UPDATE: Body lift isnt being installed the frame has a 13" long crack. The company said they want to extend my harness and brake lines and upped the quote from $350 to $1000 for the BL and $1500 for the frame. Now the frame issue i never knew about so im running an accident report on the truck as we speak. I could make a claim or just fix it. The lift is in the classifieds now

the 1st shop was going to to the entire thing but he wanted a redic amount and he said i need to extend the wiring harness and brake lines. so i called him back and said put the truck out side. ( obviously no knowledge and didn't trust him) so the new shop WC Motorsports is doing all of the work.

Yea so I have the truck now. So the truck was making the loudest BANG noise I have ever heard any vehicle ever make. Well it never made that noise. I looked at all the body bolts well the shop that would do it for cheap well cheap means horrible work. Both Fvckin core top bolts were just chillen next to the core supports. Yea f them hard core. I\'ll post a pic soon of it. What should I do about letting them know ? I\'m going to call

Well, i'd say you better call. they should be fixing some stuff for free now.
at the very least, i'd ask for a refund of ANY money you paid them.

I would rip them a new one.. It is their job to install this stuff correctly. There could have been some bad consequences due to their poor efforts.

What this shop basically did was look at the kit did a few small stuff (you know like the little stupid un-clipping stuff).. Then got to work on the core supports. Then they called me " this kit involves more work than we originally anticipated, you need to extend you brake lines and your full wiring harness that's to do it the correct way thus increasing the cost and time" I told them to put it back together (i guess they didn't listen)

WC Motor-Sports is doing the Body lift tomorrow after noon they specialize in this type of work i trust them not the dumb asses that charged me 3 hours in labor that ill be getting back in my pocket
