4X4 Shops in the NY Capital area

Hi all, I'm not very mechanically inclined and even though I don't need any work done now I'd like to know if there are any trustworthy 4X4 shops in the albany/Glens falls area. I have some mods i'd like to have done in the future and just wanna be prepared.

I asked the same question a while back for a locker install and was given Central Auto down in Albany on Central Ave. I was told they did good work. That was the only place mentioned.

Meantime stuff happened and things broke around here and I spent my locker money on other things. So I never had a chance to check them out.

I am Upstate and Gloversville is not that far. I never heard of them. So I was wondering if anyone has used them???

I need a locker installed and their website looks promising.
