reputable shops for a lift ?

I have a 95 bronco and am wanting to get a lift installed. I live in eagle, colorado and could anyone out there recomend a shop to install a lift kit around the denver area or even grand junction? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My mechanic/friend installed mine with my help not too long ago. Turned out great, he lives in Bailey about 30 minutes west of Lakewood/Denver and is VERY reasonable. I can ask him if he wants to do it if you'd like. He might even charge you a little less if you are willing to help with the job.

I helped him do mine, it wasn't too difficult but it was time consuming. I did rear leafs and new radius arm bushings etc. The rear leafs ended up needing new shackles as well so that made things take longer. If extra parts are needed the local auto parts stores deliver to him which is cool.

What kind of lift? Lift kit in a box or sas swap or a link suspension? Lil B's Custom Fabrication in Englewood of you are planning on doing anything more than a lift in a box.

His name is Brian and he is awesome. Newer business so he only has one option- nail every job with excellence so his name will spread. He will be building my bumpers when I have the dough. He is a wizard with a tube bender and knows suspension very well.

He'd have no problem doing it on his own, would just cost ya a little more. I'll hit him up and see if he wants to do another one, he was pretty stoked to do mine. It beats the average mechanics day of doing brakes, swapping transmissions etc. so he enjoys it.

If you are still looking for a shop, 4-play in rifle is a pretty good shop with knowledgeable mechanics that do almost entirely 4x4 work, I had them do some work on my 79' a couple months ago, very happy with service and the cost wasn't terrible(not a big project like a lift though).
