Sorry I think it's Tnt monster truck in ronkonkomaI do 99% of my own work on my jeep but any regearing I get done by Leo over at Tnt conversions in Bohemia I believe over off of ocean ave. He always has at least 2 trucks in there getting lifts put in.
Way back when we used to do a lot of conversions/lifts etc. Putting 400CID Small blocks with Jeep running gear in Chevy LUV trucks, 6" lifts, all that stuff. There are a lot of off road shops on LI, Used to be a lot more. Many do it for beach running, some for mudding etc. (there are opportunities here but few). I had a 6" lift on my '77 Chevy, did it myself with no issue.A friend had a 4" lift put in her new Jeep at the Truck Shop in Sayville, they did a good jobLmfao an 'offroad company on long island'..
True. But remember, part of that $10,000 a day they are trying to make ( I know, it's ridiculous) is to pay the insane taxes they have to pay.Your going to get hosed on LI ,go else where or do it with friends. Go 4 or 5 hours upstate where people actual work with out trying to make $10,000 a day.
Not every shop will touch a lift on a new vehicle due to liability, especially with all of the computers and systems built in that might be affected.I can't do my own lift... I don't have that skillset (my skills with vehicles stops at electrical). So that's out of the question.
Any truck shop will work on a new truck... lol... who would turn away business because the truck is new *rolls eyes*
Any shop will also work on a truck even if they don't go offroading (they will probably recommend a less expensive lift kit... one without coilovers maybe since they are not going to be used on the pavement for example)
I've stopped at the Truck Shop. nice folks there. I've known about them a while. Someone I work with told me they did a bad job on his brothers trucks... but that's one guy who had an issue. You can get that "one" bad review anywhere you go.
I also stopped at RMS offroad... but he was $2k higher using the same components basically. Truck shop wasn't charging me a lot extra on hardware. I can buy all the components through distribution so what he was charging me, was a fair markup. I think RMS was charging me a huge markup on the parts.
I have to agree, Ive know Leo for a number of years. He is great guy and he has built some very series trucks in his day. Very skilled welder and fabricator as well. He's a fair guy, very honest.I do 99% of my own work on my jeep but any regearing I get done by Leo over at Tnt conversions in Bohemia I believe over off of ocean ave. He always has at least 2 trucks in there getting lifts put in.
