time to fix up the YJ

I've had my Wrangler for 20 years and in the last 2 years rust has been spreading like a disease. I'm also in need of some new tires so I figure its time to do some major work on it again. Anyone know of a great shop in the Michigan or Chicago area? In the last 10 years I've added a 3" body lift, bumper w/ wench, cargo racks and recently a 4.5" suspension lift. I'm looking to add locking differential and tires along with the body work. The shop I went to before has experience in classic cars, not 4x4s. I want someone who will work with me to make the right choices in modificaitons to meet my needs. 2 years ago my first child was born and I thought I'd have to trade the Wrangler in for a family car but now my son LOVES the Jeep and is sure to point out all the ones he sees going down the road. His first words were "dada's Jeep". I can't imagine parting with it. I have property in northern Michigan so I plan on riding the trails with him in 5-10 years. I just have to make sure the Jeep doesn't fall apart by then.

Thanks all. I wish I could do the work myself but I don't have the tools or the garage... or the knowledge. It took me 3 years to get my lights to work. I thought about taking off the fendors to see how bad the rust is. What would I need for doing bondo work?
