Can any of you guys recommend a shop to do a PPI (pre purchase inspection) in or near Lafayette?

I'm looking at a truck, but would want it checked over before making a deal.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I also read about LA Diesel Works (anyone have experience with them??) and they said they would do a tip to tail inspection: https://www.facebook.com/Ballin-On-A-Budget-Motor-Sports-181980081815075/

Not read about Calvin's. The Google Street View makes it look like more of a backyard shop and not as serious a business? https://www.google.com/maps/place/Calvin's+Auto+Repair/@30.2354105,-93.3499501,3a,75y,10.59h,79.26t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sfYW7AP1X0HVq7N928ZTw7A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x6088e457958ae3b7!6m1!1e1

I'll call PPEI tomorrow...not sure if they are strictly mail order or not.

Thanks again for the names....anyone with more, please chime in too!

Never heard of LA Diesel Works. Calvin's is a true shop with a great reputation. PPEI just opened up a shop last year sometime. Go check their Facebook page out.

Thank you!

I ended up passing on the truck in question..it was a 2011 Denali on CL in Caraco for $30k through a small dealer called Miller's Auto Sales. Family seemed really nice, but the truck had (3) accidents according to Autocheck and yet the owner said he only believed CarFax where is showed (2) accidents. Even given that, he wasn't willing to come down on price to a level I felt better represented the value of a truck with (3) accidents. Bummer as it already had EFI Live and Exhaust which I would do to the truck I buy.

The search continues...

Does anyone have any advice on good 4x4 shops between New Orleans and Lafayette for installation of lift kit (2016 2500HD)? Looking for a reputable place. Appreciate any recommendations

There is a place down on Chauvin, called big boys toys. He did my leveling kit for a great price and does good work. Other than that, a place called Diamond C in Houma are the only places I know of.
