I need a good-hearted jeep mechanic that we can work on jeeps together in Chicago. I'll buy the parts as needed plus some cash to buy you a cup of coffee; or just look at the jeep and tell me some know-hows!
I love jeeps! I have had 2 Wranglers, 2 Renegades, and a CJ-5 but am never a mechanic. Now I have a 93 and 97 Wrangler. Since the jeeps age, I can only bring my jeeps to shops they know nothing about jeep and often ended up paying something for nothing; or they would tell you to buy expensive new parts instead of to fix it so they can make $$ from both parts & labor. The area where I need help are:
a. restore rusty frame
b. suspension lift kit installation
c. body mount brushing
d. minor engine work
Also, I have a pair of white half doors for sale off my 1993 YJ Renegade in perfect condition. no rust at all.
Hey Jeep973366, I recently found a guy welded my rusty front end frame close to the steering gear box. Work was good and honest!! His address is 2032 S. Elmhurst Rd, Mt. Prospect, Ph# 224-260-1634 Roman. It's a small size shop, rate was very reasonable and negotiable. My next project is for him to put up new body mount bushing and a 2.5" lift kit probably in the next couple week. If you happen to have any work need to be done and in close area, call or text me, so we can go together for even better discount.
Hey guys - I am buy touhy and McCormick. I've been 'rebuilding' my jeep in my own garage. Have most tools and equipment needed for most work. Generally work on the Jeep all weekend. If you guys want to stop by and have a beer and check out some work, let me know.
Will be out of town most of April but back in May.
Hey guys. My Jeep died on my on Tuesday. Couldn't fix it myself so I had it towed to the mechanic. He is still looking at it and hasn't even told me exactly whats wrong. I am waiting to hear from him but its unlikely my Jeep will be back by Sunday. Let's postpone until my jeep is home. Sorry for the trouble.
Finally I found this mobile mechanic to put a RC 2.5" lift kit to my Renegade for only half of the cost of a shop. Hus name is Juan, used to work at a Jeep dealer. very nice to work with. Check him out, his # 773-642-6017.
Hey guys hows it goin, I got a jeep a few months ago, not so good mechanically but eager to learn. I have a manual transmission small leak and transfer case small leak and wanted to get it checked out by a jeep specialist but did not want to kill my wallet (am a college student). I live around Harlem/Foster your help will be greatly appreciated! Will post pics of the leaks tomorow.
