Question Denver, Colorado mechanic

Hello, new FJ Cruiser owner from Denver Colorado and was wondering if anyone knows a a good mechanic in the Denver (North Denver, if possible). I would like your opinions on some good mechanics. I’ve been going to Mountain States Toyota but I’m feeling the love from this dealership. There has been a couple times where things were misdiagnosed and required multiple trips back.

Thanks in advance

Edit: Sorry, quoted the wrong post!

Slee Offroad in Golden. Hands down the best in the area. They are Toyota specialists, they are honest, knowledgeable and fairly priced. They did my body mount chop, OME 3" lift and suspension, switched out my rear axle when I got rear-ended, replaced my throw out bearings and clutch. When I moved to Virginia and had all my warning lights come on and it had 14 error codes I called them up and Ben spent over an hour on the phone trying to diagnose the problem, knowing he wasn't going to get the work. I went to 2 or 3 mechnics in the Virginia area who couldn't figure it out, in the end Ben got the closest to what the problem was and he didn't even get to look at the FJ.

Re: Denver, Colorado mechanic

@Sky Iíve heard great things about Slee for built FJs as well, but suggested RSG to OP as it sounded like he was basically looking to replace his dealership and had more stock issues. RSG has treated me really well and have always been able to work me in as I seem to break stuff while Iím out west

I just had heated seats installed at RSG and it was a great experience. Friendly, knowledgeable guys, I'd fully recommend them as well.

Have details on what you installed? I may DIY that.

I don't, unfortunately. It was the package they offer to install heaters in the factory seats. They came with 2 settings, and the small round buttons.
