I've never used Just Jeeps myself, but what I have heard is they are also $$$ like Jeep Masters. I think it really depends on what work needs to be done. If it is something specific to your 4wd, upgrading axle, etc.., then they would be a good option. But for normal maintenance things, shop around.
I am currently on my 2nd jeep. When I first bought it, I brought it up to Jeep Masters just to have them get under it and tell me everything that needed to be done or should be done.
they wanted 175 dollars to change the oil in both differentials--they said they both needed to be done--I did both myself for 30 dollars in supplies in my garage. When I did the front, the oil didn't even need to be changed, yet they said it did.
For a rear main seal oil leak, they quoted me close to 500. Mechanic down the street quoted me for 300.
You just have to shop around. If you are in south austin and need general work done--check out Allies Automotive off slaughter lane. I have taken a few vehicles there for some work.
