Need a mechanic in the philly area

I live on Long Island and broke down in philly. Lost my clutch pressure on my 2.5L 5spd YJ. I was driving to work (I work on tug boats) and was on i95 about 5 miles from the dock when my clutch pedal had zero resistance and I couldn't shift. I knew my clutch was getting high, synchros weren't great and the clutch slave cylinder was changed about a year and a half ago.

The keys won't be back with the jeep for 2 weeks. And I'm on the boat for 4 weeks anyway so there's plenty of time for this. But I will need this to be driveable in 4 weeks when I'm ready to drive back to NY.

Just for the record I'm not a NY Ranger fan so don't hate me. Lol I'm actually rooting for the flyers since I hate the rangers. Anyway I'm gonna ask a couple guys that live local to the dock if they know any mechanics but figured I would ask my fellow jeepers for help. Figuring maybe someone is a mechanic or knows a good shop that's reasonable

I really don't have a ton of money to throw at this.

So you replaced the slave but not the master? My bet would be there. Message when you get back and I may be able to help

Nah the master and slave were both replaced. I just mentioned the slave cuz some people don't replace the slave if they don't have to. That internal slave is a pain. I'm in Louisiana right now. PhillyMike put me in contact with a mechanic. Just waiting on his quote today. Really hoping I can get this done before I get back from sea in 2 weeks. Otherwise it's gonna cost me about $300 in gas and tolls to drive from Long Island to trailer it back to my mechanic.

Black ops 2: not sure if my inbox is full but if you know someone who can help let me know. This had to be towed from my company dock to wherever it's getting worked on
