Off-road group?? Local Off-road shops

I am new to Las Vegas and I am looking for a good local off-road shop. I am also looking for a good off-road group to join. Any help would be great. I just moved here from Tucson, there was some great off-roaring there, and a great group of people.

There are informal 4wd trips on here from time to time and several of us head out with the Desert Wranglers on a regular basis.

Any thoughts on a good local shop? I think I need to have my lift looked at and a few parts replaced. Really don't want to go to some random shop that is going to tell me i need to do more work than I really need.

Adams Driveshaft in Henderson. Went in last week dropped a D30 off for a regear. John is who I dealt with and we seem to get along great. We will see how their work is but they have a good rep here on the forums. Check out their Facebook page and the website. They come highly recommended.

It was my first time there so I will find out more this week when I get the axle back. Prices are competitive but they seem much more friendly than 4X4 on Decatur.

Thanks jokerchief, I will check them out. I assume your username has something to do with your retired rank?

Been retired 10 years and was the Chief in a squadron called the Jokers!!!

So I kept the name when I left. Looking forward to meeting you. We have a loose informal group here and post up local runs when we go somewhere so fee free to jump in anywhere and maybe get out and do a little wheelin. Its a little slow with the heat right now but something will come up probably after Fathers day.

Awesome! Can't wait to get out there. I'm currently a 6C (contracting).
