Need Base Plates Installed Mesa, AZ

I am in the Mesa, AZ area. I have a new Grand Cherokee and I need to get a Blue Ox base plate and accessories installed. I was quoted over 4000 installed with parts and labor(Base Plate, Tow Bar, Braking system and so on). I calculated I can get all parts online for under 2000 so they are charging over 2000 in labor cost. Seems high I just want to get a second or third quote.

Does anyone have any recommendation on places I could get a quote from.


PS. My first and only quote so far has been by La Mesa RV.

Try calling Quality Bumper, they have multiple locations in the Phoenix area. It's been a while, but I think they did the Wrangler that we bought in Scottsdale back in '09.

My regular installer (three different vehicles) is in Austin, TX if you're heading that way.

Another vote for Cliff's Welding in Mesa. Had a blue ox and Air Force 1 installed on 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit in May. Very satisfied.

I have never used Cliffs Welding for a install. But like to stop there to see if they have anything I may need for towing. Shelves full of towing parts and gadgets.
