Shop Recommendation: Bumper Installation

Can anyone recommend a good shop that can a install a front bumper?

I got one on order from Shrockworks (long lead time) for my 4runner and I'm trying to find someone to do the install and possibly have the bumper delivered to their shop (right now it's being delivered to my place in North Ogden). Any recommendations would be great.

I realize this is quite a distance from Ogden, but Cruiser Outfitters in Sandy would know exactly what it would take to do the work... they do bumper installs on Toyota's all the time!

Their website says its a simple bolt on. Why not do it yourself?

Their not really installing parts other than their own retail items is my understanding.

Weights more than I do, limited garage space, etc.

If they are smart they would have set it up like the ARB bumpers, they have a set of plates that bolt to the mounting points on your frame that weigh about 5 pounds, then you set the bumper on them, then it's just line up the holes and bolt the bumper to the mounting plates.
Found this http://www.toyota-4runner.org/attachments/5th-gen-t4rs/151279d1427583652-shrockworks-bumper-installation-4th-gen-4-runner-front-bumper-instructions.pdf and it looks more like it's one piece and you need a friend to hold things where they need to be while you install. If it were me I'd suspend it from my garage with eye bolts in the ceiling with some tie-down ratchet straps to get it about the right height and once you get 2 bolts lined up the rest should go in pretty easy.

Gen 5 is slightly different from gen 4. You'll
run into subtle differences.
Especially in the front half of the frames. It's close to the same but you're
going to need to do some modifications. In order to make them fit.
I ran into this on some Icon brand parts i put on a few weeks back.
So if your bumper manufacturer is as inept as Icon was when it comes to instructions.
A phone call to them to discuss possible differences before you or a shop attempts it
couldn't hurt. Just so there aren't any surprises. And it would probably save you some
heartache long term, and definitely some money if you choose to have a shop
install it. Have you ordered it yet? Maybe the markup Cruiser charges would be
less overall if you factor in what a shop would charge if it's not one they sold you.
Don't be afraid to ask "how much extra do i need to pay you to install this one? . ."

Check around with a number of different shops and none will return phone calls. Are they all so busy they can't return phone calls. :p
