trust worthy shops in vegas area?

I need to replace my rear axle seals, looks like they are pressed on with the bearings. Can anyone recommend a shop that won't rip me off. Or does anyone have access to a press and wants to make some money by helping me?

Vegas 4x4 is my favorite. They are up in the Speedway Industrial/Retail Park. Vegas4x4.com / 702-701-0115

Dan's Driveline over along 95 (north side) and Adams Off-road in east Henderson are also mentioned rather regularly. Google or Yelp either and they will come up easily.

Who else guys/gals?

I used Robert at North Vegas Truck & Jeep 702-685-5163 for my lift, a small 1 man shop, honest, no frills, fair pricing.

I was referred to Larry at Vegas 4X4, spoke to him, seems fair and knowledgeable. Did not use them because he was scheduled out 2 weeks, not what I wanted to hear but a good sign for a shop.

Used 4 Wheel Parts today (only deal with Dan Raymond / referred by Mike W), they do good work, very busy shop, seem to be a bit more pricey, but more convenient for me.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys. I took it to adams. He made room for my jeep to get fixed, even though he was booked for 2 weeks.

I am using Vegas 4x4 for my 2005 TJ Build, which consists of a 3" configurable *Savvy/Currie Lift, replace the front and rear axles with newly rebuilt (by Vegas 4x4 using Yukon Products) Dana 44s out of a 2006 Rubicon, new Currie Steering, Fox Shocks, new drive lines, etc, etc, etc. Larry Nickell is a straight up man who does not mince words, nor does he lead you down a path by over selling.

My build is supposed to start next week, Larry raced in the 2015 King of Hammers. I'll update this post after the build is complete and give a report.


*I would prefer not to use Savvy products, but in this product Currie teamed up with Savvy, much to my chagrin.

Vegas 4x4 completed their scope of work and I have to say that I am pretty happy. Here is a before and after shot.

Larry Nickell and Bret did a fine job on my Jeep. There were two missteps by Vegas 4x4, first one was the Speedometer Gear, they did not replace the factory gear with a 41 tooth to match my gearing and tire size, secondly they did not let me know pre-build that I would need new under armor because the factory transmission skid would not work with the new lift.

All in all I am very satisfied, as all of the mechanics seem to be in fine working order. I would recommend Larry's shop for any Jeep or 4x4 related work.
