PostSubject: BMC needed.   Mon Mar 04, 2013 2:55 am

Whats up fellas? I have an issue, I need a BMC but do not own a welder or have anyone I know that has a welder but i need the chop. I want the metal stock welder back for the factory look. Im only getting slight rub turn all the way to the right. None on day to day driving but I might as well get the extra metal off that Toyota thought was a good idea to install. My question is does anyone know someone that can give me a factory look but not half a day drive from me. I'm an hour away from the NC line and don't mind paying for it as long as it's a good clean look.

As usual, Brian @ Auto Solutions does the best BMC I've seen... but that would involve driving all the way to Charlotte Sad

Have you got an alignment done to adjust the caster forward? If it is just minor rub that could very well solve it completely.

Agreed, that was my problem when I lifted mine and this fixed it perfectly

A blueroom thread says Iron Pig wherever that is (Fredricksburg?) was 2 hours @ $95/hr + $10 in material.

I am very impressed with auto solutions job. It looks like factory body mount. I will actually be in charlotte in April for a week for work but hate to wait that long. On my alignment I just told them to get me straight and square. Lol. Didn't want to confuse those guys with the lr ucas. Although they could have handled it I'm sure. I may see if auto solutions can work something out for me next month while I'm in town.

You just let me know what you think. I am free every other weekend (working this weekend) and don't mind helping I just don't have the welder to replace the stock that is cut off. Also I want that clean look and not sure that I have the patients for that.

+1 for Iron Pig in Fredricksburg. I used to live up that way, and while I have not had any of their work on my rig, I have seen some of their stuff, and its all quality work. Just throwing my 2 cents in.

Been a while since I have been able to get on and spend any length of time. With that being said I did get the BMC done by Brian at Auto Solutions and I can say that I am completely satisfied. Not only was he a super nice guy but the work was excellent. Other than the fresh primer and paint on the under side of the vehicle it is no way that you could tell any cutting was done. It even still looks like the factory style mount. A+++ for those guys.
