Default 4 wheel parts experiences

Iím about put my truck (2017 F1450 Lariat Fx4 Supercrew Cab) to 4 wheel parts store for wheel, tire and lift kit. They will install everything for me. Do anybody have experience with 4 wheel parts before?

Thank you for your experience, Rnlcomp!

I will letís 4 wheel parts install everything for me! But, I read some bad reviews about their done job; specially, their customer service.

They Quote $5,900 (parts+labor) for Rough Country 6Ē lift kit, and Fuel Hostage 20x9, and Nitto tires 35Ē

WHATíS ABOUT THAT?

Can't say for sure on price, I do all my own work so all it costs me is parts. Look up the individual parts and add them up to find the difference in labor cost and post that. Might get a better idea. I can tell you right off the top of my head, the lift kit installed should be around $2,000 give or take a few bux so subtract that from the cost of the wheels/tires and you will need an alignment as well so include that.

It all depends on the tech working on your truck. If you are in the Chicagoland area I’d recommend Maximum Automotive. They work on mine and do good work. The 4 wheel parts guys told me that they can’t even rebuild shocks. They are used to cheap lifts and components that get tossed out in a few years or never go off-road. They also told me there was no way to put a 35” tire in the spare tire area.....wrong!

That was my experience with the Naperville location.

Install cost for all of the local shops for me was $1000.
The nittos are close to $1500. Wheels are probably close to $300/wheel so $1200.
Rough country lift is like $1000
So there is $4700.

Edit* Looked up fuel hostage wheels on customoffset and they are $1120 shipped. Nitto ridge or trail grapplers are $1500 Updated previous numbers
