Default New lift, wheels and tires, and the shop screwed it up

I just need to vent for a minute..... went to 4 Wheel Parts in San Antonio, showed them a pic of what I wanted, and the guy said no problem. Even assured me that the wheels would be spaced properly to be even with the wide pocket flares I wanted. Went to pick up the truck after they had it an extra day past when they told me it would be done and it was wrong. The wheels were spaced as close to the inside as they could've been. When I went back in with the veins in my forehead bulging and pointed out their mistake they wanted another $760 to correct it. At that point I was so furious I made them take the flares back and refund me, then I left.

Trucks is all they do, and they had one job.... I'm 100% confident that if I had decided to take this on myself and suffer the week or two of recovery (getting too old to do stuff like this on my back in the driveway). With the information and support here I wouldn't made such a mistake.

Getting off my soapbox now.

Everytime I order from them I have to return the parts for them to correct it. I even had a guy argue with me and tell me that ram doesn't make a 4 door quad cab. If you ask me they are way over priced. Here in Denver they charge $150 for an alignment....

Looks like a bit of a Cali lean which is probably easily corrected with spacers. Beyond that, the tires do look a smidge small in the wheel well but it's not that bad imo.

Beyond that, I think the truck looks great. It could be a lot worse.

P.S. this should be in the lifting subforum, no?

What's the exact setup that you're running? Lift brand and size? Bilsteins on the front? What's the wheel offset and tire size?

The front end looks way too high, almost like the installed the bottom seat on. Bilsteins upside down if you have them.
