Looking to have my 2017 Cherokee lifted with a HS kit. Anyone know of a good mechanic to do this in the valley. I d appreciate any leads on this. I am just not able to do this myself.

I bought everything online and had a local ASE mechanic install everything. Including all new Moog front end and suspension parts. I reside in the East Valley..

I had my MFC kit installed by Doetsch Off-Road in Chandler. Quality install and they had it aligned also. They are the local dealer for MFC, ask for Ben, 480-848-8482.

Yes.. But he just followed the directions and watched a few videos I sent him.. He had no issues. He's a service manager for a local Lexus dealer.... I had alot done all at once including the lift kit.. So what I was charged was much higher... But if I'd guess, I'd say around 150 just for the lift kit. He also installed my dobinsons and bilsteins, front and back, and strut mounts. And another time installed my rocksliders. He wasn't happy with those.

It's Turd Rated!!

You need some good desert terrain tires, and you'll be fine Fred. Heck, I want to come down and go with you guys. I have a family member in Prescott who I try to visit a couple times a year, maybe we can plan a ride...😎
