Looking for a good jeep mechanic in Colorado Springs

My daughter needs a jeep engine rebuilt. The person we bought it from said it over heated and stopped running in January of this year. It will turn over and sounds like it wants to start but it wont run. Might just need a head job but if we go into it that far she wants to have it redone or have a long block put in. Thanks for your assistance in finding a reputable mechanic. Or advice on a engine shop.

1993, 2.5, no ac, manual trans, Engine intact not taken apart.

Thanks for the replies

My daughter has a limited budget. About $1900. I am trying to figure out the best way to proceed. I could get a long block for her but then she would not have enough to have some one to put it in and I would have to try to do the work. I could have it diagnosed which would take up some of her money and then she might not have enough to fix it. I could find a used one but she would get no warranty but she could have it installed. What would you suggest she do? I used to be a mechanic but that was a LONG time ago.
I could call you tomorrow .

Thanks

Well I rebuilt my jeep from the ground up when I bought it, cost me like 2k, but I also replaced the CAT, and a few other emission parts, and if u want I can help u do whatever it needs, and I won't really charge anything, as long as u can get the parts

I use KC Performance. Their mechanic, Kevin, knows his stuff and his rates are around half of what I found at Predator and 4Wheel Parts. He's replaced my gears, axles, and every little thing my Jeep needs. Their on Fillmore about 1/2 mile east of I-25. Just look for the boats on the south side of Fillmore.

Don't go to 4wheel. They are way over priced
