Coming in a bit late on this, but try Black Diamond Garage on Rt. 46 Eastbound in Parsippany. - Behind a bedding store, shares the building with a U-Haul agency.
Conscientious, competent, and honest.

I was looking for the same thing, but because I'm having headaches with mine and can't seem to find a reputable or knowledgeable mechanic in my area.

...been on vacation, thanks for the responses. (and the offer, Scott)
1. I don't want to work to crawl under my Jeep
2. it's been modified to the point where I would't trust pepboys/dealer,etc
3. I didn't want to go all the way to Stewartsville but looks like that's were I'm headed
....I hope Jim remembers me - lol

Honestly I look at owning a Jeep like a race car. Learn all you can and do as much as you can yourself. If you really look at what labor costs you can afford tools and manuals. Plus a lot of places have rental tools.
If you don't have time or don't feel comfortable then just get reviews of local shops and go from there.
Reason I say doing on your own, my father in law has a chevy always goes to the dealership for everything. Charged him $400 for a new O2 sensor and some fuel injector cleaner. The sensor costs $95 printed on his ticket.

Help - need a mechanic
I have a decently built Jeep and need a trustworthy/knowledgable Jeep mechanic - for maintenance.
I'm in north Jersey but willing to travel a reasonable distance (central).
