Anyone know of a good LC mechanic in the PA/NJ/NY area. I'm trying to find someone that knows FJ80s -- I need some work done and I'd rather not use dealer shops in my area. Thanks!

I'm actually going to be pouring some serious $$ into my LC (probably new tfer case, maybe some differential work, upgrade suspension, etc.) and whatever I do I want it done right by someone who's worked on 80s alot. So it would be great to find an FJ80 genius to help.

Try Up N Over Innovations in Aston, PA. Wayne knows his stuff and is experienced with 40s, 60s, and 80s. http:\\www.upnover.com[/quote]

I wouldn't waste my time there.

Kallen - not sure why you'd need a new tcase, but can hook ya up. Will pm you in the am with contact info. (Just got back from driving 10 hours and mounting the new rear bumper :flipoff2:)

Hacketstown? Don't think so. There's a good dude in Trenton, a good dude in Stewartsville and a good dude in Montclair. Trenton and Montclair are true cruiserheads. :flipoff2:

Place in Stewartsville is ok4wd.com - call and ask for Chuck at 908.454.6973. These guys work on more than cruisers, but they are good guys and always stand behind their work. Chuck is a true cruiserhead and all the mechanics there are good guys.

Junk, I'm also looking for some service on my 97 LX450 such as adjusting the alginment, serving the axles and repacking the wheel bearings. Aside from Stewartsvile location, do you know of any good 80's series mechanic in NYC or CT area.

Hello Kallen123
My shop has changed somewhat from what you had seen about a year or so ago
I can handle all the cool stuff that you need much better now (2 9000# clearfloor lifts :eek: and new trans jack too ) :D
shoot me an IM and I'll get back to you
As for anyone in the NYC area Im 15 mins off of 7A of the NJTP and about 5 mins from the NJT train stations in both Trenton (bad "Hood") and Hamilton (very nice )
Drop truck off I take you to the station and pick you up when done .
HTH some of you
