Jeep/TJ electrical specialist in SF Bay Area

Anybody know of a good mechanic that can diagnose an electrical problem on my 98 TJ located in the SF Bay Area (Peninsula/South Bay preferably)?

I've reached the end of my capacity (and patience!) to diagnose this further myself and I have received a number of good suggestions on another thread - none of which have panned out. I have a nagging short somewhere between the brake light wire and the right rear turn signal (yes, i have replaced the MF Switch!).

Ok, but you have to enlighten us.
First, do you have any trailer light connectors wired into the circuit?
Second, are any other lights affected, parking lights, front turn signals, Instrument panel, Etc?
Third, have you tried tracing the wires back form the right rear light housing to the harness inside the body, and forward to the switch?
