With Ben Ashcraft moving, Slee being booked up for the next 2 years, and Jesse at ATLR not wanting to work on anything but OEM parts, I need someone who I can work with to do the following (because I am too lazy to get out there and do it myself):

- Install Icon extended brake lines
- Swap rear springs
- Install Slee front bumpstop extensions

Anyone have any recommendations or confident in doing this and want to make a few extra bucks?

You might call Japanese Auto Service in Wheatridge. I've had good experiences with them in the past.

Would Joe at CTS do it?

I know Robbie is moving, is Ben Ashcraft @Three Wheel Ben also moving?

Redline in the springs would probably do it.

Ross and Doc are great guys, and JAS is an awesome shop, but they tend to be quite expensive.

I recommend Matt Radder @ GarageWorks. I met him through working with CO4x4RnR - he's a good dude, has reasonable labor prices, and knows his stuff. He's done quite a bit of work on my 100 as well. Tell him I sent you.

Anybody ever use Toy-Auto Masters on Broadway a few blocks south of Hampden? They have a 60, 40, and 80 that are sitting out front pretty regularly. Always been curious about that place.

My brother has a mechanic shop in Englewood. He works on Cruisers a lot and we have done all of the upgrades together on my 80 and 100 series; from installing the supercharger to each of my lifts from Slee. In fact he would help flip Cruisers for a local dealer and that's how I became a Cruiser fanatic.

I used them about 10 years ago to replace a head on my 4runner. They were fairly priced and did solid work, they also had a free loaner car. I saw at least 4-5 100 series in the lot the last time I drove by. Its a shame that Griff's is no longer next door.
