Good 4x4 Shops in CT?

Im about to get myself into a 93 wrangler, only 92k miles, so its been sitting alot. I used to work for a chevy dealer until this week, so i no longer have access to shop/lifts. Was wondering what shops people in the state reccomend, to trust looking this thing over. There are a few spots of rust, fuel level sender is shot and the rear track bar mount has rusted off the axle. All in all it drives pretty nice aside from the horrible rattle of the track bar clunking against the axle.

Im in the Bristol/Hartford CT area, so something around there is cool, but pretty much i'll travel anywhere if the shop is reputable. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Heres a place down the street from me - I haven't personally used them but they have a pretty good setup and have been in the business for a while. Used to be JD's Off Road, changed name to EVB and branched out

I use A and M Auto in New Milford. The owner is one of those mechanics worth his weight in gold! He is the only one I let work on my 95 Wrangler.
