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!

Brian and Mike seem less concerned with selling crap off the shelf and more interested in what you want to do with your truck - why you want to mod it. If you stop in, they drop what they're doing and talk to you about YOUR truck, your goals... and give you a few options - always ending with "... if it were mine..."

Probably one of the best shops in the nation... be warned, you will likely go in looking to purchase a simple lift kit, and leave several months later with a $250,000K race machine. :lol:

This is my father's shop; he's considered one of the best shops in Kansas City Northland by his customers, not just me. He was voted the #1 Automotive Repair Shop in the Kansas City Northland in 2007 by independent customer survey. He often get's referrals from dealers and other local shops when they get stuck with a drive-ability problem. He does custom welding projects too. He doesn't give a specific discount for forum members but he'll take care of you in a bind, do it right, and not take advantage.

Hmmm...I see lots of FJ's on the road here in eastern MA, but no mechanics? I'd even consider going to NH, but nothing listed there either. Please tell me that I don't have to continue with the dealership...I am NOT happy with them.
