Where to take Truck for work?

Guys,
My garage is not going to be finished before I need to lift this truck.. Anyone have experience with a shop around DFW that is decent and reliable.


I want 35's maybe 37's kumho's probably. I just need some advice on where to take it to get it done. The money is burning a hole in my pocket

Avoid 4 Wheel Parts, the FW one isnt bad but the rest are a bunch of rip off artists.
Mike's off road is good but expensive.
Truck Toys in Arlington is high but not as high as Mikes and will negotiate with you.

There are a TON of places in the metro plex, once you find one do a google search on the name, sometimes threads from forums pop up and shed a little light on others experience there.

Thanks, Actually too many of them was the problem, I've read so much that I could either take or leave any I found. The .ORG sure has made it alot easier for me, a newbie to the diesel world. Thanks.
