x5 with D and R Driveline friendly guys and can answer a lot of your questions. There is also another 4x4 shop that deals with a lot of jeeps called Cascade Four Wheel Drive and I think they are located out by Plainfield. I have heard they do some good work too.

i would stay away from cascade 4wd, he has a host of knowege, but is pricey and i have not had too much good experience with him other than ordering parts from him.(no inventory, has to order everything in) stick with D&R, or JCR

D&R for close, solid reputation and fine work.

JCR for a little bit of a drive and a peek at the infamous "monkeyevil". You will not be disappointed and they do quality work and wristers.

Allpro for a drive also and Ken will treat you to a candle light dinner and a romantic walk on the beach.

I would flip a three sided coin in order to decide.
