KillerB

You all probably already know Bill does great work, but wanted to share a story. Bill installed gears and lockers for me last month. A couple days ago I went on the first trail run in Westbranch and the 4wd was clunking and banging like a bad drummer and the 4wd was slipping in and out. Grandman, Shawn and I took off the cover to make sure the lock-right in the front was working right. We found not only does Bill do great work, but he had matched the specs from Lock-right to the 0.001"! It could not have been installed more accurately.

I phoned KillerB and he suggested a few other sources for the banging, leading us to determine I need a new chain on my NP-241c t-case (about the only part of my drivetrain KillerB hasn't worked on).

Long story short: KillerB does exceptional work he is always willing to stand behind and support troubleshooting. Grandman and Miffy rock for letting me use their garage on short-notice. Shawn and Grandman are excellent for wrenching when they could have been drinking beers.

I think Killer B has helped build every jeep that has tires bigger then 33" in Michigan.

I think everyone knows about his work quality..

It is ready to be installed (trans and T-case) just need to do it :tonka:


Jeff, anytime... I hope you had a good weekend being on the trails dispite your t-case issues.

I havent had much done buy him except for a drive shaft rebuild and he got my jeep shifting and running right in like five min. I think the laid back attitude and the love of working on these money pits made me a believer in

mostly works out of his garage. he does tons better work than those high priced machine shops. bill was invited to compete in the Top Truck Challenge of 1999 through four wheeler mag. with his then pickup. he doesn't shortcut anything any job he does. he completes a job like he is doing it for himself and rely on its ability whatever he does.

just my input to a great guy
