yeah for the record, i'm really not picking on anybody here, you want to pay somebody to work on your rig, that totally cool, go for it.
it just kind of sounds unpleasant and expensive to me.
and seriously, i'm no mechanic either (i'm a consulting architect actually)! jeeps are sooooo easy to work on, there is no special magic knowledge with these things.
now if you need to change the timing belt on an Audi RS4, i think you better take that thing up to the stealership, but jeeps are MADE to be messed with! go git yer hands dirty, save a ton of money, have some fun, make some friends, etc. etc. etc. these things are designed and assembled by humans and are designed to be work on by humans of average or lesser intelligence.
anybody, and i mean ANYBODY with thumbs, a driveway and basic tools can jump right in on one of these things and figure it out, even if they've never built a dang Ertle model car jeep.
but yaknow, some people just don't WANT to, and thats fine...
i'd just like to encourage more jeepers to have more fun with there jeeps, and get in touch with there inner tinkerer
