OKC mechanic
 
Anybody know a decent jeep mechanic in OKC? Going to get a Teraflex leveling kit and not sure I trust myself to get it right :banghead:

Sorry, but I don't know of any in OKC. It's a fairly easy job though. All you need are some basic tools, floor jack, jack stands and a torque wrench. It'll take you about half a day the first time, but then you get quicker.

Thanks

I had Custom off road install my lift a couple years ago. I was very satisfied with their work.

I shot them a message. I got the other stuff done that I needed to but need some lights wired up and I do my best to stay away from electrical.

If somebody in the OKC area knows how to do it I can show up with the beer :dance:

They will only install parts bought from them. So if the OP buys the kit from them, they'll do it. :thumb:

Tony and Robbie from Goodyear do nice work. It's Rob's Goodyear, SW 58th and Western. Don't undersell this place as a tire shop, Tony travels part time with the monster truck circuit and knows his stuff. Robbie is a good owner/manager. (405) 212-5860

They were the ones guys to get rid of my death wobble in the TJ, and I have been with them ever since.

Wow! Just noticed I posted a bad phone number above - oops!

I was having a major wiring issue with my daughters 02 4.0. I had it at the Jeep dealership on NW Expressway where they changed out the cam sensor, crank sensor, oil pump drive, all 6 coils and it still wouldn't run right. It was like someone would turn of the key for a split second and then turn it back on. So I called Rob @ Rob's Goodyear.

He called back yesterday to report he had found the problem. There was a wire in the main loom that had rubbed the bell housing causing an intermittent short. Hats off to Rob and his crew, they fixed in a few hours what the dealership couldn't fix in a week. Now they are going to do the brakes, swap out the trac bar put on new Duratracs and a few other things.

If you are having issues with y our jeep I highly recommend Rob and his crew. With my daughter moving away for the first time and starting school it's nice to know a good shop is available to do work I don't have time for.

Thanks Lusus

Thanks for the review! I'm glad to see another Jeeper happy with their work. I had been told to go there years ago when I had death wobble issues that would randomly show up on the TJ. I had been to every shop in OKC and three dealers and none could fix it. Tony fixed it within a day, it was all alignment, nothing worn or replaced. That was what sold me on their service.

Since I am under warranty right now I haven't been using them, I really hope someone else with a little older Jeep finds this info useful.

Glad there is some place local to trust. I just ordered some new springs 18/60 for my sport and a leveling kit...I plan to bring it to these guys and have them put this stuff on. My experience w/ qualified Chrysler technicians is non-existent.

I have used John Gatlin since 1999 over at David Stanley Dodge in Midwest City, he's a good service writer. Recently I was told Brian Fox is over there too in service, he's also a member of Red Dirt Jeeps, lots of others have recommended him too.

I still watch the techs like a hawk. I used to have a good tech over there named Mike, this was 4 years ago probably, he was great with my Jeep. He moved on to another job though, that was also about when the TJ was out of warranty and I found Tony at Goodyear.

For basic things that are to the book, a good dealer is fine. Even with a simple leveling kit though, I'd only use Tony (but I'm partial of course).
