Reputable Shop near Portland Area...

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a reputable shop for suspension/drive-train/custom work on a Wrangler?

Got into a lil accident and am thinking that instead of fixing it back to stock I may as well, upgrade suspension from stock to aftermarket.

Can anybody recommend an honest shop that does good work at a decent price, and will not just take me for a ride?

Thoughts???

Sure, get ahold of Dave Kishpaugh at Jeep West. Not just a wrench turner, he also builds custom suspension and steering set ups.

I also Highly Highly recommend Mountain Air Off Road. His name is Shane Fay and just did 4.88 gears and ARB's for me. Super nice guy, spent almost two hours with me on the phone the first time I called him going over every detail. Was very informative of the whole process. Did great work! As honest as they come! His shop rates were very competitive as well!

(503) 730-3263.

Same here. Go with Moutain Air Shane Fay. Does great job and knows lots about jeep. His rate is going to be half what you are going to pay at Jeep West. He is certified jeep mechanic. Shane knows his stuff and get Rubicon Express suspension products from him.

Never go to Superior. Shotty work and have called Shane in past for help.

And expensive.

Shane Fay or Jeep West hands down the best shops around. They both have worked on my rigs. SHane has for over 7 years. Jeep west the last year.

x2, Dave's a great fabricator - does functional custom work. I would trust my Jeep to Dave.

I believe both shops...... Mountian air offroad and Nick and Dave (Jeep West) will be coming on the 29th TSF run. Can meet them all if you make the run too.
