Thumbs up Beaumont area Toyota 4WD shop?

I have a Detroit locker and solid pinion spacer that I need to get installed, and I also have sliders that need to be welded on my 91 4Runner. Is there anyone near me that can be trusted with gear work and that can do quality welding?

I can weld on your sliders. Is this for street use?

Yep, I drive to Port Arthur and back to Beaumont(52 miles) roughly 14 days out of the month.

I have a Spartan for the front but I'm waiting until I pick up a set of manual hubs before I install that.

Contact lumberton offroad. They can point you in the right direction for a gear install. I set up my own, but I only use mine on the trails....

I had heard about them but all the guys telling me are full size so I assumed they didn't have any experience with the mini toyota stuff. The only other place I've seen is Texas Off-Road but they look like like another full size shop.

Thanks for the help so far.

Stay away from Texas offroad. I've seen some shady stuff come out of there. I'd just give lumberton a call. Being a mini shouldn't matter. Are you going to pull the 3rd out and bring it to someone, or bring the whole truck?

Everything I've read online and in the FSM doesn't seem too bad and I feel comfortable pulling the third myself.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly!

x2. One of their guys is one the TJO site. They do some legit fab stuff there and not just bolt on stuff. If they can't do it, I'm sure they can lead you to the right folks.

I called them today and he said that it would be 3 weeks before he could take anymore work in. He referred me to a place off of College called Parsons, said that he's been doing gears for 35 years and can help me out. Went and talked to Cliff who owns the place and he answered all my questions and then some.

Anyone here have any work done by Parsons or know of anyone?

Yea he told me it gets like this because of tax season.

I had the Detroit installed at Parson's, ended up cheaper than he quoted which was a nice surprise. He was pretty booked as well and squeezed in bench work like mine in between the jobs on the racks.

I'll get to try out my new lockers on Saturday since me and a friend will be at Hidden Falls.
