Lift Installer Recommendation - Ojai, CA Area

Reaching-out to get recommendations for lift installers in the Ojai, Santa Barbara, Ventura, CA area. Don't mind traveling farther...can easily go towards Los Angeles, north or east.

I'm planning on having the Dobinson monotube 1"+ kit installed and need to find a capable, reputable, and experienced installer to do the job.

Many thanks in advance for your recommendations!

If you're willing to drive to SCV then Alpha offroad would be a good choice. He knows toyotas.

Many thanks! Valencia is only about 50-minutes away...very doable.

And great about doing some wheeling! I have some work to get done first!

I just spoke with Art and reviewed their website. Looks impressive and I will book an appointment once parts are in my hands. Good stuff! Thank you again!

It will be close in the front depending on the condition of the coil and strut you are using. If you have any extra weight up front like a bumper or winch then you may hit the front plastic and the rear mudflap.

Odds are you'll be fine.
