Lots of travelling cruiserheads and many new owners would like to locate a reliable mechanic in their area, or know who to go to if they have a problem on the road.

It has been suggested that we try to establish a sticky thread for people to make personal recommendations for a mechanic they know well and with whom have done business.

Please provide:

City (or County) & STATE
Name of Mechanic
Phone number

Let's try to get some solid recommendations for our brother (and sister) Cruiserheads.

Bobby's a very skilled mechanic. I think he's been working on Cruisers for almost 15 years... he's very knowledgable and has a great shop with plenty of equipment to get most of whatever you need done. He runs a shop called The Cruiser Company, and they work exclusively on Cruisers, 4Runners, and toyota trucks.


btw, no affiliation

David is an experienced and honest mechanic. I have no problem telling anyone to see David with any problem on any cruiser. He regularly sees early 40's all the way up to recent model 100's. Check his site for more information.

Any recommendations for Maryland?

Depending on where in Maryland you are you have a couple of choices. In northern Maryland you have Foxfab just further north, and if your in southern Maryland around DC try Lance at

any recommendations for the San Antonio, TX area???

I'm on the Eastern Shore so those guys are a good two-hours away. But I may end up using them anyway.

ARB recommended these guys to me to have my gears and lockers installed and they did an awesome job. I know it's a Jeep shop but you will be surprised how many Land Cruisers you'll see in there.

ask for owners Tony or Matt -- they do good work, stand behind it 100+%, and will take good care of you
Talk to Malcolm!!!

I know there a lot of guys that hate MAF but I had them do my clutch and it finally got fixed. I initially chose them because it was a couple of $100 cheaper and a friend of mine now works there. I have never driven a Cruiser that shifts this smoothly, it was finally right. :D
