Boston Area Resources???

Anyone know of any shops in the Boston, MA area that specialize in, or at least perform, lifts, etc for Wranglers? I am looking to perhaps throw a 2 inch body lift into my YJ and I cannot seem to find any shop that would be willing to do the mod. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Boston Area Resources???

Why not do it yourself and save a boocoo of money (sorry had the urge to use boocoo for some reason [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]). A body lift isn't that difficult to do, just make sure you soak the bolts with penetration fluid for a few days prior and go for it, I think the most you may have to deal with would be a few minor mods up front around the radiator shroud, etc. but there are some people here that have done those and can give more advice, I just hate to see you spend the money on labor, when its not a very difficult task [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: Boston Area Resources???

Well, I am not so sure I feel comfortable doing the modification myself. I am really trying to find a shop that would be willing to lift the Jeep (suspension or body) in order for me to put 31's underneath. I dont see why finding a shop in Boston is so difficult, but everyone I have called is not willing to do it.

Does anyone by chance know if a lightbar and 5" to 6" round lights will fit in a standard garage (approx. 6'6")? All help and suggestions is appreciated. Thanks a ton.

Re: Boston Area Resources???

You might want to check withy JEEPN he's up in your neck 'o the woods and might have some info on the area, as for the lights, someone makes a light bar that folds down to allow entry into parking garages that might work for you, try 4 wheel parts wholesalers, they might carry it or know who does http://www.4wheelparts.com/.

There's a guy in Worcester, Manny Santos, who has a Jeep only shop. He does all kinds of mods. Try looking up "Santos Jeep" or something like that in the phone book. I'll search for his number tonight for you also.

There's a place in Framingham called CHEAP JEEPS. I have heard good and bad about them, though, so beware.

Re: Boston Area Resources???

Maine, Massachsetts, its all close up there right?? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], at least compared to here in Texas. I have to drive 6 hours just to get to a neighboring state, and thats the closest to me!!!. I figured the states up there were just a hop, skip, and a jump from each other....actually I just messed up alright...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Heres a couple:

I have dealt with endangered species and they are great. I have no experience with Elias 4WD but I have heard nothing but good things about them.

And finally, check out the New England wheelers board:
