Looking for a Shop around Fairfax

Hey guys. I'm looking for a shop to install some quick disconnects, front lockers, a winch and front bumper. I live in the Fairfax area and most of the suggested shows are pretty far out there. Would anyone know a place around the DC metro area that does a pretty good job for installs? I found a local body shop that charges $100 an hour, but I don't think this is their usual request, and I think that their price is a little high. Any estimations on how long this install would generally take as well.

Badboyz in woodbridge or hightec in Chantilly. Both seem to to do good work lots done to a libby at hightech and by the look sof the jeeps at Badboyz they appear to be able to do anything very personable but I havent had anything done there yet but have visited the shop. give em a call for pricing.

I would suggest getting in a local club, attend a few get togethers and then see if any of the members want to have a wrenching party. Installing the disco's would take an hour tops, front bumper with a winch probably about the same amount of time with a group who know what they are doing. Provide the pizza and some adult beverages and I bet you will get some volunteers. As for the lockers, that might require giving up some cash to whomever volunteers, that is a bit more work then the rest.

I don't know if you already had the work done but there are a lot of good shops in the Fredericksburg and Richmond area. Given the work that you are trying to have done you might be better off linking up with a fellow Jeeper who could help you put the equipment in. That is how I do my upgrades and it's more fun that way...

There is a new machine shop here called M&D Machine Shope that gives a discount if you say you're from NoVa Jeepers and one of the guys there has been dealing with Jeeps since they were first made. They seem very knowledgeable and I'm going to try them out for the first time soon as my TJ needs some maintenance. They also quoted me the lowest price so...
