    Now that I have a truck, kinda want to take it down to OBX for our family trip in late August and try my first time out on the sand. Any local members want to join or give advice on best OBX spot to get permit and try driving out on sand in safe spots that aren't super soft or deep?

    We could get some photo's together too.

    I found my lift installer through my local Napa parts store. Just shooting the breeze a little with one of the guys and asked him. Had been in there enough that they recognized me from the electrical work I was doing on my 12v fridge project. It was a good recommendation. The place is a do it all small town muffler/tire/suspension place. They charged me by the hour and it probably would have been cheaper at a place that specializes in doing this kinda work. I’ve been happy with the alignment they did too. Very even tire wear. I went back to them when it was time for tires and they helped me fit a full size spare underneath by hammering the tabs back and even let me compare the fit with hub spacers and without. They’re also doing my five tire rotation free of charge.
    The off-road shops around here didn’t want to install something you brought in. Wanted you to buy from them. Also they wanted to sell you what they thought was best from only wanting to sell me a ready lift at one shop, to pushing Old Man Emu but not competent enough to even give me a quote or explain the options there.
    Good luck! So short answer do some digging and ask someone you trust in the business. Having a trusted tech doing your work is worth it. Hopefully someone can give you a more direct answer lol

    4 Wheel Parts on Glenwood Ave in N. Raleigh did a good job with my lift and shocks. The counter guys are really knowledgeable and the techs seem competent.

    Checking in near Greenville SC. I actually live in Williamston but Greenville is what everyone recognizes. Has anyone been to gulches ORV in Waterloo? I was thinking of checking it out, only about 45 min from me.

    We lived in Seneca, SC before moving to Raleigh a few years ago. The paved and gravel roads in the Highlands / Cashiers, NC area were fun to explore.
