Shops in Dallas?

I'm looking for a recomendation for a good shop in Dallas that is well versed in the later model Broncos. I have a list of things I need done to my '95 and don't have time to do all of these myself. Rear main seal, oil pan gasket, thermostat, exhaust leak, power steering leak to name a few of the more annoying items needing to be done. Anyone have any referrals they could pass along? Thanks

overall, for the amount of work he did, the time it took, the price, and the way it drives now i'm happy.

they rebuilt my transmission for me. it was done in right at a week. i had just pulled my engine and did a reseal, but forgot to RTV the oil pan gasket. while the transmission was out, he let me go up there and drop the oil pan, RTV it, and then put it back together. he actually didn't want to do it...didn't want the responsibility.

my impression is that one guy rebuilds the transmissions (the owner) while he has a few guys who are responsible for pulling and installing them. the wiring harness wasn't installed properly, but he fixed it in 5 minutes.

i'm 99% sure he left a small dent on the rear quarter panel but i didn't notice it until a couple days later. didn't bother bringing it up.

he did, also, help me trouble shoot what turned out to be a bad axle bearing.

Outside of doing the wrenching yourselves or using 4WheelParts in Dallas, has anyone used another shop for lift kit installations?

you could try dallas offroad. i know about them through a jeep group but installing a lift is pretty straight forward. they seem like decent folks from what i've read.

Looking for recommendations for a reliable shop in the DFW area to do an engine rebuild or installation of a crate engine for my 1991 bronco 5.8L. I would appreciate any advice y'all might have.
Thanks
JC
