Hey, just drove my Jeep from Colorado out to San Francisco. Looking for the same ... let me know if you find anything, or if anybody else has suggestions.

I spin my own wrenches, the dealers around here tend to be over priced and under staffed. Last time my Jeep hit a dealer it came back with a dent in the hood.

I'm in Fremont. Just had my clutch done at T&L Elite auto in Union City. Chris is the guy to talk to. Nice guy. My clutch and slave cylinder ran me $850 and I got it back right away.

Is this a 4x4 shop?

No. He's a regular mechanic. Specializes in transmissions. Give him a call and see what he says.

There a 4wd.com shop in San Jose. They have a shop there. I've got parts from them but never had word done there.

I pass on them, the people they have working there don't know a helluva lot. Either that or they just don't show it. You can't BS a mechanic, but they sure as hell have tried. They've tried to schedule me out over a week for a simple tire rotation and balance, so obviously there scheduling isn't very good either. Took the jeep to another local shop and had a balance and rotate done in less than an hour, and for 1/2 the price.

Thanks for the 411. The prices seems decent on parts and since I can pick them up you save on shipping. But sounds like a shop to avoid for work.

X2 on what Ray says. 4WD is good for sales and that's about it. IIRC Shaffer's off-road just opened up near Oakland. In San Jose/Campbell, there Arabia's Overkill. A bit pricey but quality is way up there. I know there's a 4x4 shop in Fremont but I can remember the name but from what I've heard, he does solid work.
