Anyone know of any good mechanics that know Jeeps? Honest and reasonable (I know that's asking a lot).

Greater Boston metro west area.

Now I only have a basic needs, like I can't get any bolts off to swap bumpers and side steps, but a good mechanic is good to have on hand.

Thanks.

I know 1 in Westboro MA. He isn't specifically a jeep mechanic but he is a great mechanic and would probably do things like bumpers and sliders/steps. I believe he has done lift kits before at least on personal vehicles when he was younger but don't quote me.

I went to school with his son and I really like him because unlike dealers, he understands when a car is too old to sink real money into and all you want is a cheap fix to get a few more months. He did that to my VW 3 years ago and after giving it to my younger brother, it's surprisingly still running. He also has offered to give me his truck so I can go to work or even drive to my house and pick up the car for free. He is just a very good guy

Anywho, the owner is Jeff and it's Dave's 4 cylinder in Westboro MA. Not a big shop but very honest and very nice

I had my lift put on by Elias and couldn't be happier. Lou (the owner) is a great guy and very helpful. They know Jeeps.

Lou and Chris at Elias are the best. I call Lou, "Doctor Jeep." He's so easy going, but such an automotive expert. I had several major problems that they took care of at a fair price. They'll do a complete inspection of your Jeep, then let you decide what you want to fix, and what order of priority. You cannot find a better place to bring your Jeep, east, west, north, or south.

I know this is a couple months old, but if you're still dealing with bolt issues, go to the hardware store or auto parts store, get a can of PB Blaster, spray the bolts for a couple days, get a T-55 torx bit, ratchet handle, and they should come out fairly easy. Then do yourself a favor and replace the bumper bolts with 1.5"-2" long, 1/2"-13 UNC Grade 8 hex head bolts (hardware store employees will fetch them) and matching washers and nuts. Replace any bolts you take out as you do more work with your Jeep with Grade 8 hex heads. They won't rust into place from these New England winters and also because torx sucks anyways.

I've been happy with the service I've received from Accurate Automotive in Burlington. They are not a 4x4 shop, but they have experience with 4x4 vehicles, lifts, etc. Friendly and have a straight shooter attitude (e.g. Here's what you need to know, whether you spend your money here or not).
