    I am in the Dallas/Ft Worth Texas area and looking for some recommendations on who to use to install a lift that actually knows what they are doing and have decent prices?

    The kit that will be installed will probably be a Toytec BOSS 3'' coil over lift kit on a 2014 Crewmax

    I will possibly be having them install Ranch Hand front and rear bumpers as well.

    Thanks!

    I used these guys back in 2016 and they were great. Not sure of their pricing these days but it was comparable back then. They even did a BMC for me no problem.

    Tandem Automotive (Toyota 4x4 specialists) in Fort Worth or BAERTRAX in Dallas

    You can't go wrong with either.

    Did you end up getting the coilovers?

    Install them yourself or hire someone?

    I did end up purchasing a 3" coil over lift from @StrmTroop29 @Toytec Lifts. The customer service they provided through the process was awesome.

    I have not had them installed yet as I am possibly going to purchase wheels and tires as well and have them all installed at the same time, hopefully in the next few months.

    I am still debating on who to go with for installation, as I will probably need a BMC also...BAERTRAX is probably the current front runner based on location (I am on the East side of DFW)

    If you are mechanically inclined, swapping out the coilovers is not too difficult.

    I have upgraded the suspension on multiple cars in the past. It was much harder when you have to compress springs, but a preloaded coilover would be a quick swap.

    Honestly, I am not handy enough to take on such a task.... I don’t mind paying a professional to do it.

    understood. Never do something to cars/trucks if you dont fee 100% confident you can complete the task.

    BaerTrax is 100% top notch! My buddy turned me on to them and they did my gear swap to 4:88’s. I won’t go anywhere else now! Whatever you do don’t go to cowboy customs in Arlington, half ass on there best days!

    I went with Fat Lip Customs in Haltom City.

    Their customer service has been top notch so far and I should be getting the truck back today.

    I emailed a couple other places for quotes and the other shops quotes and time it took to respond to the emails were not nearly as good as FLC.

    I filled out the “contact us” form for Baer Trax on their website....never heard anything back.

    To still and try and give them a chance, I sent Baer Trax a IG message a couple days later and after over a week no response from that either.
