Anyone know of a good mechanic in the Melbourne/palm bay area? I see some oil dripping and wanted to have someone trustworthy and jeep-intelligent take a peek at it before I hit the trails again :(

I think most people do it themselves around here or have a friend that does it for them.

I finally found a mechanic that I trusted a few years ago; lived just down the street from us and my wife was their daughters 2nd grade teacher... figured if they trusted us with their kid, I could trust 'em with my wife's car :p.
They moved to Texas last year! :banghead:
My brother has been going to Dick's Auto on Washburn Rd in Melbourne for decades. They've always treated him right and seem to do good work.
The In-laws use Buz's Auto on Wickham/ Aurora. Though I have no experience, they seem happy with his shop.
Also, my Niece's husband works at the Honda dealer in PB. I have no idea if he's any good or is familiar w/ Jeeps, though. I need to call him, actually; the wife's CR-V has started to misbehave (blinking 'idiot lights').

Thank you for the info derfC! I ended up taking it up to Jeepers Den. Oil leak was a quick fix (oil sending unit) that I did in the driveway but my D60 front axle started leaking gear oil so they are replacing seals for me and taking a peek at the whole thing. So far I have been impressed with their Jeep knowledge and service. Only problem is they are up off highway 50 in orlando so if I ever really screw up something I cant fix on my own... that would be a costly tow.
