Good 4X4 shops in Atlanta?

Does anybody have any reccomendation on good 4X4 shops around Atlanta. I live in Canton and I think I may need a new rear end soon. Looking for someone you knows 4X4 not just you average mechanic cause the new rear end will be just the beggining and I want to find someone to do all the work I might need.
Thanks
Jason

Any good mechanic is what I would suggest rather than some of the 4x4 shops around here. Like 4 wheel parts charges to much for installs but good on parts price if they get your order right the first time. So far I have had good luck with my parts being correct so far. As far as working on your rig their is one shop in Dallas that I might suggest is Extreme Trucks it was Top Speed before the shop changed hand use to be a good shop to deal with But I don't know about now. Might look in to them see what you hear and call to get a price for parts and lagor.

I used Appalachian Off Road in Jasper. 706-692-5337.

He can set you up with whatever you want, and he does good work. I used him for my SAS in my 94 f150 and will be using him for the bronco work....

You can tell him Paul told you to call him, not like it will get you better prices, but if you end up going with him, maybe he'll appreciate I got him business.....haha

BTW: I have no connection with him, other than he has done some of my work, i DO NOT work for him or get a commission or anything.
