If you can recommend a good FJ Cruiser mechanic or shop that you have personal experience with or knowledge of, post their name, address, phone, and web site in this thread and I will update this first post with it. Short positive comments as to why you recommend them would be helpful also. Please, no gripes or bad press, just recommend those shops that you have confidence in. Dealers, independent shops, and individuals are all OK, as long as they are open for business and have your vote as a good place to do business with. Also please state what work they did on your truck to earn your recommendation.
Hopefully this can be a fairly comprehensive list that you could print out and keep in your glove box for an expedition or a road trip, or maybe you just need someone local to you to work on your FJC. It's only as good as you make it, so please post up if you can.
These particular service facilities treated the posting member well. However, proceed at your own risk!
