Denver area Accessories dealers

Anyone in the Denver area recommend a 4x4 accessories dealer? Looking to add some lights, maybe a new front bumper, some other items down the road. Would rather deal with someone local that has done D90's. Lay out any suggestions and thanks in advance!

Do it yourself... Figure out what you want, order it and install it. It's not hard.

Some items I will be doing myself, others I don't have the time. Thanks for the advice.

Buy a Rock Ware bumper and do the work yourself. Bumpers are simple. It's really not hard at all.

Use relays for your lights. Don't drill your dash for Radio Shack switches. Use quality wire. Don't let others do your wiring for you. They'll invariably do a shitty, hacked job.

Some links for you:

Tons of wiring information on this site: http://www.the12volt.com/relays/relays.asp

Hi Matt,

High Country 4x4 are pretty good guys. http://hcp4x4.com/ They're a block or so from Jeff Corwin's Land Rover shop.

They are literally next door to Jeff (JC'S British 4X4). I've gotten a few things from them and they are great to deal with.

Guys who know and have worked on them for years. So, if you don't feel like doing it, at least buy the parts and take the truck to them.

HC 4x4 does quality work. I had them do suspension, ARB bumper and lights years ago on a 90. Nice install and great customer service.

Rockware for bumpers as has been noted already. He'll install them for you too if you need.

I'd only trust my Rover to Brian at British 4x4 Ltd. in Aurora, and I have used the other shops.

not to take anything away from any other small Rover business, but with Brian, you pay the same labor rate as the other guys, and you get a Land Rover Gold Certified Master mechanic working on your rig, not someone who just graduated from Lincoln College of Technology.
