Good place for lift install in Gainesville, FL?

Hey guys, I just moved down to Gainesville, FL for college. I just got a lift for my 2012 jk and I am looking for a good, reliable place to do the install for me either in Gainesville or relatively close. I do not have the time, tools, nor knowledge on how to install so please refrain from the "just do it yourself and save the money" comments.

I am really just looking for a place that is well known and does dependable work. I guess driving 30-40 miles is worth it if the place does good work, but I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction of a place in town. Thanks for the input in advance guys!

Patrick at DCC Customs does great work. He has a Facebook page. He does work out of Orlando and Tampa. Not sure if he goes up by you though. Here is the website http://dcccustoms.wix.com/dccusa

True that.

Might want to ask in the regional section.

Trouble that you may find is the 4x4 shops tend to have a "line of products they use". What ever you bought may not be what they know or are willing to warranty. You see not all lifts are equal at all. the taller the more complex and that "needs" list can grow. Even though it may seem a complete kit.

Picking a lift is harder than the install in most cases.

You may want to hit up some local Jeep clubs for advice on where to go or maybe they'll have someone who could install it for you that knows what their doing for cheap. I think there's Ocala JC and perhaps Mid-FL Jeep club. I'd check their websites for some contact info or FB pages. Just a thought.

Anything 3.5" or less is relatively easy to install (although probably not so much for a college student living in dorms or an apartment). Depending on the lift, a couple cases of beer will probably get a couple guys from the local Jeep club to install it (just make sure that beer follows the install ).
