Hey fellas. Figured I'd introduce myself, seeing as how I'm frequently browsing the forums. I just traded my 2010 mazdaspeed 3 in for a 2015 Nissan Frontier SV 4x4 model. Would definitely like to start taking it on some novice trails and such. First mod is about to be a Bully dog GT tuner. Figured I'd go with that, then a rough country 2.5 inch suspension lift, front and rear iron bumper with a winch on front. Those okay to start with? Any input is always welcomed here. Also looking for locals to go out and do some trails and group meets with. Oh, and my name is Chad.

Until you disclosed your name I was going to ask how Captain Picard was doing...

So I called my local offroad shop, and asked about a lift. Told me it would be $2k for a 3inch sus lift with coilovers/ and $1100 without. Is that a fair price? Seems steep, but I am new to the offroading scene, so i'm a bit oblivious.

What coil overs did they quote you on cause some are 1k plus? But to me that looks little much for that does it include new lca's if needed and the cam bolts the alignment these are all extras that aren't always included. I don't know what your local going rate is so you gotta take that into consideration but there are plenty of CF members in Tennessee that have lifted their pu's. It really is easy work plus you get to know what going on under there if you got tools all you need is an alignment afterwards an if you don't I would piece everything together myself an bring in to have installed somewhere by the hr. 4 flat labor on a lift shouldn't be more than around 2-3 Front an less than 1 rear even less if they are good an if they gotta cut the lca's out in front like I an most owners had to it ain't bad. I did what I consider a cheap lift using Bilstien 5100 f/r an ome 2608 hd coils easier to swallow since I needed new shocks anyway but from what your quoting what I saved doing it paid for the set of new tires I put on last month.

Fwiw I just reread an the lift without is $1100 is that just spacers up front an blocks in back? if it is then my vote is check somewhere else I stopped in one other day also a fab shop over near Ft Worth and inquired about some new sliders as I figured I'd give the job to someone local an save the shipping but to me price they told me they to me just didn't want the work.
