Question SJ Need Great Jeep Mech

Not to steal sahara98's thunder, but I'm seriously in need of a good Jeep mechanic/guy in the SJ area. I'm in Haddon Twp, but keep my baby between there and Somers Point.

I have an '89 4.2 I6, 5spd, 175K. Currently having (of course) major carb and wiring issues. This was essentially my Dad's Jeep that I'm taking over from him, and I really want to pour some money into it this year to make it run/shine like new - which I know is very easy to do with these trucks.

We keep taking it to a certain mechanic that doesn't seem to really fix the problems, just puts a "band-aid" fix on it. Since I've been driving it, it has a terrible time idling once it's up to temp, and almost always seems to be misfiring, yet our mech can't seem to fix it.

I wouldn't mind putting a couple of grand into it to get it running like I know it should. I appreciate any help you guys can throw my way.
