BurtmanI can't speak to the other items but 4 hours for skid plates seems like a lot. Which skid plates? My first install of my front plate took me under an hour, and that was me figuring everything out. I could do it again in 15 minutes now.
So far all the shops near me only work on Jeeps/Toyotas. I don't feel confident with wiring the light bar thats in the bull bar. I may have them install that and the lift.Have you shopped around? $115 is dealer territory. The bull bar/light bar wiring should not take a combined 3.5 hours, but it is reasonable. I would think a 4x4 shop would have that done in 2 hours, 3 hours easy. And agree with @Lunarmonkey, 4 hours for skid plate is outrageous. Cannot speak to the leveling kit, as I have no experience there.
Yea, I will probably put the skid plates on myself.$460 for skid plate install even if it’s for front AND rear is a not a good deal at all.
That an easy DIY item. Unless you don’t own a socket set and ratchet.
Also make sure they have done a Ridgeline before you commit. Most 4x4 shops are used to lifts but those are simple compare to Ridgeline suspension.
Just an 8hr drive, I'm in! Different shop was around 700 for the suspension. Im confident I can install the bull bar and skids.Come over to my house with a 12 pack and 100 bucks, we'll get it done in 6 hours lol.
At the least you should be able to attempt putting on the skid plate and bull bar. It woulndt hurt to attempt these since youre not taking anything apart. If you dont feel confident in taking apart suspension, I would shop around for another quote, seems high to me. But what do I know about prices, ive DIY-ed everything on my cars.
