM for number, as I use his personal cell

Trick Trucks Lots of these places around. Used to get my hard parts from the one in Edgewater since a buddy was a manager there. Fairly good selection on tires and wheels, used to have blems and tire deals every once in a while. Haven't been to one since the late 90's, so I can't comment on any current status of the business.
Trick Trucks :: Truck Accessories, Equipment, Parts, Caps

Specific shops:
Perry Hall Power Equipment, Baltimore, Md Used them to cut down some axles tubes and rebuild a driveshaft. Good work, pricey, and it takes a little while to get stuff back. Good work though.
(410) 391-2300

A1 Driveshafts, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. If you broke a driveshaft, need one lengthened, shortened or rebalanced, they'll do it. Great stuff. Annapolis Auto Parts delivers to their shop, so a trip to A1 isn't always necessary.
A-1 Drive Shaft - Driveshafts * Front Wheel Drive Axles * Rack & Pinions

Napa Auto parts Lots around. We get our Warn locking hubs there. Very cheap.

If you are in Northern Virginia join NOVAJeepers, post up in the Wrenching Parties section, give some notice and offer up beer and food, you'll get plenty of help and tools.
