    Default Where to get work done on my Jeep!

    I have a feeling this thread already exists, but honestly am having trouble finding it... maybe Iím a bad looker so if someone could point me that way that would be much appreciated.

    but, if it doesnít exist, I need help finding a Jeep guy in NH! I had to get some work done and I have a little warranty coverage so I got it assessed by a dealer. Not only did not of it fall under the coverage but they gave me some super expensive quotes for what I need done! I wasnít super surprised because the reputation some dealerships have for service, but it still was a little shocking. Anyways, I need to replace my tie rod (which Iím hoping to do myself), replace my rear brakes, and maybe new gaskets for my diffs. I talked to a guy at Steveís Jeep country and he was SO helpful so Iím thinking of going there... any other places you guys recommend? I donít want to spend an arm and a leg, but I get that good work isnít cheap either! Thanks

    Check if we have any left on the vendor list, but I will say I have worked with Steve's in the past and have been nothing but happy, service and purchase.

    Lightbulb Someone say "Jeep guy"?

    Still have a garage, so if you want to make the big drive, I can probably save you even more money ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.
    Why buy a Wrangler if you don't take the top and doors off?

    Thank you very much Tundra for the solid props.

    Willing to help, as it helps both of us. Keep in mind that there is no factory warranty here, since I am not a stealership. Plus don't want to get involved in major work because my garage is just that, not a full service shop. Nor driving that distance, do you probably want to leave it for the bigger projects anyways, or if there is an unforeseen issue that takes longer than expected to correct. The stuff you listed is very doable, so no problem there. Oh and it would have to be done Friday-Sunday(my usual days off ;)
